Hans Remembers- Wednesday October 28, 1970- 50 Years Ago.

  • U.S. Army Captain Jeffrey R. MacDonald is released from incarceration at Fort Bragg, North Carolina after his commanding officer dismissed charges of murder against MacDonald for the murder of his wife and two daughters. This story wasn’t over- MacDonald would be arrested again in 1975 after being indicted for the murders by a North Carolina grand jury. The case would later be the subject of the best selling book by Joe McGinnis- Fatal Vision -and a television miniseries of the same name. MacDonald is now 77 and still in prison- in Cumberland, Maryland.
  • In Jordan the government of Ahmad Toukan resigned. King Hussein named Wasfi al-Tal as the new prime minister.
  • Pulitzer Prize winning Japanese photographer Kyoichi Sawada 36 was executed by Khmer Rouge guerrillas in Cambodia.

    • The Ballad of John and Yoko [I like -The Battle of John and Yoko” better!–} was never #1 in the US- but it was #1 in the UK- in the UK Get Back was #1 for 6 weeks- then Dizzy by Tommy Roe was #1 for 1 week and then came The Ballad of John and Yoko- so they were close to being back to back..

  1. Thanks Hans, i appreciate you getting back to me. I read that Ritchie Cordell holds the rare distinction (shared only with the Beatles) of having two of his songs ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ sung by Billy Idol and ‘MONY MONY’ sung by Tiffany follow one another in the #1 & # 2 positions in Billboard, and the next week reverse positions. I was curious what these two Beatles songs were and I figured that you might know.
