HANS REMEMBERS- MONDAY SEPTEMBER 7, 1970- 50 YEARS AGO

MDA Jerry Lewis Telethon Coming To An End – CBS New York

Hans Remembers- Monday September 7, 1970- 50 Years Ago.

  • Labor Day 1970- for a few decades I always associated Labor Day with the Jerry Lewis Muscular Dystrophy Telethon- which Jerry hosted from 1966 to 1970- this was the 5th annual Labor Day Telethon. The all-time greatest moment in telethon history as far as entertainment goes- when Frank Sinatra reunited Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis on the 1976 telethon.
  • Fighting begins on this day between Arab guerrillas and government forces in Jordan.
  • Jockey Willie Shoemaker broke the record for jockey victories at Del Mar Race Track- topping Johnny Longdon’s record.
  • The oil tanker shop Irving Whale sand in the Gulf of St. Lawrence in Canada about 32 nautical miles northeast of North Cape, Prince Edward Island and 54 nautical miles southwest of Quebec’s Magdalen Islands.
