The third of June brings to mind “Ode to Billie Joe”. I’ve always thought about putting together a list of songs that refer to a specific date.

June 3—Ode to Billie Joe

I think it must be because the grammar gave her the heebie-jeebies. "Richmond had fell," indeed.

By May the 10th, Richmond had fell.
It's a time I remember, oh so well.

Great suggestions, keep 'em coming. I'm making a list and will post it when this thread runs out.

I've started a sub list of songs mentioning days of the week. Feed free to mention those, too.

One that I can still hear echoing down the halls at WJMA also mentions the third of June: Desiree by Neil Diamond.

In the fall of 1973, Chet was a senior at Washington and Lee, older than most after a stint in Vietnam. I remember how he already had a shock of grey hair. I was a freshman broadcast wanna-be who was alone in the campus radio newsroom the afternoon of October 10.

Suddenly, the large teletype machines came alive with bells ringing like I had heard they did for important bulletins. I ran to see the single alert that Vice President Spiro Agnew had resigned as part of a plea agreement with criminal prosecutors.

I was almost frozen with fear. What do I do? Almost before I could act, Chet Burgess appeared. He ran in knowing what had happened and firmly but calmly directed me.

Even then I was aware he could have pushed this 18-year-old freshman aside and done it himself, but he kept me in the middle. We prepared our story, and he directed me to the anchor chair while he ran the board. I announced the VP's resignation in what even today I remember as a shaky monotone voice.

When I was done, he simply said, "Good job." and then handed me a small box containing a reel- to-reel audio tape. Chet had somehow had the foresight to realize he should roll a tape on a historically significant announcement and give it to me as a memento of my first "big one." I still have that audio tape in its box almost 42 years later.

CNN launched 35 years ago on June 1, 1980. Among the CNN employees on day one was Chet Burgess. Chet had stated the WJMA news department in 1974. In the Fall of 1976 he left to take a job with WTAR radio and TV in Norfolk. In February 1980 Chet and Bonnie moved to Atlanta to help launch CNN. Here’s a picture of Chet anchoring an early newscast at CNN. http://www.wjma.radiohistory.net/WJMA%20photos/WJMA%20people/pages/page_101.html

 

During his 20 years at CNN he did many things: copy edittor, anchor, supervising producer, executive producer of live programming and environmental coverage, executive producer of interactive programming and technology project manager in the CNN R&D unit. He was executive producer in the live CNN control room during the Gulf War, the Tainanmen Square massacre in Beijing, the "people power" revolution in the Philippines and various plane crashes over the years. Chet wrote the initial business plan for "CNN Online" in 1993 that grew into cnn.com, and spent the last five years there creating interactive connections between CNN's television and online operations. 

 

The “TalkBack Live” interactive talk show (3 p.m weekday eatured the interactive connections he set up in 1993. He planned and produced the first web coverage of national political conventions in 1996, along with TV reports and live shots of the web activities at both conventions in San Diego and Chicago. Chet left CNN in mid-2000.

 

In this clip from the WJMA documentary “Now This…” Chet talks about how working at WJMA served him well when he stated at CNN. https://youtu.be/AG97hC04BBY

CNN launched 35 years ago on June 1, 1980. Among the CNN employees on day one was Chet Burgess. Chet had started the WJMA news department in 1974. In the Fall of 1976 he left to take a job with WTAR radio and TV in Norfolk. In February 1980 Chet and Bonnie moved to Atlanta to help launch CNN. Here’s a picture of Chet anchoring an early newscast at CNN. http://www.wjma.radiohistory.net/WJMA%20photos/WJMA%20people/pages/page_101.html

 

During his 20 years at CNN he did many things: copy edittor, anchor, supervising producer, executive producer of live programming and environmental coverage, executive producer of interactive programming and technology project manager in the CNN R&D unit. He was executive producer in the live CNN control room during the Gulf War, the Tainanmen Square massacre in Beijing, the "people power" revolution in the Philippines and various plane crashes over the years. Chet wrote the initial business plan for "CNN Online" in 1993 that grew into cnn.com, and spent his last five years there creating interactive connections between CNN's television and online operations. 

 

The “TalkBack Live” interactive talk show featured the interactive connections he set up in 1993. He planned and produced the first web coverage of national political conventions in 1996, along with TV reports and live shots of the web activities at both conventions in San Diego and Chicago. Chet left CNN in mid-2000.

Typos?  I didn’t see any typos.  At first I feared something had happened to Chet and then I realized it was the anniversary you were commemorating.  …I’m slowing down.  J
