Beeswax Vinyl Daily May 31, 2024

Non-musical history for today: 2003 – Air France retired its fleet of Concorde aircraft. There were a multitude of factors that led to Concorde’s retirement – both commercial and safety-related. The aircraft was noisy and extremely expensive to operate, which restricted flight availability and meant that fares were often prohibitively high for many consumers. I think there were other environmental factors, as well.

2005 – Vanity Fair revealed that Mark Felt was “Deep Throat”. Deep Throat was the pseudonym given to the secret informant who provided information in 1972 to Bob Woodward, who shared it with Carl Bernstein, which led to the event known as “The Watergate Scandal.”

Music history, album anniversaries, birthdays, and deaths for May 31.
