In 1848, Niagara Falls stops flowing for 30 hours due to an ice jam blocking the Niagara River in Buffalo, New York.

In 1886, the first batch of Coca Cola was brewed over a fire in a backyard in Atlanta, GA. Dr. John Pemberton created the concoction as a “hangover” cure and a stomach ache/headache remedy. He advertised it as a “brain tonic and intellectual beverage”. Cocaine was an ingredient of Coke until 1904 when Congress banned it. It went on sale to the public on May eighth that year.

In 1932, a vaudeville comedian made his radio debut with the words, “Ladies and gentlemen, this is Jack Benny talking. There will be a slight pause while you say, 'Who cares?”'

In 1954, “The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show” It was a foolproof formula. George was the straightman; Gracieʹs scatterbrained sense of logic and inability to match pronouns with their antecedents did the rest. Case in point: “Columbia Pictures Doing Burns and Allen Story.” The studio wants to make the coupleʹs life stories and sends a team of screenwriters to the house for background. Getting nowhere with Gracie (“Were you the oldest in the family?” they ask her. “No, no. My mother and father were much older”), they inquire about Georgeʹs old vaudeville partners. Announcer-pal Harry Von Zell, in all innocence, mentions Jimmy Pierce. “They worked together several months, then Pierce left George when he got married. George told me he has a wife and four sons in San Diego.” Thatʹs all Gracie has to hear. TV comedyʹs greatest broken-field runner is off to the races — certain George is a bigamist.

In 1957, Lonnie Donegan began his second US tour at New Yorkʹs Madison Square Garden. His hit, “Rock Island Line,” from the previous year, sold a reported 150,000 more copies within the following fortnight, eventually selling over a million copies.

In 1962, Jack Paar hosted NBCʹs “Tonight” show for the final time, paving the way for Johnny Carsonʹs arrival the following October.

Fill-in hosts were used, including one who would ultimately win the coveted position of host of “The Tonight Show”. He was Johnny Carson.

In 1969, R.C., “One Eye Open” by Maskman and The Agents peaked at #95 on the pop singles chart.

In 1973, after their single “The Cover Of Rolling Stone” was first played, Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show were actually pictured on the front of that particular magazine.

Inside, a “Rolling Stone” writer confirmed that members of the group (Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show) bought five copies of the mag for their moms, just like in the songʹs lyrics!

In 1973, At the suggestion of Aʹs owner Charlie Finley, orange-colored balls are used in an 11-5 exhibition game loss to the Indians. After Cleveland outfielder George Hendrick, who hit three home runs in the contest, claimes he had difficulty picking up the ball due to the lack of red seams on a white sphere, the concept is dropped.

In 1975, Dolly Partonʹs “The Bargain Store” topped the U.S. country chart even though it was banned by some radio stations for its supposedly suggestive lyrics. Were they too suggestive for even Dr. Demento to play it?

In 1975, R.C., Dolly Partonʹs “The Bargain Store” topped the U.S. country singles chart despite being banned by some radio stations for supposedly suggestive lyrics.

In 1978, “Carol Burnett Show Finale”, a 2-hr series wrapup of her 11-season series, aired on CBS. Arenʹt we glad we spent this time together?

In 1979, “Music Box Dancer” single by Frank Mills was certified Gold by the RIAA. Itʹs that blasted song that you hear on ice cream trucks nowadays instead of the one I can hear only on one of the Flintstones cartoon episodes where Fred and Barney battle each other over their children involved in the Most Beautiful Baby contest between Pebbles and Bamm Bamm. Letʹs get rid of that blasted song and bring back the tune I heard on The Flintstones!

In 1981, Sabrina Spellman (TV character portrayed by Melissa Joan Hart) was born according to an I.D. (purposely fake so she can mix in the mortal world) seen on her series “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch.”

In 1984, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. approved TV broadcasts in stereo. Still, watching all those reality shows in stereo just doesnʹt make them any better.

In 1984, “Somebodyʹs Watching Me” album and single by Rockwell both were certified Gold by the RIAA

In 1986, R.C., “Rock Me Amadeus” by Falco peaked at #1 on the pop singles chart, it was parodied into “Rock Me Jerry Lewis”.

In 1994, take a slightly neurotic stand up comedian, put in a great timeslot behind your networkʹs biggest hit, allow them to have silly conversations about sex (or “barking during the act” in the pilot) and you have…“These Friends Of Mine” (aka “Ellen”) starring everyoneʹs favorite heterosexual Ellen DeGeneres.
