This Day In History – September 2

1945

V-J Day 

Japan surrendered to the U.S. aboard the USS Missouri, ending World War II.

The war ended six years and one day after it began. 

1985

It was announced that the Titanic had been found by U.S. and French expedition 560 miles off Newfoundland. The expedition was led by Kansas native Robert Ballard.

The luxury liner had been missing for 73 years. 

1991

Garth Brooks‘ landmark album Ropin’ the Wind was released!

The broncs and the blood, the steers and the mud, and they call the thing rodeo! 

Such a great album!

2005 

Kanye West criticized President Bush’s response to Hurricane Katrina during a televised benefit concert in New York. Appearing alongside comedian Mike Myers for a 90-second segment on NBC, West told the audience, quote, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”

The comment went out live on the east coast, but was cut from a taped version seen on the west coast. So

and then lastly…

Four years ago already!

2010

Brooks & Dunn played their final show together at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

I saw these guys’ last rodeo tour show in Wichita, talk about TENSION & ANIMOSITY! I still do look forward to a reunion tour someday!
