In 1970, Lynn Anderson was at #1 on the US Country charts with "Rose Garden". Written by Joe South, the song was also a major pop hit internationally, topping the charts in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, Norway and hitting the top three in the United Kingdom. Anderson's version of "Rose Garden" remains one of the most successful country crossover recordings of all-time.

In 1972, Following 36 years of publication, the last weekly issue of “LIFE” magazine hit the newsstands this day.

The first issue of the magazine featured a newborn baby and a doctor, with the heading, “LIFE Begins”. The magazine later became an occasional publication, then a monthly.
