Amazing things about June 14:
» Concerns were raised for Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Alyson Hannigan on her day off in 2000. Alyson, who played Willow, has spent the day looking around bookshops but, when her phone batteries died, rumours began to circulate that she had died too.
» Fourteen-year-old Carol Dryden was found packed in a tea chest at a Sunderland railway station in 1964. She was addressed to The Beatles, and was attempting to post herself to them. Appropriately, From Me To You was at No.1 for The Beatles on this day in 1963.
» Sandie Shaw represented Britain at the second Bratisalva International Festival of Pop Music. History does not record how she fared.
» Celebrity homosexualist birthdays galore! Paul O'Grady, alias Lily Savage, is 49. And Boy George is 42. In the non-bumming world, former Baywatch star Yasmine Bleeth is 35. And Che Cuevara, the face that launched a million crappy t-shirts, was born on this day in 1928.
