I want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving, and that all of you enjoy the day with lots of turkey, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie.
For me, it's always been a day of traditions. Lots of football, from Detroit and Dallas, the parade in Manhattan, where the Christmas season officially begins when Santa Claus comes riding down at the end. (Good luck to my friend John Pizzarelli, who is on a float in the parade this year.) And two others, that are both special to me:
Thankfully, ABC is broadcasting this wonderful special, "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving," tonight at 8.
And at noon on Q104.3 FM here in New York, Arlo Guthrie sings about the "Massacre":
It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without Arlo at Alice's Restaurant, or the Peanuts gang.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Especially those who put their lives on the line every day to make sure we live in freedom. God bless you all. And thanks.
