Beeswax Vinyl Daily December 17, 2023

Non-musical history for today:  1819 – Simón Bolívar declared the independence of Gran Colombia in Angostura (now Ciudad Bolívar in Venezuela) from the Spanish Empire. Gran Colombia was modern-day Colombia, Venezuela, Panama, mainland Ecuador (not Galapogos Islands), Guyana, some of Peru, and some of Brazil. Can you guess who Bolivia was named after? That was part of the Gran Colombia, as well.
