Thanksgiving Day has some great traditions, like food, family, football, the Macy's parade, and Arlo Guthrie's Thanksgiving Classic, "Alice's Restaurant."  I-95 will play "Alice" three times on Thanksgiving Day- at 10 AM, Noon, and 3 PM.

"Alice's Restaurant" made Arlo Guthrie a superstar in the late 1960s.  The song tells the true stories of Arlo's littering arrest in Stockbridge, Massachusetts on Thanksgiving Day in 1965, and his subsequent banishment to the "Group W Bench" when he went to register for the Draft.

You can hear the entire Thanksgiving-related Classic three times this Thursday: at 10 am, noon and 3 pm.  Why three times?  Over the years we have found that our Thanksgiving Day listening is varied much more than usual based our listeners' many different family meals, high school football games, etc.  So, no matter what time we played it we were getting requests to play it again.  Over the years we decided to just let it rip thee times and a tradition was born!  Pull up a chair at the Restaurant this Thursday, and bring your "27 8x10 colored glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one." We'll be ready for you!

Camping for Cans 2021 Photo Album

Camping for Cans is our annual food/cash drive to benefit the Hillside Food Outreach. Hillside is an organization that feeds those in need all throughout the Greater-Danbury area. For years, I-95 has teamed up with them to get the word out about the needs of our neighbors in the area. 2021 was a smash hit and we raised thousands of dollars and truck loads of food with Hillside and our corporate sponsors. These were some of the many faces that joined us over the weekend (11/19-11/21).
