In 1830, “Mary Had A Little Lamb”, Thomas Edisonʹs future first #1 recording, was first written.

In 1924, R.C., “California Here I Come!” hits number one on the pop singles chart by Al Jolson.

In 1941, Musician-poet-figurehead of the 1960s generation, Bob Dylan (Robert Zimmerman), was born in Duluth, Minnesota. His biggest hit was “Like a Rolling Stone,” a number two song in 1965. Three of his albums topped Billboardʹs album chart in the 1970s: “Planet Waves,” “Blood on the Tracks” and “Desire.” He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and received a Lifetime Achievement Grammy in 1991.

In 1941, The German battleship “Bismarck” sank the British dreadnought “Hood” in the North Atlantic during World War II, with the loss of 1,300 lives.

In 1949, Spike Jones and His City Slickers recorded “Riders in the Sky”

In 1964, “The Patty Duke Show.” This episode re-creates the first meeting between those “identical cousins” Patty and Cathy Lane, in which cultured Cathy gets her Uncle Martin (William Schallert) fired from his job as managing editor of the New York Daily Chronicle and breaks up Pattyʹs romance with Richard (Eddie Applegate) — all before the second commercial. This frothy family comedy boasted good writing and clever camera work, but its real distinction was Patty Dukeʹs extraordinary dual performance — never more noticeable than in “The Cousins,” in which she plays Cathy imitating Patty and vice versa. You can lose your mind when cousins are two of a kind.

In 1974, After nine years on TV, the last “Dean Martin Show” was seen on NBC. Deanʹs lovely group, The Golddiggers returned to bid farewell in the show that had been seen in a variety of formats on Thursday and, later, on Friday evenings.

In 1986, A “drunk” Billy Martin is “fired” as the co-host of Saturday Night Live by executive producer Lorne Michaels after slurring his lines during a skit. In retaliation, the often-unemployed Yankee manager “sets fire” to his dressing room at the end of the show, which is the season finale.

In 1988, John Moschitta set the Guinness World Record for fast talking: 586 words per minute.
