Amazing things about June 28:
» Titbits magazine closed in 1984, after 104 years of tits and bits.
» An edition of Radio 4's Gardener's Question Time was recorded before a nude audience at a nudist camp in 1998. Or so they claimed, anyway.
» Wham's farewell concert took place at Wembley on this day in 1986. Nick Hayward was the support act.
» Another Level called it a day in 2000, after carelessly losing half their members. Their songs, Bomb Diggy and, erm, the other ones, will live on forever.
» Jean Jacques Rousseau, the celebrated French philosopher, was born on this day in 1712. He coined the phrases "Man is born free, and everywhere he is in chains" and "Liberty, Equality Fraternity", on which the Three Colours film trilogy was based. More interestingly, he liked to wear a furry hat, and owned his own personal gondola.
» Adam Woodyat, alias Ian Fucking Beale, is 35 today. He shares his birthday with John Inman, of Are You Being Served fame. Also born on this day, in 1975, was Likely Lad of Lardams, the original Dulux dog. But it's dead now.
