1980: Although they had found the UK chart with several earlier entries, The Jam top the list for the first time with "Going Underground". They would repeat this success three more times before disbanding in 1982. Despite their immense popularity in Britain, the band never found an audience in North America.
1973: The BBC banned all teenybopper acts appearing on UK TV show Top Of The Pops after a riot following a David Cassidy performance.
1976: Boz Scaggs' biggest album, "Silk Degrees" makes its first appearance on the Billboard chart, where it will climb to #2. It's his seventh solo album, but the first to go Platinum. Among the accompanying studio musicians were David Paich, Jeff Porcaro, Steve Porcaro and David Hungate, who would go on to form the band Toto.
1955: 19 year old Ruby Murray has five records in the UK Top 20, including "Softly, Softly" at #2 and "Let Me Go, Lover" at #5.
Nearly two months into Trump’s presidency, we’ve seen all the stories imploring us to write, call, and fax our senators about the issues that matter most to us.

It’s called “Resistbot,” and it’s by far the easiest way to gradually chip away at Trump’s spirit.
