In 1972, Hank Aaron signed a contract with the Atlanta Braves that made him the first player to receive $200,000 a year. In 1971 Aaron hit .327 with a career-high 47 home runs. With 639 homers, “Hammerin' Hank” was close to breaking the Babeʹs record of 714. In 1947, Hank Greenberg became the first player to make six figures, signing a $100,000 deal to play for the Pirates.

In 1972, Karen and Richard Carpenter of Downey, California, received a gold record for the hit single “Hurting Each Other”. When they tore the golden platter from its protective frame and plunked it on the player, they heard, “Hurt So Bad”, by Little Anthony and the Imperials. They were so upset by this that they ran out to the back yard and used the record as a Frisbee for the rest of the day. (Some of the preceding is based upon actual fact.)

In 1976, Michael Nesmith of The Monkees married Kathryn Bild. They divorced in 1988.

In 1976, Who Wants to Be Touched By Carl Reiner? One lucky person each week gets to be touched by Carl Reiner in “Good Heavens,” a lightweight and lighthearted comedy in which God smiles upon one of his faithful each episode and has dispatches a Mr. Angel to grant the person one wish for anything (except money). Executive producer Reiner might have wished for more viewers, as the show is off the ABC schedule in less than four months.
