I know where I was the day in 1963 when John, Paul, Ringo, and George took the stage on The Ed Sillivan show... Watching the show with my Dad in City of Two Mountains, just west of Montreal. Dad thought they were crazy, and I thought they were cool! They sure changed the music scene after that show! They sang "I want to hold your hand" Dad ended up liking their music. Feb. 9, 1963, 73 million viewers, a record! History in the making!
By the time Neil Armstrong put his big foot on the moon, we had moved to Orillia, Ontario, and I remember being glued to the TV to watch... I could not believe they were there! this had to be history! Watched with Mom and Dad if I remember right. July 21, 1969, One small step...
A little out of order here, but I remember being in my Grade 6 class in Two Mountains, when our Teacher told us that President Kennedy had been shot! I remember that it was very serious, and more history being made... November 22, 1963.
Being a big hockey fan, I very well remember being on night shift, as a press operator, at Percision Rubber Products in Orillia when Paul Henderson scored the biggest goal in hockey, allowing Canada to beat the hated Russians in the big series. We listened to it on radio...what a thrill it was! This had to be history! 1972 Summit Series.
After all, when history is being made now, it is at least in High Defination!
Wonder what is next?
