It’s well established how much I love our Sonos speakers. Since we bought these last January music has filled our home in a way that it hasn’t for years. They are great to use with Pandora and also excellent with playlists I create on my iPhone. This week I worked on a playlist for Thanksgiving and it includes, of course, We Gather Together, the quintessential Thanksgiving hymn. It also consists of songs you might not associate with this holiday but that remind me of being home and with the ones I love. Songs like Ashoken Farewell, These Are the Days and Apron Strings.
Finally, it includes, as any hippie Thanksgiving playlist should, Alice’s Restaurant. You all know the story of the Thanksgiving Day Massacree, right? If you don’t go on and have a listen. I’ll be here waiting for the 18 minutes and 20 seconds it will take you.
Dale, doing his best Arlo Guthrie impersonation, will be waiting, too.
