This Day in History, December 11th

Sifting the sands of time, we find today Chinese Emperor Xian was abdicate the throne, ending the Han dynasty, by the son of a warlord who’d been the real power behind the throne anyway. King Louis XVI of France went on trial for treason and shortly thereafter lost his head, and a dark day in recent Australian history with the Cronulla riots taking place on this day in 2005. Plus birthdays for John Kerry, Hamish Blake, Big Mama Thornton, Jermaine Jackson, and Little Miss Dynamite, country star Brenda Lee!

Today’s Tracks:

The Jackson 5 – I Want You Back

Brenda Lee – Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
