Sheep-less Shepherds & Atlantic's Originator

Keep on rollin' as there's just a mile to go until the weekend. Let's jump for joy and take a moment to relive the past.

On this day

Happy Birthday Ahmet Ertegun

Plenty of music executives could claim the title of 'most influential', but it's hard to choose anyone other than Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records. When Led Zeppelin reunites as a tribute to your life, you might have the crown. He was born in Istanbul on this day in 1923.

Cybill Shepherd

After catching director Peter Bogdonavich's eye, Cybill Shephard's career took off in the 70s. Between Last Picture Show and Scorsese's Taxi Driver, she had quite the start.
