Those Were the Days
Steamboat Willie made his grand entrance in 1928 and the world has never been the same, especially the Disney world. Yo-yos were manufactured in California by a Filipino immigrant named Pedro Flores (you thought it was Yo-Yo Man). Emelia Earhart became the first woman to cross the Atlantic in an airplane (as a passenger). Later she did it solo. Top song of the year was Blue Yodel #1 (one of Brian’s favorites on the banjo). It is also known as T is for Texas by Jimmy Rodgers.
