Tkinter listener thread?

I have a Python UDP listener socket that waits for incoming data. The
socket runs as an endless loop. I would like to pop the incoming data
into an existing Tkinter app that I have created. What's the
easiest/most efficient way of handling this? Would I create a separate
thread that has the listener set a certain Tkinter variable if there is
incoming data? Any suggestions would be tremendously appreciated :-)
