Today in history

On this day in 1964, Bobby Vinton—”the Polish Prince”—was enjoying the ninth top-40 hit of his young career with “There! I’ve Said Again.”

Not only was this the third Number 1 single for Vinton in a span of just 18 months, but it was the second (after “Blue Velvet”) with a song that was older than many of his fans.

Here’s the rest of the story:



Today — Partly cloudy. Highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s. West winds 10 to 20 mph in the afternoon.

Tonight — Partly cloudy. Lows 15 to 25. West winds 10 to 20 mph.
