It seems like every week this year, I see another something that is 50 years old (that is, it happened in 1963)! Here are the biggies I have observed
- The CBS Evening News becomes the first national news broadcast to go to 30 minutes
- Doctor Who premiers on the BBC
- The Beatles first album, Please Please Me, is released
- The March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King's seminal speach, I have a dream.
- Michael Jordan is born
- Brad Pitt is born
- John F. Kennedy is assassinated
- The Tufts Beelzebubs are formed
- Actually, the Bub's first concert was December, 1962, but we celebrate 1963 as the first year of the Bubs.
