I have lived many places in the US. Does anyone know why this song is usually only played on this day? My hometown rock station always played it at 12 every year. KSHE 95 St. Louis. I've noticed many other cities play it too. Maybe at a different time, but still play it. My guess is it's too long for commercial radio and on holidays they gave the djs a pass back in the day. Like an extra break. Does anyone have any ideas or insight? "Except for Alice "of course. Lol ..Happy Thanksgiving to you all. This site has been to good to and for me. Thanks! Keep on pickin!!!
