On This Date
In 1876 – The first telephone call is made in Boston when Alexander Graham Bell, talks to his assistant Thomas Watson, who is in another room. The two then swapped places and Bell listened while Watson read some passages from a book. Three days earlier Bell had received a patent for the telephone from the United States, his application titled Improvement in Telegraphy.
In 1920 – Joe Malone of the Quebec Bulldogs scores six goals in a 10-4 win over the Ottawa Senators. On January 21, Malone had established the NHL record with seven goals in a game, and he remains the only NHL player to score at least six goals in an NHL game twice. Malone finished the year leading the NHL in both goals (39) and points (49).
In 1962 – Bruce Channel is at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 with Hey! Baby. The song would spend three weeks at the top and while Channel would follow this up with four more appearances in the Hot 100, Channel – pronounced Shu-NELL – remains one of the few acts whose only Top 40 hit went to #1. Channel would later tour Europe, backed at one show by a little-known group called the Beatles.
Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views beyond the comprehension of the weak; and that it is doing God’s service when it is violating all His laws.
