Here’s a stunt after my own heart. It was on this day in 1972, that L.A. D.J. Robert W. Morgan played Donny Osmond’s “Puppy Love” for 90 minutes straight. Police eventually raided the station fearing foul play, but discovered a publicity stunt instead.

On this day in 1984 “Jump” by Van Halen was the #1 song.

And finally, just two years ago, we lost Toto’s bassist Mike Porcaro. He passed away from ALS at just 59. His brother Jeff, who was the drummer, had died years earlier at 38 from a combination of hardening of the arteries, cocaine use and inhalation of a pesticide.
