This day in music.

1942, 'Chattanooga Choo Choo' by Glenn Miller and his Orchestra became the first recording to be awarded a Gold record. It was actually just a master copy of the disc sprayed with gold lacquer by RCA as a publicity stunt. The actual award recognized today as a Gold Record would not be initiated for another sixteen years when the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) borrowed the idea and trademarked the Gold Record. The first Gold single was awarded to Perry Como in 1958 for 'Catch A Falling Star' and the first Gold album was given to Gordon McRae for the soundtrack to 'Oklahoma'.



1973, Elton John had his first UK No.1 album when 'Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player' started a six-week run at the top of the charts.



1979, Rod Stewart started a four week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with 'Da Ya Think I'm Sexy', his third US No.1. (and a No.1 hit in the UK). Also today Rod started a three-week run at No.1 on the US album chart with 'Blondes Have More Fun.'



Born on this day.

1937, Born on this day, Don Wilson, guitarist with The Ventures who had the 1960 UK No.4 single 'Perfidia', and the 1960 US No.2 single 'Walk Don't Run'.



1962, Born on this day, Cliff Burton bass player with Metallica. Burton was killed on September 27th 1987, when the band's tour bus crashed as it was travelling between Stockholm and Copenhagen. He was found crushed to death under the bus.

Hey, Doc W! This weather is crazy warm! Our almond tree is popping with pink blossoms and the birds are going crazy around here. It was in the high 70's yesterday...78 I think. At least it's a little cooler today. I was gonna post pics of our beautiful weather but didn't want to rub it in for Aces or Strat. giggle

I remember the hype leading up to MTV on the radio...was watching when they opened with "Video Killed the Radio Star" by the Buggles. It was the same day I ran over my big toe with an old beast of a vacuum cleaner and maimed my toenail.  giggle

MTV is currently a mess of mind-numbing programming devised to serve the up and coming masses who will one day be in control of this planet.  But it is only one little drop in a very big ocean of control.

Speaking of Dire Straits...  drink

Just a wee bit... giggle

I started getting into music in the mid to late '70s, although music has no exclusive timeline...that's one of the great things about it. The universal language. yeah
