June 18 – Pretty dull unless you like Walt Disney or baseball

fred-lynnUnless you’re a Walt Disney or Gunsmoke fan, today won’t excite you very much.

In 1961, “Gunsmoke” was broadcast for the last time on CBS radio. I didn’t even know it was ever on the radio.

In 1999, Walt Disney’s “Tarzan” opened.

On yes, if you’re a baseball fan, something exciting did happen in 1975. Fred Lynn of the Boston Red Sox hit three home runs, a triple and a single in a game against the Detroit Tigers. Too bad he didn’t hit a double. He would have batted for the cycle. A year later, he made an Aqua Velva commercial, in which two women called him into the stands. Do they still make Aqua Velva?
