The Hubble Space Telescope was launched into
low Earth orbit in
1990 and remains in operation. It was not the
first space telescope,
but it is one of the largest and most versatile, renowned both as a
vital research tool and as a public relations boon for
astronomy.

The Hubble telescope is named after astronomer Edwin Hubble
(below) and is one of NASA’s
Great Observatories.

IT WAS A MONITOR WEEKEND ON NBC RADIO

See the source image

 

Monitor was a weekend radio program broadcast from June 12,
1955 until January 26, 1975. Airing live and nationwide on the
NBC Radio Network, it originally aired beginning Saturday
morning at 8am and continuing through the weekend until 12
midnight on Sunday. However, after the first few months, the
full weekend broadcast was shortened when the midnight-to-
dawn hours were dropped since few NBC stations carried it.

The program offered a magazine-of-the-air mix of news, sports,
comedy, variety, music, celebrity interviews and other short
segments (along with records, usually of popular middle-of-the-
road songs, especially in its later years). Its length and eclectic
format were radical departures from the traditional radio shows.

The show was the brainchild of legendary NBC radio and
television network president
Sylvester (Pat) Weaver

On January 25 and 26, 1975, Monitor spent its last 12 hours
looking back on its 20-year history of more than 20,000-plus
hours with hosts Big Wilson and John Bartholomew Tucker.

Many clips were played, including Dave Garroway’s interview
with Marilyn Monroe on the show’s first day, Frank McGee’s
talk with Martin Luther King Jr. in the early 1960s, Bob and
Ray spoofing “Miss Monitor” and reporter Helen Hall riding
on a roller-coaster. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

FIRST ‘’FIRESIDE CHAT’’ ON THIS DAY IN 1933

See the source image

Eight days after his inauguration, President Franklin D. Roosevelt
gave his first national radio address, or “fireside chat” (above), broadcast directly from the
White House
during the Great
Depression.  He began that address simply: “I want to talk for a
few minutes with the people of the United States about banking.”
He went on to explain his recent decision to close the nation’s
banks in order to stop a surge in mass withdrawals by panicked investor’s worried about possible bank failures. The banks would
be reopening the next day.


Roosevelt thanked the public for their “fortitude and good temper
during what he called the “banking holiday.”
