Star-Spangled Banner Becomes US National Anthem - 1931 On November 3, 1929, Robert Ripley drew a panel in his syndicated cartoon, Ripley's Believe it or Not!, saying "Believe It or Not, America has no national anthem". This news startled a great many people who thought The Star-Spangled Banner, written as a poem by Francis Scott Key, had long been America's official national anthem. It hadn't. For years, Hail Columbia had served that purpose on official government occasions. My Country 'Tis of Thee was also frequently used. In 1931, John Philip Sousa published his opinion in favor of the Star-Spangled Banner, stating "...it is the spirit of the music that inspires" as much as it is Key’s "soul-stirring" words. By a law signed on March 3, 1931 by President Herbert Hoover, The Star-Spangled Banner was finally adopted as the national anthem of the United States.

John Kiley - Fenway Park Organist Remember when ballparks had organists? John Kiley was the organist at Boston's Fenway Park for nearly 40 years. He began his career providing musical accompaniment for silent movies. Eventually he became a fixture at Boston sports events, playing at Fenway Park and Boston Garden. Kiley was famous for his swift-moving renditions of The Star-Spangled Banner--as demonstrated here.

Canadian Hockey Fans Finish US Anthem On November 15, 2014 the Toronto Maple Leafs were hosting the Nashville Predators at the Air Canada Centre. Whenever an American-based team plays in Toronto, both the US and Canadian anthems are performed. This night, the singer's microphone malfunctioned halfway through the Star-Spangled Banner. No problem! The crowd finished the anthem for her!
