     Joe Pyne (December 22, 1924 – March 23, 1970)

Pyne was a radio and television talk show host, who pioneered
the confrontational style in which the host advocates a viewpoint 
and argues with guests and audience members. He was a major 
influence on other talk show hosts such as Bill O’Reilly, Rush
Limbaugh
, Glenn Beck, Morton Downey, Jr, and Michael Savage.  

Payne enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1942 and saw combat
in the South Pacific, where he earned three battle stars. In 1943,
during a Japanese bombing attack, he was wounded in the left leg.

The song reached No. 1 on the U.S.
Billboard Hot 100 the second British
recording to reach No. 1 on that chart in the year, after “Stranger on the
Shore” in May, and was also a number one hit in the UK. It was the second 
instrumental single to hit No.1 on both the US and UK weekly charts. 

”Telstar” was named after the world’s first communication satellite which
was launched by the US earlier in the year  and proceeded the Beatles’
chart debut by 13 months.
