Today In History

Bee Gees' 'Saturday Night Fever' album goes #1 for 24 weeks

The Gibb brothers' 'Saturday Night Fever' soundtrack broke chart records that still stand today. Thirty-nine years ago, the Bee Gees became the kings of disco and made chart history in the process. At the height of bell-bottom and satin-shirt mania in 1978, the pop group's contributions to the "Saturday Night Fever" soundtrack turned the Brothers Gibb, Barry, Maurice and Robin into superstars.

Jackie Robinson impacts America
In 1945, Jackie Robinson signed a contract to play for the Kansas City Monarchs of the Negro League for a salary of $400 per month. In his one and only season in the Negro Leagues, he batted .387 and appeared in the league’s All-Star Game. Later in that same year, Brooklyn Dodgers’ President and General Manager Branch Rickey, who had been scouting the Negro Leagues for talent, signed Robinson to a contract to play for the Dodgers’ International League affiliate in Montreal for the 1946 season. Of course, just one year after playing for Montreal, Jackie Robinson broke the Major League’s color barrier when he debuted for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947.

CLASSIC MOVIE SCENES

TV Show of the Day
Bonanza - Season 3 Episode 1 - The Smiler
Bonanza Premiered on September 12, 1959 Producer David Dortort sold NBC on the idea of creating Bonanza, as a contrast to the sitcoms and formula Westerns that filled the TV schedule at that time. Ben Cartwright, the strong patriarch, guided his three sons through both wise counsel and model behavior. Each son came from a different mother. Ben Cartwright was a widower three times. Adam was the intellectual and somewhat brooding oldest son, a man more likely to use brains rather than brawn. Hoss was the gentle giant, a man of incredible strength with a heart of gold. Little Joe was the irrepressible youngest son, impulsive and a romantic at heart. The setting for the Cartwright family was the sprawling Ponderosa ranch, an empire of cattle, timber and mining set in the mountains of Nevada, near Lake Tahoe
