I grew up in Atlanta, and every Thanksgiving as far back as I can remember, one of the local FM radio stations would play “Alice’s Restaurant” in its entirety – all 18+ minutes of it – several times throughout the day. As traditions go, it was a fine one, and now in our third year, the song has become an AD Thanksgiving tradition, and will remain so for as long as the Drunkard is online.
Oh, and since it is Thanksgiving, many thanks to all of the constant readers and commenter’s who have shared their stories, insight, and knowledge during the past three years. I’m sure you all have some turkey leftovers to attend to, so download this track, listen closely, and feast away.
