Music Video Of The Day: Arlo Guthrie "Alice's Restaurant"

By Samantha Abernethy in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 22, 2012 9:00PM


Well what other song would we highlight today? Of course it's the Thanksgiving classic "Alice's Restaurant." If you don't know why it's a Thanksgiving classic, listen to WXRT's Lin Brehmer's explanation. The station plays the song every Thanksgiving at 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Since you apparently can't watch music videos on television anymore, we'll showcase one here daily. There's no rhyme or reason, time or season, to which video we'll choose. Have a suggestion? Contact Samantha Abernethy at
