First off, I want to thank you for being a devoted 99.1 The Whale listener. The Whale Nation is strong as it's always been in the almost 40 years I've been privileged to be this radio station. Here's to wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving weekend and holiday season.

As you know (and I've been getting a lot of calls, emails and texts) we have made it a tradition to air Arlo Guthrie's classic tune, 'Alice's Restaurant Massacree' on Thanksgiving Day. This tradition for the Whale Nation has been going on as long as I've been here, and maybe even longer. And the tradition will continue this year.

I know your Thanksgiving Day can be busy (and probably stressful), so we'll air the classic at 12 Noon and 6pm on Thanksgiving Day. Plus, I'll air another classic for you - Adam Sandler's 'Thanksgiving Song' as well. The times for that song will be at 10am and again at 3pm on Thanksgiving Day.

And that's not all. Beginning Black Friday morning at 10am after the Free Beer and Hot Wings Show, Jen Austin will kick off a three day '2nd Helping Weekend' for the Whale Nation. Each hour we'll air double-shots of great tunes from your favorite Classic Rock artists and bands. It's like 'Two for Tuesday' but on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Plus, while you're out doing that holiday shopping or whatever you have planned for the Thanksgiving weekend, we'll throw in some Classic Rock Christmas songs as well to help get you in the holiday spirit.

Don't forget our awesome weekend shows like 'Time Warp' with Bill St. James on Sunday from 8am to Noon and Little Steven Van Zandt will shut down the Thanksgiving weekend with 'Little Steven's Underground Garage Sunday night at 10.

Take us wherever you go with the free Whale App, and you can hear us on The Whale website, smart speakers with Alexa and Google Home, and of course on your radio at 99.1 FM. Happy Thanksgiving!
