Cassius Clay and the Beatles 1964 When the Beatles arrived in the United States in February 1964, Miami was a tour stop. (One Ed Sullivan Show was broadcast from there.) During their time in Florida the Beatles dropped in on Cassius Clay who was in training for his upcoming title encounter with world heavyweight champion Sonny Liston. The Fab Four and the Louisville Lip posed for a few publicity photos together, like the one shown below. According to some reports, Clay--soon to be Muhammad Ali--had no idea who the Beatles were.

Our Gang Cast Photo 1933 This is a terrific photograph of the Our Gang cast. It was taken in 1933 during the making of 'Fish Hooky.' This photo bridges the eras of the Our Gang troupe. Fish Hooky saw the return of Farina and Joe Cobb in brief cameo roles after a long absence. It is the last episode that Wheezer (third from the left) appears in, and it shows a very young Spanky McFarland at the far right. Fish Hooky is consisdered one of the best Our Gang shorts ever made. ('Old-timers' Mary Kornman and Mickey Daniels also appeared in the film as the school teacher and truant officer respectively, but alas, are not present in this still photo.)

The Shining 1980 TV trailer Unfortunately thick with broadcast static as it was recorded via antenna in 1980, but the still-eerie television trailer for director Stanley Kubrick's adaptation of the Stephen King novel "The Shining". Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd and Scatman Crothers star in the terrifying tale of a family subject to the horrors of a haunted resort hotel sealed off from the rest of the world by the winter snow.

Merlin Olsen Passes at age 69 Merlin Olsen, the Hall of Fame tackle who anchored the Los Angeles Rams’ Fearsome Foursome, the line that glamorized defensive play in the N.F.L., died early Thursday at a hospital in Duarte, Calif. He was 69. Olsen was also a longtime color commentator for NBC’s pro football and Rose Bowl telecasts, working with Dick Enberg, and he acted on television, most prominently as the very large and bearded Jonathan Garvey in NBC’s “Little House on the Prairie” and in his own series, “Father Murphy.”

Art Fleming - Original Jeopardy Host 'Who was Art Fleming?' That would be the correct question to the answer, 'The original host of Jeopardy!' Fleming was an actor who had no experience as a TV host. Jeopardy! creator Merv Griffin saw Fleming in commercials and thought his 'authoritarian but warm' persona would be perfect for his new quiz show. Griffin's instinct proved to be right. Fleming's stint as host of daytime Jeopardy! on NBC ran from the debut broadcast on Monday, March 30, 1964 to its conclusion on Friday, January 3, 1975 and encompassed 2,753 shows. Fleming also hosted a nighttime version of Jeopardy! during its NBC years, plus two short-lived syndicated attempts to revive the show after 1975. He never missed hosting a single episode. Sadly, NBC saw no point in keeping the tapes of old game shows, so the vast majority of the original Jeopardy! shows were destroyed and are lost forever. Fleming died of pancreatic cancer in 1995 at age 70.

Dick Contino - Master Accordionist Dick Contino, THE legendary virtuoso of the accordion, got his start with Horace Heidt, back in December, 1946, when he appeared on the first Horace Heidt-Phillip Morris radio broadcast. By 1948, he launched a solo career and never looked back. I can't say the accordion is one of my favorite instruments, but in the capable hands of Mr. Contino, it's easy to see why he was (and continues to be) a sensation and the reason so many kids in the 1950's felt inspired to play that instrument. This cut - Lady of Spain - may be his most famous (or is that infamous-?) as this song was often used as the brunt of jokes when discussing the accordion. Perhaps, but one listen and you can understand why Dick caused such a sensation. He certainly did for one member of this audience who was apparently overcome by sheer accordion shock and bliss. At around 1:20, there's a decided shriek of delight-? heard above the applause. It just doesn't get any better...

Ernie Harwell Dies The Detroit Tigers say longtime broadcaster Ernie Harwell has died today (May 4, 2010). He was 92. Harwell called Tigers games for more than four decades and was one of Michigan's most beloved sports figures. Spokesman Brian Britten said Tuesday that the team learned about Harwell's death from his agent. Harwell announced in September 2009 that he had been diagnosed with inoperable cancer of the bile duct. Harwell started with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1948 and continued with the New York Giants and Baltimore Orioles before joining the Tigers in 1960. The Baseball Hall of Fame honored Harwell in 1981 with the Ford C. Frick Award, given annually to a broadcaster for major contributions to baseball. The Detroit Free Press said Harwell died at his home in Novi, Michigan.
