Beeswax Vinyl Daily November 22, 2023

Non-musical history for today: 1718 – Royal Navy Lieutenant Robert Maynard attacked and boarded the vessels of the British pirate Edward Teach (best known as “Blackbeard”) off the coast of North Carolina. The casualties on both sides included Maynard’s first officer, Mister Hyde, and Teach himself. Teach’s head was removed from his body, the body tossed into the inlet and the head taken to Virginia where it was on a pole, on display to turn about any would-be pirates. It stayed there for several years, I hear.

Recorded in the Omniverus Podcast Studios at Liberty Plaza.
