Happy Frigid Friday! Or at least that’s what I’m calling it since this morning was arguably near freezing. Wherefore art thou summer? But nothing warms you up quite like your weekly fix of music history, am I right? Of course I am. In honor of this being the month of ghosts and ghouls it seems to be quite […]

At the risk of talking about The Beatles way too much in my TGI Friday music history posts, I’m going to go ahead and do it again. I mean, what better way is there to kick off the weekend really? Today, in 1962, The Beatles first single on the Parlophone label “Love Me Do”, backed by “P.S. […]

Good morning and happy final Friday in September. But just because September is ending, fall is just beginning, somewhat like the career if the Beatles on this day in 1963. Famous New York deejay, Murray the K knew little of the stir he was about to cause when he received a copy of the Beatles’ “She Loves You”. […]

The day is young and the fall is fresh so what better time for your weekly music history update! On this particular day in 1968, Jimi Hendrix released his spiced-up version of the Bob Dylan track “All Along the Watchtower”. Dylan reportedly liked the revamp of his acoustic track. But who wouldn’t, c’mon, it’s Hendrix. This fall Dylan […]

What’s interesting about a Friday morning in early September? Your weekly fix of music history, that’s what. Twenty-eight years ago in 1984, MTV introduced their now annual award show, the MTV Video Music Awards. Bette Midler and Dan Aykroyd, one of the original cast members of SNL, co-hosted the show. This original broadcast of the […]

Good morning and happy Friday! The final TGIF for August of 2012. For some people Friday is payday and this Friday specifically back in 1969 was payday for a certain man named Bob Dylan. On Friday August 31, 1969 Bob Dylan made his first paid appearance since his near fatal motorcycle accident near his home […]

Just because summer is almost over doesn’t mean it’s time to start singing the blues. Unless of course ‘the blues’ refers to the color blue, the shade of indigo to be more specific. On this day August 17th in 1989, the Indigo Girls’ self-titled debut album featuring the hit “Closer To Fine” reigned supreme as a Top 30 […]

Happy Friday August 10th! Summer is sadly beginning to fade, but fear not – the good tunes and music history tidbits shall not! On this particular day back in 1985, the King of Pop made what we might call a slight faux pas in regards to his friendship with a lad from Liverpool, Paul McCartney. […]

Florence Welch might be singing that the dog days are over but for fans of the King back in 1956, the dog days had just begun. On August 3, 1956 Elvis Presley released one of his most famous tracks, a cover of “Big Mama” Thorton’s “Hound Dog”. Presley infamously sang the song on The Steve […]
