On Oct. 13, 1976, exactly 38 years ago Monday, Frederick A. Murphy, a CDC virologist and expert in photographing viruses peered into a microscope and saw what he describes today as a “dark beauty — [a] horror.” It was the Ebola virus — and it had never been seen until that moment.
Bob, I told you there would be consequences if I caught you pooping on my lawn again!

On this day in music history: October 4, 1980 - “Funkin’ For Jamaica (N.Y.)” by Tom Browne hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 4 weeks, also peaking at #9 on the Club Play chart on October 11, 1980. Written by Tom Browne and Toni Smith, it is the biggest hit for the former commercial pilot turned jazz trumpeter. Browne will come up with the initial idea for the song at his parents home, later collaborating with singer Toni Smith (not Chaka Khan, as she has often been misidentified as on this song) will write the lyrics for the song. Recorded at A&R Studios in New York City in early 1980, “Jamaica” features co-producer Dave Grusin ( piano), Marcus Miller (bass), Bobby Broom (guitar), Bernard Wright (synthesizers), Buddy Williams and Omar Hakim (drums) and Earl “Crusher” Bennett (percussion). Issued as the first single from his second album “Love Approach”, it will quickly become a smash on R&B radio. In spite of the records’ huge R&B chart success, it will be one of the few R&B chart toppers not to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. Over the years, “Funkin’ For Jamaica” will be sampled widely in Hip Hop and the song’s hooks interpolated into many R&B records, cementing its status as a Funk/R&B classic.
