Arlo, now and then.
Forty years ago on Thanksgiving Day, an 18 yr old kid from Stockbridge, MA committed a thoughtless crime. Not only would this crime keep him out of the army, the saga would become immortalized on maps, t-shirts, and of course, in song. The song has become a Thanksgiving Day classic, and gets played about 5 times a day on every pop and rock station in the country during Thanksgiving week. Click on this post's title bar to hear Arlo tell the story of THE ALICE'S RESTAURANT MASSACRE.
Hockey Friday will return next Friday.
Now cooking at THE CHURCH POTLUCK: Bill Knapp's Au Gratin Potatoes, and Bill Knapp's Famous Biscuits
Laura: The local Classic Rock station plays this song at 9, 12, 3, 6, and 9 from the Monday morning before Thanksgiving through Thanksgiving Day. Just to be sure no one misses it.
pc: I am just hoping for some of that American blind justice when my case goes to court!
Great hey from rural australia
I just heard Arlo and Pete Seeger sing "Where have all the Flowers Gone" wonderful... If you weren't at Woodstock then you watched it on the big screen... we grew up at a good time I reckon
