Beeswax Vinyl Daily February 28, 2024

Non-musical history for today: Actually, two things today…

1983 – The final episode of M*A*S*H aired, with almost 110 million viewers. Titled “Goodbye, Farewell and Amen,” it became the most-watched and highest-rated single television episode in US television history at the time, with a record-breaking viewership (60.2 rating and 77 share). No, the New York sanitation department did NOT run into a problem because people waited until after to go to the bathroom.

1993 – The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents raided the Branch Davidian church in Waco, Texas, with a warrant to arrest the group’s leader, David Koresh, starting a 51-day standoff. It was amazing watching the coverage of this, which dominated the headlines and news channels. Tragic? Yes. Captivating? Definitely yes.

Music history, album anniversaries, birthdays, and deaths for February 28.

Recorded in the Omniverus Podcast Studios at Liberty Plaza.
