Carson Time Capsule... Wednesday, April 14th.


In the time capsule today…

We find Gerald Ford becoming the 38th president in the ninth non-scheduled inauguration since the founding of the United States.

We find a new Muppet on Sesame Street. Don Music was a composer who would bang his head against a piano when things didn’t go right. The character was abandoned after reports of children imitating him.

And we find a song on the radio by Elton John. Songwriter Bernie Taupin said the song lyrics are a satire on the greed and glitz of music industry. Elton was set against releasing it as a single, believing it would fail. “Bennie And The Jets” ended up being one of their most popular.
