This Day in History, September 10th

Break out the shovel and lets get digging through some history, today in 1419 John the Fearless was assassinated by followers of the future Charles VII of France, leading to dire consequences for the French. Abebe Bikila became the first sub-Saharan African to win a gold medal, a title he would later defend, winning the marathon in bare feet, and a contestant on the on the British version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? attempted to cheat his way to a million pound prize. Plus birthdays for Cynthia Lennon, Colin Firth, Danny Hutton of Three Dog Night, Carol Decker, and the Godfather of Neo-Soul Roy Ayers.

Today’s Track:
