Wednesday, April 10th, 1974

I had a bad day at school.

We didn't get finished at work until very late because two girls decided to work late over there for some reason. When I finally got home, I watched two--or rather parts of two--great TV specials on the tube.


To add a little perspective, here are some highlights in the world of popular music from 1974:

Dylan tours for the first time since his motorcycle accident years earlier.
The Captain marries Tennille.
Cher divorces Sonny.
Kiss releases their first album.
John and Yoko reunite.
The Ramones, Blondie, Cheap Trick, Bad Company, Talking Heads and Van Halen play their first concerts.
Mama Cass dies.
George Harrison tours for the first time since 1966.
Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham join Fleetwood Mac.
ABBA tops the UK charts with contest wining song, Waterloo.

The "two great TV specials" (from my research and guesstimation ) must be "Sandy (Duncan) in Disneyland" ( ) and "The Perry Como Sunshine Show" ( )!!!
