In 1893, Inventor Thomas A. Edison completed work on the worldʹs first motion picture studio, his “Black Maria,” in West Orange, New Jersey.

In 1902, 02 x 01 = 02

In 1949, RCA Victor countered Columbia Recordsʹ 33⅓ 'long play' phonograph disk on this day, with not only a smaller, seven-inch record (with a big hole in the center), but an entire phonograph playing system, as well. Soon, the newfangled product, which started a revolution (especially with the new rock and roll music) soon made the 78-rpm record a 'blast from the past'. The 45-rpm disk did well for about 20 years. Then it started to lose ground to cassette tapes, eight tracks and albums. Record companies, caught in the energy crisis of the early and mid-70s, found that it was cost prohibitive to keep turning out the little disks. So, they raised the price to where no one would buy them anymore. Then eight tracks died, albums, too — and now we have compact discs that cost more than both of them combined — and cassettes that sometimes sound worse than the 45s they replaced…Those Were the Days.

In 1956, The “Disneyland” TV show features “A Day in the Life of Donald Duck”.

In 1958, TOPPING THE SOUL CHARTS SILHOUETTES and “GET A JOB” [starting a four-week run at number one]

In 1962, The Ken Kesey novel “One Flew Over the Cuckooʹs Nest” was first published by Viking Press.

In 1964, Indiana Governor Matthew Welsh declares The Kingsmenʹs “Louie, Louie” to be “pornographic” and calls for its ban. The FCC investigates, in the end concluding the songʹs lyrics to be “unintelligible at any speed”. The record sold more copies than ever.

In 1964, R.C., “I Want To Hold Your Hand” by The Beatles peaked at number one on the pop singles chart and stayed there for seven weeks. A parody that came out was “I Wanna Bite Your Hand”. This marked the start of 14 consecutive weeks that a BEATLES tune will top the charts. After seven weeks “HAND” is followed by “SHE LOVES YOU” for two, and “CANʹT BUY ME LOVE” for five more.

In 1974, Dy-no-mite! Florida now has her own show! Jimmie Walker brings a new catch phrase to television as the irrepressible J.J. on Norman Learʹs housing project-based CBS sitcom, “Good Times.” John Amos and Esther Rolle also star. “Good Times” was a spinoff from “Maude”, which in turn was a spinoff of “All in the Family”), and the first spin-off of a spin-off in TV history. Walker didnt actually utter the catchphrase “Dy-No-Mite” until the second show of the series, aired on February 8.

In 1982, “Late Night With David Letterman”, TV Talk Show, debut on NBC where it stayed for 11 years.

The show featured Stupid Pet Tricks, Top Ten Lists, Viewer Mail, Larry “Bud” Melman, Manny the Hippie, The Peacock Ladies, and a whole lot more wacky, offbeat, weird and bizarre stuff. Bill Murray gets “Physical” on the very first of 1,809 episodes for the National Broadcasting Corporation. “Bill wanted to do something special, so he was coming down early to talk to the writers and see what they could come up with together,” Letterman later recalled. “When he arrived, Merrill and I were out filming a segment, and Bill showed up with about six gallons of whatever tequila was on sale. When we got back, everybody was s***-faced, and it was dark, since Bill had decided the flourescent lights were leeching Vitamin E from them and heʹd hidden all the lamps. Nothing was written, and the only explanation I could get from anyone was, 'Bill was here.' When we did get on the air, Bill decided not to do any of the stuff weʹd written and got an urge to sing 'Letʹs Get Physical' and do aerobics. So he did.”

In 1984, “Thriller” single by Michael Jackson was released.

In 1985, Glenn Frey makes his acting debut playing a pilot in a Miami Vice episode based on his song “Smugglerʹs Blues.”
