Alice’s Restaurant – It’s A Whale Thanksgiving Tradition
First off, Jim Free, Jen Austin, Kat, Glenn and I all wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
We appreciate that you spend a part of your life with us. It's our honor to help make your day just a little bit better with good conversation and great Classic Rock. Hopefully we do just that.
As you probably know, I've been a part of The Whale since the dawn of time, and I've loved every day of it. Coming in to entertain Whale listeners is an awesome job. I fell in love with radio when I was a kid, got the chance to be a part of it when I was 17 and haven't looked back, except to remember all the good times.
One of the really fun parts of this experience is to continue great traditions. Like our annual Food-A-Bago food drive where the success doesn't happen because of us, it's a success because of the generosity of you and people in our community.
Another tradition we cherish is the annual airing of Arlo Guthrie's 'Alice's Restaurant.'
During the 37 years I've been a part of The Whale, we've aired this song on Thanksgiving without fail.
And to make sure you don't miss it on a very busy Thanksgiving Day, we air this classic song three times. We'll be playing 'Alice's Restaurant' for you in its entirety on Thanksgiving Day just after 7 am, 12 Noon and 6pm.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. Enjoy whatever you have going on, and we won't judge you for singing along to Arlo Guthrie's 'Alice's Restaurant!'
