On this day, March 12:

1933 – Franklin D. Roosevelt addressed the nation for the first time as President of the United States. This was the first of his "fireside chats". Let's have a timely fireside chat with Lucifer with music from Sun Ra.

1968 – Mauritius achieved independence from the United Kingdom. Strut and Born Bad have recently unearthed music from 1970s Mauritius.

1917 – Lejzor Szmuel Czyż aka. Leonard Chess (1917-69) was born. The Polish-American was born in Motal, now in Belarus, and founded Chess Records in 1950. The label had many offshoots including Checker, Cadet, and Cadet Concept.

That is monumental, Eddy. Best wishes. Perhaps you would more accurately pronounce "Lejzor Szmuel Czyż" than my attempt coming up in the second hour.
