Alton Glenn Miller (March 1, 1904 – December 15, 1944)

People magazine recently reported a retired trawlerman from
England is “utterly convinced” he pulled up the wreck of the
famed American bandleader’s aircraft in his fishing net 32 years
ago. And now, U.S.-based historical aircraft researchers from
TIGHAR say his account is “totally credible.”

According to TIGHAR, which stands for The International Group
for Historic Aircraft Recovery, the man was advised to drop his
unusual catch back into the English Channel, where it has
remained ever since. But he recorded the coordinates and the

Hit Parader was first published in 1942 during World War II out of Derby, Connecticut and became one of the longest-running U.S. music magazines.

The publication pre-dated the music charts by a few years.  Initially the
magazine would provide the lyrics to the popular songs of the day, a practice
which came to an end in the ’70’s.

The magazine came into the spirit of pop and rock with the arrival of first,
The Beach Boys and then especially with the explosion on the scene by
The Beatles.  At that point in time it took on a whole new look and feel,
often mimicked by many other ‘teen’ magazines which began to ‘pop’ up.

Hit Parader migrated through the various genre’s during the 1970’s – moving
on to hard rock, metal and the like up into the mid 1980’s.  The magazine

and finally called it quits after putting out it’s final issue in December of
