In the capsule today…
We find a film about an airport manager attempting to keep his operation open in a snowstorm. The sequel to “Airport” would come 5 years later… and a classic parody version 5 years after that!
We find an adorable song by the Sesame Street character Ernie. "Rubber Ducky" received mainstream radio airplay, and made it to #16 on the Billboard Hot 100!
And we also find a song on the radio by Blues Image. Lead singer and songwriter Mike Pinera used the number 73 because there were 73 keys on his keyboard!
What is the year? (answer below).
The year... 1970!
