Today in history and it’s a big one:

Music History:

Going way back:

1910 Louis Prima, American musician born in New Orleans, Louisiana (d. 1978)

1967 Otis Redding records “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay”

40 years ago on December 3rd, 1979, The Who held a concert in Cincinnati, Ohio.

“That 1979 performance by the Who was at Riverfront Coliseum, now called the Heritage Bank Center, as part of the band’s world tour, which had begun that September. It was a sold-out show, with the majority of the more than 18,000 tickets sold as unassigned or general-assignment seating. According to news reports at the time, the doors were expected to open at 7 p.m., and thousands of people outside grew restless when they heard members of The Who performing their sound check.

People at the back of the crowd pushed forward after a few doors were opened to let in the surging mass of concertgoers. Those in front were trapped, unable to escape the crush of bodies behind them. Along with the 11 who died, more than two dozen people reported injuries.

NYT:

No one ever told The Who about the deaths until after their performance.

This week, The Who announced it would return to Cincinnati in April for its first concert there since the tragic incident.

The best thing to come out of Ohio, (besides some really good cookware, well, until the company sold their souls, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and members of the News Views Community who hail from Ohio) was…WKRP in Cincinnati.

Below is their take on the tragic event that occurred 40 years ago December 3, 1979.

I’m a little late on this episode but it never gets old. I remember laughing my ass off as a kid watching this episode:

Enjoy the weekend, everyone! Be safe.

I’m hooked on watching reruns of WKRP. Sorry for the ads in the video but Dailymotion had the best quality. One more just because….
