The Charleston Courier March 19, 1836 Newspaper

Today I have for you a newspaper from 1836.  It is the same publication that I spotlighted last month ... The Charleston Courier.  It is specifically from March 19, 1836.  I am a bit late with this one being that the 19th was over a week ago.  The issue features slave ads and much, much more including references to the Saint Patrick's Day celebration.  Here are some photographs ...

Tanning On March 12, 2015!!!!

It was a sunny day and the temperature was at a substantial increase to 45 or 46 degrees so I decided to do a little bit of tanning.  I had my face and arms exposed to get some Vitamin D ... being a vegan, the sun is a key source of Vitamin D.

My First 2015 Coin In 2015

It is March 9, 2015.  I have been wanting to do this kind of video and blog entry for a while.  The question is, if you can understand it, what is the earliest date that you were able to get your hands on a coin from that specific year?  It is 2015 - have you seen a coin yet from this year?  I ended up getting one in change a few days ago on March 6 I believe.  Next year I am going to see if I can break that record. This is a fun and challenging game for you to try.

Sweet Stuff By Donald Lindley 1925 Columbia Records

Hello.  This is Michael.  You are listening to Early Music Radio: Cylinders And 78s With Michael Mike.  It is March 7, 2015 and this evening I have for you "Sweet Stuff" by Donald Lindley.  The song features a trumpet solo by Lindley with piano accompaniment by, I believe, Arthur Schutt.  The record was pressed on the Columbia label (Catalog number: 546-D).  You can see a couple of splotches on the label ... it certainly is not any of my sweet stuff.  Lindley is credited as the sole writer of the track.  It was recorded on New Years Eve, December 31, 1925.  I am going to play the record on a Brunswick Portable Gramophone Model 101.  This machine was manufactured in the 1920s.  I am going to use a medium tone steel needle.
