I really miss doing these Thanksgiving shows with Engineer Ken Stanley.
They and the Christmas shows were the most fun for us each year.
Now I am my own Engineer, and Ken has retired.
I have two songs about Going Home in this chapter.
One is a personal favorite I can't seem to ever leave out that I remember being so hard to find in record stores I would ask other people to look for me, and they would always ask Linda's Farm?
No I would tell them, Lindisfarne, and spell it out!
The other I played last year by Elton John.
It's Elton's song, he wrote it with Bernie Taupin- but in one of those strange happenstances that occur now and then in our Music, I'll play a version of the song that came out just shortly BEFORE Elton's.
Just two songs about Going Home because I am only going to include 3 songs.
That's right, after 14 years I am finally going to play it...it was inevitable someday I would!
Unquestionably the most famous Rock & Roll song concerning Thanksgiving, the famous or infamous Alice's Restaurant makes it's first ever appearance on this Radio Show!
I haven't even heard it in a number of years, and I must admit it was fun to listen to after a long time away.
If you have never heard it, it is certainly unique- it was unique in 1967 and still is now.
So much so, I am doing what I rarely do, revealing what I am going to play before you listen- enabling you to stick around for it or tune out after the first two songs, lol!
ANY time of ANY day, there are dozens and dozens of thing to be Thankful for- just look around you...or look inside you!
One for me is Giving Thanks to all of you who take the time to listen to this weekly attempt to present Music in a sometimes quirky way, but always tries to appeal to your intellect.
Therefore, here is my Official Certificate Of Thanks to All.
And I wish you the Happiest Of Thanksgivings complete with loving family and friends!
