I Love Rock And Roll by The Arrows Joan Jett first heard this song when she was touring England with The Runaways in 1976. She recorded a version with 2 members of The Sex Pistols in 1979, but it was her rerecording of it with The Blackhearts released in 1982 that finally put the song on the charts. The record label that The Arrows belonged to didn't promote the song, so it remained in relative obscurity until Joan recorded it, the second time. It still seems weird to hear a male version, although this is the original.

Boston Molasses Disaster 1919 On January 15, 1919, one of the strangest disasters in American history killed 21 people in Boston. A enormous holding tank belonging to the Purity Distilling Company containing 2.3 million gallons of molasses burst under pressure. (Molasses was a common sweetener of the era; it could also be distilled into alcohol.) A tidal wave of the sticky goo anywhere from 8 to 15 feet high swept over the neighbourhood moving at an estimated speed of 35 mph. The force of the wave collapsed buildings and part of the elevated railway system. Some victims died in the wreckage of crushed buildings. Others simply drowned in the thick goo. The holding tank was certainly defective and Purity Distilling was found criminally liable, but the exact cause of the catastrophe was never ascertained.

Gabriel Melgar - Replacement Chico Chico and the Man was a hit sitcom for NBC in the mid-1970s. Starring Freddie Prinze and Jack Albertson, the show debuted in 1974 and centered on the relationship between crusty, aging widower Ed Brown (a "seventh-generation WASP" whose garage was the last white-owned business in his Los Angeles neighborhood) and his Mexican-American employee Francisco (Chico) Rodriguez. Chico and The Man was a regular fixture in the top 10 until Prinze's shocking suicide at age 22 in January 1977. Enough shows with Prinze had been made in advance to last several weeks. The remaining episodes of the 1976-77 season focused on minor cast members. Common sense dictated that NBC should cancel the show, but instead a revamped Chico and the Man debuted in the fall of 1977. Twelve-year-old Gabriel Melgar was cast as illegal-immigrant orphan Raul Garcia who had stowed away in Ed Brown's car when he was returning from a fishing trip to Mexico. Brown referred to Raul as "Chico," explaining to the boy, "You're all Chicos to me!" Prinze's character was said to be visiting relatives in Mexico. However, in one episode Raul finds Chico's belongings in a closet and starts to play his guitar. Ed has an emotional meltdown, smashes the guitar, and eventually explains to Raul that Chico had died. Ratings for the revised version of Chico and the Man were terrible, so the show was axed at the end of the 1977-78 season. Melgar didn't do much in showbiz after the cancellation of Chico and the Man. He appeared in one episode of CHiPs, one episode of Love Boat, and he had a role in a forgettable 1979 action flick titled Jaguar Lives--and that was it. According to one fansite, Melgar is now employed in the biomedical field.

Agatha Christie 1926 Disappearance The greatest mystery created by Agatha Christie wasn't in the plot of one of her novels. It was her odd 11-day disappearance in 1926 that has never been adequately explained. On December 3, 1926, the famous 36-year-old mystery novelist vanished from her home. Her car was found a short distance away. Inside it were some scattered personal belongings. Police initially feared Christie had committed suicide by drowning herself in a nearby natural pool. Others suspected she had been murdered by her philandering husband Roger. At one point some 15,000 volunteers were looking for her. Then, on December 14, Christie turned up safe and sound at a nearby spa/hotel where she had checked in under an assumed name. Several guests at the spa had recognized Christie from her newspaper photos, but she cheerfully denied being the missing author. Eventually a hotel employee summoned police who notified Mr. Christie. The couple went into seclusion for several weeks. Agatha had been suffering from depression following the death of her mother earlier that year. Her husband's barely concealed affair probably added to her mental strain. What was behind the 11-day absence? Some Christie fans think it was a publicity stunt or a form of revenge against Roger. Psychologists, however, theorize that the stressed Christie may have been in a 'fugue state'--a rare form of out-of-body amnesia where she could not recognize herself. Christie (shown here in a 1967 photo) lived until 1976, but she always refused to discuss her strange 1926 disappearance; her autobiography makes no mention of it. She and Roger divorced in 1928.

Can You Figure Out Who this Voice Belongs to After beginning his television career in the 1960’s with many a guest spot, along with the occasional film role, this mystery “singer” received his big claim to fame as – technically - the second banana in a (mostly) 1970’s TV series which ran for seven seasons. Now, as to his singing ability….. Wow-! Almost makes one long for the scintillating song stylings of Telly Savalas.

Gerry Cheevers One of hockey's most identifiable goalie masks belonged to Gerry Cheevers of the Boston Bruins. His make-believe 'stitches' were a statement: They represented the real stitches that would have scarred Cheevers' face had he not worn the mask. Every time a puck struck Cheevers' mask, Boston's trainer Frosty Forrestall would add another row of stitches to it.
