Ancient History

Okay, this cracked me up, even though the main part of the story was tragic....

Most mornings, when I'm checking my email before work, I listen to WUMB, the Boston radio station that plays only folk music. Every morning Dave Palmater announces events from music history that happened on this date. Inevitably, most of them are about rock.

Today he made an announcement that went something like this: "On this day in 1966 Jan Berry of Jan and Dean was almost killed in a car accident near Dead Man's Curve."

There was a pause as he thought about what to say next. Then:

"I'm not going to explain it. If you're under fifty, don't worry about it. It's not important."

Little things amuse little minds.
