In 0942, The Benedictine monk who named the notes of the scale “A” to “G” died. “Odo,” as he was known, wrote a musical textbook. It begins with a foreward that says his brothers told him to keep it simple so anyone could understand the rules. I guess he couldnʹt come up with a note system that would let him count from “A” to “Z”?

In 1980, (not 1979, date provided by RIAA) The eponymous debut album by Athens, Georgia, quintet, the B-52s was certified gold. The group is indirectly responsible for John Lennonʹs return to music later in the year: when Lennon hears the B-52's, he realizes the time is right.

In 1980, The country-variety TV series, Barbara Mandrell and the Mandrell Sisters was aired for the first time. Barbara Mandrell hosted this music-variety series with her younger sisters, Louise and Irelene. Also helping out was Truck Shackley & the Texas Critters, a group of Krofft puppets that included five musicians and a dog. Each week, a well-established country star made appearances.

In 1980, “Barbara Mandrell And The Mandrell Sisters” debuts on NBC-TV, with guests Dolly Parton and John Schneider. Parton sings “9 To 5” and duets with Mandrell on The Beatlesʹ “Canʹt Buy Me Love.”

In 1980, “Heavenʹs Gate” opened and closed as an unqualified movie disaster.

In 1982, “Fonz and The Happy Days Gang”, TV Cartoon Show; last aired on ABC.

In 1989, At the Nick At Nite exposition in San Diego, D.T. meets Mr. Ed (or a replica to be exact) and star Alan Young. He forgot to ask Alan about the backwards Mr. Ed theme song controversy which had allegedly had satanac messages when played backwards.

In 1992, On the “Seinfeld” episode “The Contest”, they all do it, but itʹs Georgeʹs eternally sour fate to be caught at it, by his own mother, “treating his body like it was an amusement park” (as she puts it), facilitated by a copy of Glamour magazine. The experience propelled his mom into the hospital, and a quasi-remorseful George swore he will never, ever do “that” again. When Jerry, Kramer and Elaine suggest they could easily resist pleasuring themselves longer than he can, a bet is made: $100 each ($150 for Elaine because women are different); honor system in operation, abstainer gets the pot. The first challenge appears almost immediately: a woman walking around naked in the apartment across the way. As Jerry and George gawk, Kramer departs quietly for his own pad. Exactly 52 seconds later, Jerryʹs door swings open, and in one fluid motion Kramer steps into the kitchen, windmills his arm, slaps a stack of bills onto the counter and creates one of the most memorable and ribald moments in TV comedy history with a sheepish look and just two words: “Iʹm out.”

In 1994, Cab Calloway dies in a Delaware nursing home. He was 86. The big band leader never recovered from a stroke he suffered June 12 at his home. He is probably best known for his trademark “hi-de-ho” song “Minnie the Moocher.” He was also featured in the movie “The Blues Brothers.” In October he was honored at a White House ceremony by President Clinton for his contribution to the arts.

In 1994, On “Late Night with Conan OʹBrien,” although “President Bill Clinton” is the showʹs “Clutch Cargo” satellite hookup, unfortunately his brother Roger Clinton is the real thing.

Rumor has it that David Tanny is the real father, but that has yet to be proven. It could have been another David instead…Crosby!

In 1998, “The Powerpuff Girls” TV cartoon premiered on Cartoon Network.
