» Soap rationing ended on this day in 1950. So why do some people still smell funny?
» Pet Shop Boy Neil Tennant is 49 today. His eventful life has seen him edit Marvel comics, interview Madonna for Smash Hits, and write a song for Kylie Minogue that she released on her 1994 album, minus the tune. Stupid cow.
» Never Forget, sang Take That. And we've remembered Jason Orange's 33rd birthday today. So, in a very real sense, we never have.
» Clumsy Bill Wyman fell off the stage at a concert in 1978.
» Mel Blanc, voice of Bugs Bunny and about a million others, died on this day in 1989.
