Westinghouse, a leading manufacturer of radios and the backer of the station, chose the date because of the Presidential election.

Four years later, there were 600 commercial stations broadcasting in the U.S.

In 1970, this person was 50 years old when on May 4th, four students at Kent State University in Ohio were shot and killed by National Guardsmen. The students were at a peaceful demonstration protesting the invasion of Cambodia by US forces. There had been precedent for the killing of American college students. The previous year, on May 15th, Alameda County Sheriffs used shotguns against U.C. Berkeley students at a protest for People's Park. One student died, one was blinded, 128 were injured.

In 1983, this person was 63 years old when physicist Sally K. Ride, 32, became the first US woman astronaut in space as a crew member aboard space shuttle Challenger on June 18th. She was also the youngest (32) astronaut to go into space. Soviet cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova was the first woman in space in 1963.

In 1990, Alvo was 70 years old when on April 24th, the Hubble telescope was launched into space after long delays due to the Challenger explosion.
