Flashback Friday: This day in history...

On this day in history....

In 1907, the 1st radio broadcast of a musical composition aired.


n 1936 Dean Stockwell (actor, Quantum Leap; Blue Velvet) was born.


In 1955 Elvis Presley made his first TV appearance on the "Louisiana Hayride" show.


In 1958 Andy Gibb (singer) was born in Manchester, England.


And in 1984, William Powell (actor, My Man Godfrey) died at age 91 years old.


Edna: And you all thought this was just a regular old Friday!

Lets see if this comment works. I love your Flashback Friday. I have Bob Hope on my blog.

Well I remember all of these and I absolutely love Elvis and Andy Gibb. Now have you taught the Margiedales to move like Elvis?

Dean Stockwell is underappreciated except by folks (basement not required) with good taste. Along with the great entertainment you list, he is also quite good in Battlestar Galactica.

Edna: Grampy, I loved your post on Bob Hope! He's a real favorite here in the Basement. :)

Poetic Shutterbug, my sister has two left feet so she's in no position to be teaching dancing to anyone.

wngl, Dean Stockwell is also a favorite here in the Basement. I particularly liked him in Quantum Leap, but am often surprised when I catch him in older movies. I have never watched the new Battlestar Galactica so I will take your word for it.
