One of the local radio stations for 25+ years, at noon on Thanksgiving, play Alice's Restaurant. I've been tuning in for about 10 years or so. Whether or whatever I'm doing is put on hold so I can listen.
For the first time this year, I heard the song, and it came on during Thanksgiving day at noon as well (and replayed at 6 pm). Don't know how long they have been doing it. This local classic rock station is not my favorite and I only caught it because I was flipping through the station.
