On this day in 1896, National Geographic magazine ran its first photo of a bare-breasted woman.  And on this same day in 1982, the Playboy Channel was launched.

- Causing sales of National Georgraphic magazine to plummet.   


Speaking of sales… coming soon “The Best of Dick Purtan - Volume 10”! It’s a compilation of “The Best Of” from my show in the last few years leading up to my retirement.  Your purchase of the CD will benefit two Michigan-based Military charities:  Honor Flight, which flies WWII vets to the memorial in Washington, DC and Operation Homefront which helps out veterans from wars - both past and present - and their families. Stay tuned for details!

Have a great day and I’ll see you back here Wednesday!
