Laurence Owen US Figure Skating Champion 1961 Earlier I posted the Sports Illustrated cover photo of 16-year-old Laurence Owen. Here she is winning the 1961 U.S. championship in Colorado Springs on January 25, 1961--three weeks before she (and the rest of the U.S. team) were killed in a plane crash in Belgium. This was the first time the U.S. Figure Skating Championships were broadcast on network television. (Miss Owen's first name is misspelled on the TV graphic.) Yes, that is the familiar voice of Dick Button providing the commentary--back in 1961!

Diana Ross is The Boss 1979 a television commercial for the 1979 Diana Ross album "The Boss". Despite the title she thankfully did not try to cover Bruce Springsteen songs.

MECO - Close Encounters: Disco Theme (1977) Remember Meco? He was selling records by the truckload in the 1970s. This successful disco dance composer, American music producer Domenico Monardo made his mark in the business by creating highly popular strings of LP's and 45's; all in the middle of the 1970s with many film titles as his source of inspiration. Domenico had the opportunity working with Gloria Gaynor on an array of songs in the early 70s with a production company he had help create."Never Can Say Goodbye" was the 1st time a whole album would include non-stoppable dance beats set on a vinyl recording. Remember Donna Summer? She imitated this too. It wasn't Meco's recorded idea though. He was just a part of it at the time. He continued working with Gaynor in that time as well as briefly getting involved with Diana Ross. This time is was as a studio session musician. With the movies, turns out that he was just a fan of them like you. He was really impressed with the "Star Wars" movie soundtrack. He loved the film so much that he wanted to be a part of it. This version of John Williams "Close Encounters" theme was released in the later half of 1977 on an LP called by Meco called 'Encounters Of Every Kind,' from which the 45 single was played on AM radio for weeks after. Meco continued on with the "dance version" of movie compositions right through the early 1980s. He did among others, "Superman," "The Wizard of Oz," "Star Trek," and was especially known for getting his John Williams disco version of "Star Wars" played on radio waves worldwide. The album that sold bigger than the film soundtrack was entitled "Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk." *E*

Boxing Day - Commonwealth Nations From Wiki: Boxing Day was traditionally a day on which the servants had a day off from their duties. Because of this the gentry would eat cold cuts and have a buffet-style feast prepared by the servants in advance. In modern times many families will still follow this tradition by eating a family-style buffet lunch, with cold cuts rather than a full cooked meal. It is a time for family, parlour games and sports in the UK. The traditional recorded celebration of Boxing Day has long included giving money and other gifts to those who were needy and in service positions. The European tradition has been dated to the Middle Ages, but the exact origin is unknown and there are some claims that it goes back to the late Roman/early Christian era; metal boxes were placed outside churches used to collect special offerings tied to the Feast of Saint Stephen. In the United Kingdom it certainly became a custom of the nineteenth century Victorians for tradesmen to collect their "Christmas boxes" or gifts in return for good and reliable service throughout the year on the day after Christmas. However, the exact etymology of the term "Boxing" is unclear, with several competing theories, none of which is definitively true. Another possibility is that the name derives from an old English tradition: in exchange for ensuring that wealthy landowners' Christmases ran smoothly, their servants were allowed to take the 26th off to visit their families. The employers gave each servant a box containing gifts and bonuses (and sometimes leftover food). In addition, around the 1800's, churches opened their alms boxes (boxes where people place monetary donations) and distributed the contents to the poor. The establishment of Boxing Day as a defined public holiday under the legislation that created the UK's Bank Holidays started the separation of 'Boxing Day' from the 'Feast of St Stephen', and today it is almost entirely a secular holiday with a tradition of shopping and post-Christmas sales starting. We invite people who celebrate this holiday to contribute to the information here.

Come Alive Pepsi Ad Campaign In the early 1970s, Pepsi-Cola introduced a new catch phrase to promote its product: 'Come Alive!' Not bad...until it was translated into some foreign-language markets. In Germany the phrase meant, 'Rise from the grave with Pepsi!' In China the phrase meant, 'Pepsi brings back your ancestors!'
