Those Were the Days


This is the year we saw steel cents, not copper, and silver nickels, not nickel.  It was also the year the US started the payroll tax (why do taxes always come with war), JFK’s PT109 was split in half by a Japanese destroyer, and Oklahoma became the first big musical, lasting from 1943 until 1948.  Song of the year was Paper Doll by the Mills brothers.



Saying of the Week

Nothing in life is to be feared.  It is only to be understood.

Madam Curie (She never heard our show or she would have put that differently)
