23rd Jan 1991, John Sebastian, owner and general manager of KLSK FM in Albuquerque, New Mexico, played Led Zeppelins 'Stairway To Heaven' for twenty-four solid hours to inaugurate a format change to Classic Rock. Police showed up with guns drawn: once after a listener reported...

Travis Ernst A MN station pulled a stunt like that playing a track by R.E.M. On a loop for 24 hours the day before they went to heavy metal format.
Mal Kiely That's hilarious! At least they knew people were actually listening! hahahaa
Theo Brubaker In Killeen Tx., a DJ pulled this same stunt playing Ray Charles' "Hit the Road Jack" for at least 24 hours, I think it went longer.
永塚智子 I'd never known.

23rd Jan 1965, 'Downtown' made Petula Clark the first UK female singer to have a No.1 on the US singles chart since Vera Lynn in 1952. The song was also a No.2 hit in the UK. Recorded in three takes (with the second take ultimately...

Steve Donnelly Loved the song......had it as a single in those days but went up in flames with the rest of my stuff ....but only now while reading this do I find out that Jimmy Page was involved.... but at 5 years old one doesn't know those things then!!! Life carries on!!! :-)
John McConnell "HI" Mike Hartsell - I had a crush on Petulla Clark...this song came out when I was in college - I would sing it as I would walk from DU to "downtown" Pgh...I know you like theater - check out her performance in the musical "Blood Brothers" (amazing)...and she also did (in London) "Sunset Boulevard" - also an amazing performance...
Vicki Watson One of my childhood favorites. It's the first song I remember since I was 5 years old when it was released. Brings back memories of shopping down town with my mom and younger brother in the sixties!
George Croly One of the first songs I remember hearing on the radio in my Dad's '61 Lincoln convertible. I was 5. Never knew about the Page connection until you posted this, Paige Bridgman. Also have her version singing in German in my collection. One of those songs that never gets old.
David Forbes I still love the nostalgic feeling this song evokes. I first heard it in Scotland in 1965 when I was 10 then later that year we moved to Canada and our teachers sang it at a public event.
Perry G Buote I hate this song for Two reasons 1 it was on the radio when they told me my grandfather died, 2 I have been to San Francisco and her home town and it is not hard to find Downtown .
Marilyn Crosbie I was just reading some quotes from Canadian pianist, Glenn Gould, who enjoyed listening to the music of "Pet" Clark, as he called her. After Glenn's untimely death at age 50, Petula heard about his interest in her music and said she regrets that they never met.
Marilyn Crosbie I grew up with her songs. I was living in an isolated village as a newly wed and longed to "go downtown where all the lights were bright......."
Tania Figueroa Love Petula Clark! And I just love that song "Downtown"!! A fantastic production; the horns especially; simply teriffic! 🎼❤👌🎼😊😊
Charlene Douglas When I was very young,I saw her in concert in Toronto at the Okeefe centre,which I don't think is even still there,I still have this song on a 45
Deborah Tracy Kyla Osadche this song always reminds me of 'Lost' when it was playing when we were first introduced to Desmond. I miss that show.
David Mitchell I'm working with Tony Hatch on a musical called Downtown, based on Truman Capote's famous Black & White Ball at the Plaza Hotel in New York... Uptown!
Diana McGeehan I remember singing this song with my Mom, riding down the road in our '65 Olds 88... good times!
Wendy Cates My favorite song as a 6 yr old & my mom would take us shopping!
Brian Bettridge Loved this song. Didn't realise Jimmy Page (Led Zep) played on it. Ms. Clarks voice was divine. Memories.
Shumaker Constantino Kimberly Never thought of Jimmy Page as a session player. Guess I forgot we all start somewhere.
Mike Bates First in a run of about 15 classicssongs.my own particular favourite being I COULDN'T LIVE WITHOUT YOUR LOVE.because of the memories it evokes that of me leaving home for the first time and being so so homesick
Jo Turnbull Smith Wish people would quit posting these, makes me feel old.;)
Albert Guy Mcmullin I was in the 8th grade. Petula Clark was the first red haired person I "noticed." I have "noticed" them ever since....
Joanne Cochrane Another fantastic version The Saw Doctors feat Petulla Clarke https://youtu.be/ItVEhL-T7qQ
Andrew Mikula Wasn't Petula Clark an actress going back to her childhood before she ever became a recording artist?
Sherrill Dean First song I recall as a human I was four almost 5 years old
Eric Easter I remember driving in my friends convertible with his mom playing this song I was very young but it was great
Rucker Kelly The first Song I remember on the Radio as a little Child
Tonya Pitman Thats crazy. Had no idea lol like bon scott singing with valentines lol

22nd Jan 1966, The Beach Boys went into the studio to record 'Wouldn't It Be Nice', which would be the opening track on their forthcoming album Pet Sounds. Listen to Brian Wilson talking to This Day in Music Radio about the making of Pet Sounds:...

Kev Fenwick The Beach Boys are playing in Australia in country N.S.W. in a couple of weeks, I just finished reading Mike Love, my life as a Beach Boy, great look into the lives of the band members
Mark Krantz Pet sounds was an amazing album. Brian Wilson's shout out to The Beatles.

22nd Jan 1960, Born on this day, Michael Hutchence, vocals, INXS, (1988 UK No.2 & US No.1 single 'Need You Tonight'). 1987 album 'Kick' has sold over 10m copies in the US alone and features four Top 10 singles; 'Need You Tonight,' 'Devil Inside', 'New...

Mark Tynan For me, most Aussie bands have the same basic characteristics, from AC/DC, through the Easybeats, BeeGees, Jigsaw to Midnight Oil, Men at Work and INXS. Everything was played in a major key and kept bright, just like the Aussie weather, all their songs celebrated life and free and internal introspection was kept to a minimum.
Kevin Barry These Aussies were so amazing live ! 30 years ago, they were so talented and blew me away when I worked at Pine Knob music theatre.
Susan Radecke Yates He suffered a head injury from accident that left him with no sense of smell or taste. I lost my sense of smell also, 10 years ago from illness - a devastating loss. Let this man Rest In Peace and shame on those who ridicule the manner in which he died.
Cindi Gervasi The best of the best. Hope you're at peace Michael, the music lives on.
Glen Moon Still have my INXS cassette tape. Happy Birthday Michael Hutchence. I had the chance to see you live in Philly in 1991.
Melissa E Herrera His beautiful, talented, and troubled young soul will live on forever, and future generations will (hopefully) appreciate the magic he created with INXS...I have countless memories of incredible times made exponentially more real because "Dancing on the Jetty" or "Devil Inside" or "Don't Change" played somewhere in the background...https://youtu.be/LhBOpcK3-Bk
Don Jacobsen The laserium in Seattle did a laser show to Kick, great show.
Andrew Siegfried i drove a truck on one of their tours not a bad group of guys
Hope Dabney After his motorcycle accident he was never the same.# Can't be replaced
William Fields This guy was the sh--! No one commanded a stage like he did. Such a sad ending of a great talent.
David Nicholson Cornholio Bout the only thing I liked about inxs is hutchences singlet hated there music sorry
Ron Koralewski Awesome band, saw there last show here in Chicago. 🎸🎷🎤
Chris Clark I still listen to Kick from time to time. One of the 80s best albums.
Jeff Stauffer I had no idea, I heard about them for like 5 years and then nothing.
Geoffrey Bayman Live he had a great presence, - stage personality reminescent of Mercury.
Denise Blake Saw them in Durban. Not long before the tragedy. Such a charismatic singer. Thanks Michael.
Dawn Green-phenneger I loved Michael Hutchence....he had soooo much talent and I was soooo sad when he passed away! !!
Doug Medina Their music sounds dated now.Split Enz from N.Z. were better.
Wayne Anderson I was at George's place
Megan Mc Great band! Great vocal talent... highly underrated and gone too soon.
Robin Boucher Happy thoughts of his great way of entertaining. Great singer.
Thomas Sullivan Weiss He exfixiated himself while jerking himself off and choking himself at the same time...... What a tool!
Kathy Jean I loved that entire album. Here's to the group and especially to Mr. Hutchence.
Chloe Dancer Lore, un homenaje pero ya!!!
Joseph Toman R.I.P. Michael Hutchence.

22nd Jan 1931, Born on this day, Sam Cooke US soul singer (1957 US No.1 & UK No.29 single with 'You Send Me' and a 1986 UK No.2 single with 'Wonderful World', which was first released in 1960). Cooke died on December 11th 1964. More...

Charles Schexneider He along with Otis Redding were the greatest voices voices in soul and rhythm and blues ,rest in peace both of you. The world misses you
Arthur Guitar-Poppleton I think it was 1962 ? I saw him on the little Richard tour, backed by Sounds Incorparated at Sheffield City Hall, He opened with Cupid fabulous Stage Act great singer and showman what a waste of life ?? I've said this a thousand times for how great he was he was topped easily by Little Richard he was something else trust me !!!!!
Mark Connors Born on this day also is Steve Perry. Sam Cooke was one of Steve's biggest influences.
Tony Smith Sport coat,& one shoe he broke thru the door and got shot, beat with a broom..trick robbed by a whore in a cheap motel room...flashing his money, he met his doom, now Read the words inscribed on his toomb until the day breaks, and the shadows flee away..RIP
Al Gennusa His "killer" was not charged with anything after an inquest. Then she sued his estate...and won. Sam may have had a sweet voice. But in real life, he wasn't as sweet.
Julio E Fernandez-Ochoa "At first I thought it was infatuation,, but oooh,, it's lasted too long,,,," --- "Darling you send me,,, Darling you thrill me" ---- What a voice, What a song!
Jerrick Fame Feagin Hes my second favorite soul singer...i gotta give david ruffin the slight edge tho...
Hank Nelson The King of Soul. We love you, Sam. Thank you for the songs.

22nd Jan 1959, Alone with an acoustic guitar and tape recorder in his New York City apartment Buddy Holly made his last recordings, including ‘Peggy Sue Got Married’, ‘Crying, Waiting, Hoping’, ‘That's What They Say’, ‘What To Do’, ‘Learning The Game’ and ‘That Makes It...

Pete Carroll Buddy started home recording some of these songs in late 1958. A remarkable talent. Home Recording never really caught on until the 90s. Buddy was def ahead of his time. Had he lived, I'm sure he would have been scoring for major films. He had started plans to have his own Record Plant & Publishing Co in his home town of Lubbock, 10 years before The Beatles created Apple Music. The music didn't die, it lives on in all of us.
Gary Campbell And not long after on February 3rd he would be gone almost if his spirit knew and his music needed be remembered forever and always will be
John Rawling If you look at how some musicians started and how they later developed it makes you realise what Buddy could have achieved, given that his early work was already so original and innovative. Just about every major rock star of today has documented how indebted they are to Buddy Holly. A genius taken from us before his full potential was realised.
Mark Laidlaw The honesty in his lyrics. According to one film on his rise, managers tried to bring in supposedly more accomplished musicians to back him and he said no Crickets no Buddy Holly! Brave words for those days
Peter Ost I was 9 years old on my way to school it was very cold and later my grandma heard it on the news and told me in real life but the music never died can still listen to it today and someday we will see them again
Benjamin S. Jenkins Ive still got a couple of reel to reel recordings from howard ragland he played in a band there in Lubbock called the sparkles febuary 3rd if im not mistaken was the day the music died, the crickets were cool, inspired the Beatles way more than anyone else to the point of the harmonica in love me do, if you listen you can sing one of buddys songs right on top of it now im not saying the beatles ripped off buddy holly but, that's exactly what im saying. Buddy lives!
Bob Martin His Stratocaster was sent back to his family after his death. Its now in the buddy holly center in Lubbock Texas
Patrick Doyle A musical genius ahead of his time and taken way too soon but if I have to wonder what he would've went on to do . He really changed the recording industry all on his own.
Rene Esquibel He is buried in the same cemetery as my grandpa.... I was born and raised in Lubbock Texas
Chris J. Price An incredible talent, taken (along with the others) far too soon... #RIP
Jimmy Correa one of the early rockers who would leave an influence on so many artists yet to come. this is one of my favorites maybe it's yours too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwHrx0r0t2s
Keith Emery Just took this the other night at the venue of his last show
Lee Beckett All time favourite artist, if there was an "evening with" it would be him
Mark Laidlaw stones did a fair cover of "Not fade away"& blind faith did a great cover of "Well alright"
William DeRuyter That'll be the day when I die
Rob De Biasio Me too Chuck.
Bobby Fallon The Day the Music Died😢
Roy Critchlow I wonder where his stratocaster is today,priceless no doubt?
David Forbes I wonder if all the tunes/songs he recorded have been released.
Mike Antonyk Way ahead of his time. He would still be going strong today.
Richard Younger Simply "The Best."
Neville Nuk Here is someone that could write music and lyrics and sing. Hugely talented. Compared to todays so called musicians, they are rubbish
John Nadin The soundtrack of my teenage years. What say you Michael Pryce.
Norman Lawrenson I have just got hold of Connie Frances sing buddy holly and there is still no one better got everything he has done
Eric Kennedy Rock 'n' Roll legend.
