What happened in May, 1975?

May 3: "He Don't Love You (Like I Love You)" by Tony Orlando and Dawn topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart and remained there for three weeks...



May 4: Moe Howard, leader and last survivor of The Three Stooges, died...



May 10: Now you can record TV shows! The Betamax home videotaping system was introduced by Sony with the LV-1901 going on sale in Japan. The unit, which contained a color TV, the recorder, and the tapes, retailed for $2,488 (equivalent to more than $9,000 USD in 2010)...



May 11: A crowd of about 75,000 people in New York City's Central Park celebrated the end of the Vietnam War. Organized by Phil Ochs, the rally included music performances by Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, and Paul Simon...



And, in all likelihood, in May, 1975 some of you Bitches were up to no good.

  8. 1975 ? Can't remember, sorry. Maybe I discovered sparkling wine.

    And I see you invited Prince Harry over. Is this ginger festivity taking place at other locations too ?

    1. MAGO: Apparently, ginger events are happening all over the world at different times of the year.

      So if you’re a redhead with a lot of spending money, you can make an international circuit of these events.

    2. Strangely no redhead event in Canada, as someone already mentioned.
