It’s funny to think that so many adults have never known a life where NBC’s late night comedy sketch program, Saturday Night Live did not exist, but it’s not so weird considering the show is currently celebrating its 40th year on the air. If you’re even a casual fan of the show and you live anywhere near NYC, you should make a point to see Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition, an independent and ridiculously comprehensive showcase collecting sets, props, photos, costumes, film clips and every type of random ephemera covering the show’s history, from the original Not Ready for Prime Time Players up to today.
Led Zeppelin released its fifth studio album, Houses of the Holy, on this date, March 28th, in 1973! It is the first Led Zeppelin album comprised of all original material. While a song entitled “Houses of the Holy” was recorded during sessions for this album, the song actually appears on the band’s sixth album, Physical Graffiti.
