This Day in History, March 19th

Taking the time-bus to History Town, on today’s date, The House of Commons in the UK passed an act abolishing the House of Lords, declaring it “useless and dangerous to the people of England” (sounds familiar!). Explorer Robert Cavelier de La Salle while looking for the mouth of the Mississippi River was killed by his own crew, who soon killed each other off in a series of retributions, and the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge failed to go to go to plan due to the interference of a uniformed fascist on horseback. Plus birthdays for Bruce Willis, Natalie Barr, Ricky Wilson of The B-52s, and Ruth Pointer.

Today’s Track:

The Pointer Sisters – Jump (For My Love)
