Birthdays For October 29th + Frankenstein Day
If this is your birthday or anniversary, congratulations! Here are some events that have happened on this date in country music.
1956-Charley Pride pitches four innings of shutout ball, as the Negro League All-Stars beat the Major League All-Stars, including Hank Aaron and Willie Mays, 4-2.
1983-Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton spend the first of two weeks at #1 in Billboard with "Islands In The Stream".
This Is Frankenstein Day!
There are three known "days', and as a result, a little confusion. We have Frankenstein Friday, National Frankenstein Day, and Frankenstein Day.
Frankenstein Day is on August 30. This day is in honor of author Mary Wollenstone Shelley who was born on August 30,1797. She wrote the book "Frankenstein "in 1818.
Frankenstein Friday is the last Friday in October. Originally, we traced some references back to a website on Frankenberry cereal, which suggests a commercial origin.
National Frankenstein Day Google posts this as October 29th.
If you are still confused, then, do what we all do best and celebrate all three days!
Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
