Opening of the Metropolitan Opera House in NYC.
The first public radio broadcast aired a Met performance on Jan. 12, 1910. Weekly live Texaco-Metropolitan Opera Network broadcasts on the NBC Red Network began with Hansel and Gretel on Dec. 25, 1931 and have been heard ever since.
As always it’s all over the radio. Most of the songs are by Motown‘s songwriting locomotive Holland-Dozier-Holland. Songs include You Can’t Hurry Love and Baby I Need Your Loving. The well-seasoned Funk Brothers sound even more effortless than usual.
What will become the Seattle alt-rock band Pearl Jam plays its first official show as “Mookie Blaylock” at the Off Ramp club.
