Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant album cover

Thanksgiving is known for its traditions.

For the past 11 years, WEXT's tradition is let loose Chris and Dave as they play Arlo Guthrie's "Alice's Restaurant Massacree." Chris Shaw brings us a bit of an Adirondack Thanksgiving, too. And Michael Eck imagines a gathering for Thanksgiving at the Almanac House in NYC.  Listen for "Thanksgiving Pie" on Thanksgiving Day.
