10/15/1966 (52 years ago today) - For the love of Motown...: It's the start of two weeks in a row at No. 1 for The Four Tops with "Reach Out I'll Be There", their second chart topping single here in the U.S. (first was "Sugar Pie Honey Bunch (I Can't Help Myself)" back in June, 1965)  -- "Reach Out..." was also their first No. 1 in England, becoming Motown's second U.K. chart-topper after The Supremes hit the top spot with "Baby Love" in late '64. Just maybe the greatest era of all time for 7-inch 45-rpm vinyl. We're quite serious about that...

10/15/1988 (30 years ago today) - Before we proceed, try to wrap your skulls around the fact that this one is three decades old!!!: Bon Jovi kick off four weeks at No. 1 with their fourth studio album "New Jersey", featuring five Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 singles, a feat that no other hard rock/glam metal release has ever beaten or equaled: "Born To Be My Baby", "Lay Your Hands On Me" and "Living In Sin" all went Top Ten, while both "Bad Medicine" and "I'll Be There For You" went to No. 1. Huge-ness!

10/15/1995 (23 years ago today) - Paul and Linda McCartney were guest voices on "The Simpsons" in an episode titled "Lisa The Vegetarian" -- The couple's stipulation for appearing was that Lisa's decision to become a vegetarian would be a permanent character change, to which producer David Mirkin agreed. Well, yeah...
