The tire company debuted the rubber product, no longer used in today's stretch fabrics, at the 1939-1940 World's Fair with a promise that it would fulfull 'that very much formfitting desire that is paramount today in so much of women's wear.'"

Elton John and George Michael  Dont Let The Sun Go Down On Me As successful as the 1974 record from Elton had been, it was as a duet with George Michael that "Don't Let The Sun Go Down on Me" had its greatest success. The pair had performed the song at the Live Aid concert in 1985. Recorded live at a concert at Wembley Stadium, London on March 25, 1991 when Elton John was a surprise guest of George Michael, the duet became a massive hit on both sides of the Atlantic. It was released later that year and reached number one on the UK singles chart for two weeks in December 1991 and a single week on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1992. The song was the only #1 single of the modern era to be recorded at an outdoors venue.

Lunch Counter Sit In 1960 On February 1, 1960 four freshmen from North Carolina A and T struck a blow against segregation by sitting at a 'whites only' lunch counter at a department store in Greensboro, North Carolina. They were denied service and quietly sat there until the store closed. However, their actions caused repeat performances in the following days by even more black students--and numerous copycat sit-ins throughout the segregated south.

Mrs Columbo Opening The NBC 60-minute mystery show Mrs. Columbo lasted less than one year. It premiered on February 26, 1979 and last aired on December 6, 1979. It has a special place in TV history for having four different titles! It went from Mrs. Columbo to Kate Columbo to Kate The Detective and finally Kate Loves A Mystery. The premise was that Kate (played by Kate Mulgrew) was supposed to be the wife of Peter Falk's famed Columbo character. In his show, his wife was never seen. In Kate's show, he was never seen. Regardless of the premise or the title changes, the show failed to attract a following. Maybe a better title might have been 'Viewers Hate Kate.'

Listowel Arena Disaster 50th Anniversary Fifty years ago today, on Saturday morning, February 28, 1959, in a small Canadian town not far from where I live, a terrible tragedy occurred: The roof of the Listowel (Ontario) Arena collapsed due to a heavy accumulation of snow and inadequate construction. Seven peewee hockey players (aged 10, 11 and 12) and Listowel's recreation director were crushed to death by the debris while they were on the ice surface. A group of other young players preparing for their upcoming game in the arena's dressing rooms were completely unscathed. The arena was only four years old.
