As some of you already know since reading the last post I had previously posted about not being able to continue with this post due to dramatic changes in my personal life as well as my work. In the previous post I forgot to thank @AlyssaPandora, @AdamPandora, @ErickPandora, @UncleBud, @Pandora, and all the faithful readers who read as well as supported this post. I am truly sorry for not being able to continue with this post, with the amount of research and time it takes it is too much time that I can no longer afford. It is my hope that this post continues on, so if you have two hours a day to spare then please consider carrying on with this post. Thank you all once again for your great support.

Take care and GOD bless.


Good Thursday morning @Pandora community. I decided not to completely give this post up, but having stated that, I will not post like before. I will make each post considerably shorter than before. I will only post what I think is the most popular. I will not say more important because I believe everything that has to do with music history is important. Every music artist has played and continues to play a very important part in the music world. To post everything about This Day In The History Of Music for each day is to time consuming, that is why I will only post the most popular of that day in our music history's past. 

Have a great day, take care and GOD bless.

Good Tuesday morning dear friend, I will be back posting in a couple of weeks. Work has been extremely busy for me this year, which is a great thing. Just to busy for me to spend time here posting. Things will start slowing down soon, so I hope to see you soon. 

Take care and GOD bless.
