This day in 1964 saw The Beatles take to their first ever world tour, taking a flight from Hong Kong to Australia, greeting thousands of fans along the way and upon arrival. The group appeared in an open-top truck roof, despite the pouring rain!


This day in 1978 saw John Travolta and Olivia Newton John go to number 1 in both the US and UK singles chart with ‘You’re The One That I Want’, taken from the world famous musical ‘Grease’.

Happy 49th Birthday to Kim Deal, bassist and vocalist of the Pixies! Deal adopted the stage name ‘Mrs. John Murphy’ for the release of the Pixie’s first album ‘Come On Pilgrim’ in 1987, choosing the name as a feminist ironic joke after chatting with a woman who liked being called by her husband’s name!
