Beeswax Vinyl Daily April 22, 2024

Non-musical history for today: 1906 – The Intercalated Games open in Athens. This is basically the modern Olympics, although the medals are not acknowledged or recognized by the IOC today. Some of the games included: aquatics (diving and swimming), athletics, cycling (road and track), fencing, football (well, soccer), gymnastics, rowing, shooting, tennis, tug of war, weightlifting, and wrestling. There was an “unofficial” event of “pistol dueling.” 854 athletes, 848 men and 6 women, from 20 countries, competed at the 1906 Intercalated Games.

Music history, album anniversaries, birthdays, and deaths for April 22.

Recorded in the Omniverus Podcast Studios at Liberty Plaza.
