Irving Berlin and Chuck Berry! Saturday Night Music of America!

3-18-17 8:00 PM EST: A few of us might learn something new tonight. It's possible. We already know a lot, but there's always room for more. First, did you know that today is the day, back in 1911, that Irving Berlin copyrighted his song, "Alexander's Ragtime Band"? It is. History.com said so. In fact here's the interesting write-up in their March 18th "Today in History" piece.

"If There is No God, Murder Isn't Wrong!" Right? Prager University.

3-21-17 7:26 PM EST: As most of you know by now, Prager University offers at least one new video per week on basic conservative principles and why the conservative ideology is the wise, efficient, prudent, intelligent, and all around best way to go, especially when compared to modern liberalism and/or progressivism...also known as stupidity.

March 19, 1957 Elvis Presley Puts a Down Payment on Graceland

3-19-17 12:07 PM EST: "In the spring of 1957, Elvis Presley was completing his second Hollywood movie, Loving You, and his first movie soundtrack album. He had two studio albums and 48 singles already under his belt and two years of nearly nonstop live appearances behind him. If his life had taken a different path, the spring of 1957 might have seen Elvis Presley filling out law school applications or interviewing for his first job as college graduation approached. But the hardworking son of Gladys and Vernon Presley was already his family’s primary breadwinner in the spring of 1957, and already looking, at the tender age of 22, to purchase them a new home for the second time. He found that home on the outskirts of Memphis—a southern Colonial mansion on a 13.8-acre wooded estate. With a $1,000 cash deposit against a sale price of $102,500, Elvis Presley agreed to purchase the home called Graceland on March 19, 1957.
