(Enkele dagen later op 15 december 1891 bedenkt de Canadees James Naismith een nieuw spel waar behendigheid tussen de spelers belangrijker moet zijn dan kracht. Het spel gaat erom dat je een bal in een hoog doel moet gooien en hij noemt het basketbal. Naismith is werkzaam als gymnastiekleraar op de YMCA International Training School in Springfield, Massachusetts. In de winter van 1891 krijgt hij van de schoolleiding opdracht een spel te verzinnen voor de scholieren. Vanwege de strenge winter is het spelen van buitensporten namelijk niet mogelijk. Uiteindelijk bevestigt hij twee perzikmanden aan het balkon op ieder eind van de gymzaal en komt met 13 regels om het spel te spelen. Naismith stelt twee teams van negen spelers samen, elk moet proberen een voetbal in de mand te mikken.)

(Enkele dagen later op 17 december 1903 maken de broers Wilbur en Orville Wright met hun Flyer 1 voor het eerst in de geschiedenis een gemotoriseerde vlucht. Dit is het begin van de moderne luchtvaart. Na dertig meter komt de Flyer al weer terug op de grond. De vlucht is wel kort, maar historisch! Voor het eerst is het gelukt om te vliegen met een toestel dat zwaarder is dan lucht. De broers zijn fietsenmakers van beroep in Dayton, Ohio.)

Ringo - Lorne Greene

(vandaag 52 jaar geleden)
(Don Robertson; Hal Blair)
(Producer: Joe Reisman)

{Nostalgia Classic Song op radiostation KEZW Studio 1430 AM Denver, Colorado}

(In 1964 ziet het er naar uit dat Radio Veronica haar monopoliepositie als zendschip gaat verliezen want in Engeland gaat men ook met “etherpiraterij” beginnen. Niet alleen zendschepen, maar ook booreilanden en forten worden gebruikt om het geluid van de zee te kunnen overstemmen met muzikale ethergolven. Op 28 maart 1964 startte Ronan O’Rahilly als eerste vanaf de Frederika voor de Engelse kust bij Felixstowe met Radio Caroline op 199 meter in de middengolf. Vandaag precies 46 jaar geleden op 5 december 1964 begint vanaf de voormalige Amerikaanse mijnenveger Galaxy de testuitzendingen van Radio London op 266 meter in de middengolf. Het zendschip ligt in internationale wateren voor de kust bij Essex in de Noordzee. Op 23 december 1964 beginnen de reguliere uitzendingen van Radio London. De grote kracht van de Engelse radiostations is de uiterst relaxte manier van programmapresentatie, waarbij de taal een belangrijke rol speelt, maar ook het veelvuldig gebruik van jingles.)
