It was 50 years ago, in 1965, when Arlo Guthrie took out the trash following a Thanksgiving dinner that “couldn’t be beat”. It started a chain of events including Arlo’s arrest for littering, court appearance, and rejection from military service depicted in his hilarious and iconic song, Alice’s Restaurant. The song (an 18 minute musical monologue) went platinum, spawned a full length motion picture, and became an American tradition ubiquitously played on hundreds of radio stations at Thanksgiving.
