Seattle, WA policemen wearing face masks during the
influenza epidemic.

The Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 was a quick burning,
destructive, and chaotic flu that wiped out a large swath
of the world’s population. People were told to wear masks
but in many instances some just straight up refused. It was
all due to the lack of accurate folks research into the illness. 

Historian John Barry explained that during the flu of 1918
there was an extreme amount of disinformation going
The press did not treat the 1918 flu seriously
during the outbreak, for
reasons that are very different
than today.

There was real fake news coming out of the U.S. government
about the 1918 flu.
As a general rule, the media was extremely
complicit with the U.S. government in telling
those lies.

There was no partisan division over the 1918 flu. It was to no
one’s political benefit to try to expose the truth about the
pandemic then.

The 1954 Oldsmobile Cutlass is an iconic classic car that stands
out for its sleek design and powerful performance. It was the first
of its kind to feature a four-barrel carburetor, allowing it to reach
speeds up to 115 mph. Its signature chrome accents and curved
lines give it a timeless look that still turns heads today.

The interior is just as impressive, with luxurious leather seats,
power windows, and air conditioning. This classic not only
looks good but also has proven reliability – making it a favorite
among vintage car enthusiasts. With over 300 horsepower under
the hood, this vehicle will take you back in time in style!

Beatles Songwriting Academy: Under The Influence: Buddy Holly

Buddy Holly. | Buddy holly, Singer, Rock and roll
Charles Hardin Holley – known as Buddy Holly 
(September 7, 1936 – February 3, 1959)  

If you took out a map of the United States and traced
a line beginning at New Orleans and running up the
Mississippi River to Memphis, the tip of your finger
would pass through the very birthplace of rock and
roll—a region where nearly every step in its early
development took place and where nearly every
significant contributor to that development was born.

But if the foundation of rock and roll was mostly laid
down within 100 miles of the Mississippi River in the
mid-1950s, the blueprint for what would follow required
the further contributions of a young man born 700 miles
to the west on this day in 1936: Charles Harden Holley.

Writing and performing under the name Buddy Holly,
this Lubbock, Texas, native would have an influence
on rock and roll that would far outlast his tragically
shortened career.
