On Thanksgiving Day, 1965, Arlo Guthrie, the son of noted folk singer Woodie Guthrie, visited a friend and her husband in Massachusetts . They needed to have their garbage taken out but the dump was closed. What happened after that is told in a way that is - well, classic and also hysterical.
For years, we listened to this on the way down to seeing my in laws for Thanksgiving (an almost three hour drive). Public radio still plays this every Thanksgiving.
In a way it's dated. But in a way, it's not. Is Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton dated? Listen and decide for yourself.
If you have 18 minutes to spare, I invite you to listen, to get a little taste of folk America.
Today is day 23 of NaBloPoMo.
