From The Harry Chapin Wiki
On this day:
- 1972 - The New York Times published the first of two rather scathing reviews of a musical performance by baritone Martin Tubridy. These reviews would come to be the basis of Harry Chapin's song Mr. Tanner.
- 2012 - Phil Kaufmann performs Cotton Patch Gospel at Starved Rock State Park, Illinois. The performance is a unique one-man show with other characters provided via a multimedia backdrop. This event part of a larger series of benefits in the Cotton Patch Gospel Food Project.
