In 1904, Thomas “Fats” Waller is born in New York City. The 1970s Broadway musical “Ainʹt Misbehavin'” is based on him. Wallerʹs first hit, “Ainʹt Misbehavin',” appeared in the Broadway musical “Hot Chocolates” and is inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

In 1963, Little Stevie Wonder who turned 13, just eight days ago, records his second album. “The Twelve Year-Old genius,” live at a Detroit ballroom at Chicagoʹs Regal Theatre. One tune off the album, “Fingertips, Part Two,” will become Wonderʹs first hit, topping both the R&B and the pop charts.

In 1966, R.C., “Downtown” by Mrs. Miller peaked at #82 on the pop singles chart; it was a parody version of Petula Clarkʹs #1 hit in 1965.

In 1966, R.C., “Louie Louie” by The Kingsmen reentered the chart and peaked at #97 on the pop singles chart.

In 1969, “The Best Of Bill Cosby” album by Bill Cosby was released

In 1973, The sensual, “Pillow Talk”, by Sylvia (Sylvia Vanderpool), earned a gold record by the RIAA on this day. The artist first recorded with Hot Lips Page for Columbia Records back in 1950 and was known as Little Sylvia. She was half of the singing duo Mickey and Sylvia, who recorded “Love Is Strange” in 1957. “Pillow Talk” was her only solo major hit and made it to number three on the pop music charts. You may be wondering what Sylvia did with that gold record. She slipped it under her pillow and talked to it night after night…

In 1980, “The Empire Strikes Back,” the second part of the second triology of Star Wars (hence Part V), opened in movie theaters in the U.S.A.

In 1981, “Taxi” Poor Latka — sick and tired of being the lovable, but lonely, grease monkey at the Sunshine Cab Company. All he wants is to become “an American fun guy taking each day in high gear” — which for him would require inventing a whole new type of transmission. And thatʹs just what he does. Laden with copies of Playboy and a tape of a smooth-talking FM DJ, Latka (Andy Kaufman) goes off “to alter my lifestyle to fit the fast lane.” He returns with a flashy new lounge-lizard alter ego: Vic Ferrari — slick, suave, oversexed, and beyond obnoxious. Showing off Kaufmanʹs genius for utilizing multiple personalities (Latka started out as Foreign Man, one of Kaufmanʹs uncanny comedy-club guises), “Latka the Playboy” was an inventive, outrageous episode that led to equally imaginative sequels — and even more splintering of Latkaʹs breakaway ego. Sharp-eyed viewers will notice a pre-Cheers George Wendt in a bit part as an exterminator in this wonderful episode.

In 1983, On the cover of TV Guide: “Bob Hope”. Other Articles: Tracy Nelson, Robert Duvall

In 1983, R.C., “Bang The Drum All Day” by Todd Rundgren peaked at #63 on the pop singles chart.

In 1987, NBC launches a comedy/drama chronicling the perils of being a sexually active single gal in her thirties. And even though tonightʹs debut of “The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd” explains “why cosmetics should come in unbreakable bottles,” the show never quite catches on at the Peacock network. Maybe if sheʹd fantasized about a dancing baby…

In 1988, D.J. Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince make their chart debut.

In 1988, R.C., “DaʹButt” by E.U. peaked at #35 on the pop singles chart.

In 1988, R.C., “Fat” by “Weird Al” Yankovic peaked at #99 on the pop singles chart; it was a parody of Michael Jacksonʹs “Bad”

In 1990, “Newhartʹs Final Episode” Japanese speculators had bought up a rustic Vermont village, lock, stock, and cracker barrel — all except for stubborn holdout Dick Loudon (Bob Newhart), whose Stratford Inn was left sitting forlornly on the 14th fairway of a golf resort. When Dickʹs flaky old staff and former neighbors, now all millionaires, show up for a reunion, Dick can take it no more. “Iʹve got to get out of this madhouse,” he splutters. Throwing open the front door, he is hit by a golf ball and slides to the ground. Cut to a pajama-clad Dick in bed, saying, “Honey, wake up. You wonʹt believe the dream I just had.” Whoa, weʹre not in Vermont anymore. Thatʹs the Chicago apartment of mild-mannered psychologist Bob Hartley, and the woman in bed next to him is Emily (Suzanne Pleshette). Weʹre not only in an alternate reality — weʹre in a whole different series (the comicʹs previous sitcom, The Bob Newhart Show). As Bob explains his eight-year dream, Emily, in that deep, smoky voice, says, “That settles it — no more Japanese food before you go to bed.” Unquestionably, the cleverest sitcom finale in TV history.

In 1992, How do you say good-bye to a legend? Yes, thereʹd be another show the next night, but that was to be one of The Tonight Showʹs patented reeling-through-the-years retrospectives. So this was really Johnnyʹs swan song. And what a chanteuse he got to sing it! Suitably dressed in black, Bette Midler crooned “You Made Me Love You” with lyrics adapted to the occasion. When she began “Hereʹs That Rainy Day” — a Carson favorite — Johnny joined in and the two, faces inches apart, warbled a sweet impromptu duet. Then, perched on a stool, Midler said, “I canʹt believe it, the last guest, the last fool Mr. Carson will have to suffer gladly.” She swung into the Johnny Mercer-Harold Arlen standard “One for My Baby (And One More for the Road),” again tailoring the lyrics (“Well, thatʹs how it goes/And, John, I know youʹre getting anxious to close”). Carson, a closeup on him now, sniffed and wiped away a tear. Song done, Midler ran over and placed a red lei around his neck. And at the end, after nearly 30 years of always having something smart and funny to say, Johnny Carson was left speechless. WITNESS: “John is not the kind of guy who shows his emotions, especially on the air,” recalls Ed McMahon, Carsonʹs sidekick for 30 years on The Tonight Show. “But that night he almost totally lost it. Betteʹs performance was filled with obvious admiration and most assuredly love.”

In 1992, “The Real World” TV Show debut on MTV, marking the beginning of the decline of quality scripted television.

In 1997, Soap diva Susan Lucci goes to zero for 17 as she lost yet another Daytime Emmy Best Actress nomination. She would not lose the following year because she wasnʹt nominated that year.

In 1999, This is a day that will live in triumph (and weʹre not talking about a sock puppet dog on Conanʹs late night show for that matter)! A longtime losing streak finally ended! After 18 winless nominations, Susan Lucci, famous for her longtime character Erica Kane on All My Children, finally won that elisive Emmy award as Best Soap Actress. Experts had said this year was one of Lucciʹs best chances to break her soap-opera losing streak, with a stellar performance during a hospital vigil over Kaneʹs anorexic daughter. The televised ceremonyʹs audience jumped to its feet Friday night when Lucciʹs name was called, and the crowd howled in protest when producers tried to cut off her acceptance speech. Lucci says she has a place on her mantel for the trophy. She sobbed as she received a standing ovation. “Thank you very much. I truly never believed that this would happen,” she said. Lucciʹs long-sought victory overshadowed a record-setting performance by “General Hospital,” which won eight awards. Rosie OʹDonnell swept the major talk show awards.

In 1999, “Trekkies” opened in movie theaters in the U.S.A.

In 2009, The letter “I” on the Big Mac Land sign at Busch Stadium is knocked out by Albert Pujolsʹs first-inning blast off Sean Marshall in the Cardinalsʹ 3-1 victory over Chicago. During any game, if a Cardinal player hits a home run into Big Mac Land, built in the left field stands (section 272) as a tribute to Mark McGwire, everyone at the game is entitled to redeem their ticket for a free Big Mac at all participating restaurants in the fast food chain.

In 2017, The Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus received its final standing ovation as it performed its last show at the Nassau County Coliseum in Uniondale, New York, ending a 146-year run.
