On this day

On this day in 1931, Cab Calloway recorded his massive hit "Minnie the Moocher". It was the first jazz record to sell a million copies and taught everyone to sing "hi de hi de hi de ho."

Outside of Australia or even the Commonwealth, I might not be well known, but to indigenous people of Australia I became a household name. The legendary court case defined Aboriginality and bares my name colloquially.
