1775: a very historic day…on the east coast of the U. S. a dire warning and 131 years later on west coast things really got rockin’ but not in a good way…

At about 10:00pm on this night in 1775, William Dawes and Paul Revere began their so-called “midnight ride” to warn Americans between Charlestown and Lexington, Massachusetts, that British troops were coming.

On April 18, 1906, one of the worst earthquakes to ever hit an American city ravaged San Francisco — seven-hundred people died and over ten-thousand acres were totally devastated.

and in music history: 1960 -

This teen idol guests as “The Singing Delinquent” on an episode of Danny Thomas’ “Make Room For Daddy” on CBS-TV. It seemed like the perfect casting because his big hit that year was call “Wild One” – Bobby Rydell

Many will remember his name immortalized in the musical (and later movie) “Grease.” Those kids all went to Rydell High.
