(Enkele dagen later op 27 mei 1948 komt de Walt Disney-film Melody Time uit. Donald Duck voert een aantal jazzy capriolen uit als de ster van Swingen op de samba. Muziek wordt een echt avontuur voor de bezige bij in Hommel-boogie. Van de ondeugende jonge sleepboot in Kleine Toet tot de helden van de legenden en mythen in Jantje Appelpit en Pecos Bill is dit een geestig en charmant feest voor ogen en oren.)

(Edward Wallerstein, de directeur van de Amerikaanse platenmaatschappij Columbia Records, geeft op 18 juni 1948 een demonstratie van de langspeelplaat. Deze nieuwe vorm voor de vinyl-plaat is uitgevonden door Peter Goldmark. Hij is werkzaam in het laboratorium van Columbia. Binnen één jaar worden er zo’n drieëneenhalf miljoen LP’s verkocht. Concurrenten als Decca en Capitol kunnen niet achterblijven. Ook zij brengen sinds 1949 LP’s uit. RCA-Victor gaat in 1950 over op deze productie van 33 ¹/з toerenplaten.)

(Drie dagen later op 25 mei 1965 kondigen Roel van Duijn, Martijn Lindt en Rob Stolk de oprichting van de Provobeweging aan. Onder invloed van anti-rookmagier Robert Jan Grootveld gaan de activiteiten van Provo bestaan uit een combinatie van magische straathappenings en anarchistische provocaties van het gezag. Op 12 juli 1965 verschijnt het eerste nummer van het blad Provo, met daarin recepten voor zelf te vervaardigen bommen en een klappertje. Na 1 week wordt het blad in beslag genomen. Ongeveer een derde van de provo-publicaties zal voortaan worden verboden. In 1969 komt Roel van Duijn voor Provo in de Amsterdamse gemeenteraad en vervolgens voor Kabouterstad Amsterdam. Van Duijn wordt in 1973 lid van de PPR en wordt in september 1974 wethouder voor die partij.)
