Beeswax Vinyl Daily May 17, 2024

Non-musical history for today: 1900 – L. Frank Baum’s children’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz was first published in the United States. The first copy was given to his sister. The character Elphaba in Wicked was named that because of Baum’s initials. LFB or El Pha Ba. I love The Wizard of Oz and Wicked.

Music history, album anniversaries, birthdays, and deaths for May 17.

Recorded in the Omniverus Podcast Studios at Liberty Plaza.
