MP3 of the Day

On this day in 1904, the play Peter Pan, by James Barrie, opened at the Duke of York's Theater in London. Barrie wrote many other plays, but few are still performed today, and none have had the staying power of Peter Pan. In 1928 he became president of the Society of Authors and chancellor of the University of Edinburgh in 1930. Barrie died in London in 1937. Today we have Banned From Pubs by PETER & THE TEST TUBE BABIES.

MP3 of the Day

When the Sex Pistols cancelled, ELVIS COSTELLO and the ATTRACTIONS filled in as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on this day in 1977. Costello wanted to play "Radio Radio" on the program. Columbia Records, Costello's US label, on the other hand, was interested in having an already-established song performed on SNL, to stoke the fires of interest in the band prior to the American release of My Aim Is True and This Year's Model. On the live show, Costello began playing "Less than Zero." However, after a few bars, he turned to the Attractions, waving his hand and yelling "Stop! Stop!," then said to the audience, "I'm sorry, ladies and gentlemen, there's no reason to do this song here." He then led the band in a performance of "Radio Radio." Costello was banned from Saturday Night Live for twelve years. Today we have an early demo version of the song Radio, Radio.

MP3 of the Day

Norwegian Roald Amundsen became the first explorer to reach the South Pole on this day in 1911 beating his British rival, Robert Falcon Scott. After his historic Antarctic journey, he later made attempts to become the first explorer to fly over the North Pole. In 1925, in an airplane, he flew within 150 miles of the goal. In 1926, he passed over the North Pole in a dirigible just three days after American explorer Richard E. Byrd had apparently done so in an aircraft. In 1996, a diary that Byrd had kept on the flight was found that seemed to suggest that the he had turned back 150 miles short of its goal because of an oil leak, making Amundsen's dirigible expedition the first flight over the North Pole. Today we have a new song called: Too Drunk To Dream by THE MAGNETIC FIELDS from their soon to be released album Distortion.

Filming began on Gone with the Wind on this day in 1938. Producer David O.
