On this day in 1865, April 9, Confederate general Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union general Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, ending the U.S. Civil War. General Grant then had the Union army's marching band play "Dixie" as a tribute to and out of respect for the defeated foe. Or maybe he was only being ironic?

Unhappy 4/10/70 - the Beatles break up

On this day in 1970, April 10, Paul McCartney announced, one week before the release of his first solo album, that the Beatles, the greatest rock and roll band ever, were no more.

Paul McCartney was announced that the Beatles were no more. That's almost 35 years ago, today in 1970. Also 26 years ago, tomorrow in 1978:

Dan Ingram was in a good mood that afternoon as he debuted the new weekly survey. He has some very good Ingram on liners on this aircheck. Dan does PSA for not using drugs during the late 70's. When disco came along, the advent of FM is becoming real by now. If you want to listen to it, here it is:

On this day in 1969, April 11, the Beatles issued "Get Back," backed with "Don't Let Me Down," in Britain, the first commerically available recording from the Get Back/Let It Be sessions. It was techincally not a "Beatles" single; it was credited to "The Beatles With Billy Preston."

On this day in 1969, April 14, John Lennon and Paul McCartney got together to record the Beatles single "The Ballad of John and Yoko." (Ringo was away filming a movie, and George was busy.) The song, documenting John and Yoko's honeymoon, was perfected in eleven takes.

On this day forty years ago (April 16, 1964), the Beatles recorded the title song to A Hard Day's Night in nine takes. Nine was John Lennon's lucky number - which makes sense, as "A Hard Day's Night" - the single, the album, the movie - were all big hits!

The movie came out 5 years later in 1982. I have the original Broadway cast on a record. The song "Tomorrow" was used during the Super Bowl commercial with the NFL players and coaches sang that rendition. Thanks to the NFL Network.

Oops! I forgot to go back to April 15th of 1962.:

The Osmonds making their first appearances in the episode called "Disneyland After Dark" as seen from the original "Wonderful World of Disney". During that show, Andy Williams' dad, Jay Williams saw that episode that he wanted to have a phone call from the Osmonds Family that they will be going to appear on "The Andy Williams Show". By December of 1962, The Osmonds making their TV debut on the "Andy Williams Show".

Default 25 Years Ago Today

WABC was in ratings trouble_at least by its own standard of always being #1. FM had been endoring the AM music audience for several years but it was the disco fad that pushed the radio station ahead of WABC. The FM station that accomplished it was WKTU (92.3 later moved the dial to 103.5 in 1995). "Disco 92" was an overnight sensation and WABC took it hard. There was a great deal of debate about what to do but the sales department was not happy trying to sell the station now it wasn't on top. Against the wishes of programming staff, the station was shifted towards disco in a bit of knee jerk reaction to the ratings. That's what WABC did played disco which it struggled in the ratings against FM's KTU. To hear this, go to this link:

Ron Lundy ending his show before Dan Ingram joins the show on WABC that the temperature was 66 WABC degrees and it wasn't. The station was trying to make fun of WNBC, another radio station in New York City. Here is that moment.

On this day in 1969, May 5, Capitol released the Beatles single "Get back," coupled with "Don't Let Me Down," in the United States. It was the first Beatles single to be released in America in stereo. (The "Get Back" single had been released a month earlier in Britain, but in mono.) As with the British pressing, the U.S. pressing gave extra credit to Billy Preston.
