See what Andrew Salciunas found in The Audio Vault today. Including some important Birthday of Philly greats like Eric Allen and Greg Luzinski, the debut of Toy Story, and more. Here is the lineup from The Audio Vault today.
Happy Birthday Eric Allen
It is the birthday of Eagles’ great Eric Allen. Allen deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. Over 14 seasons in the NFL, 7 with the Eagles, he racked up 54 interceptions, 8 of which he took the other way for a TD. And Andrew grabbed one of those pick 6s from the Audio Vault and played it for us today.
Happy Birthday Greg Luzinski
Speaking of Philly greats, it is also Greg Luzinski’s birthday. The Bull was an integral part of the 1980 World Series team. And to celebrate his birthday, Andrew pulled one of his many home runs for the Phillies out of the Vault, as called by Harry Kalas.
Ali Defends His Heavyweight Title
On this day in 1965, Muhammad Ali defended his World Heavyweight Title vs Floyd Patterson. Ali won in the 12th Round by TKO. And Andrew grabbed some audio from that fight to play in THher Vault today.
The Debut of Toy Story
On this day in 1995 Toy Story was released in theaters. It was the first feature-length movie from Pixar and was an instant classic. It spawned multiple sequels and spinoffs. But it all started in 1995 with the original movie about toys that come to life when their kid is not around. And from the Vault, Andrew played both the main theme song of the movie as performed by Randy Newman and an iconic scene from the movie where Woody screams at Buzz Lightyear that he is a toy.
Santa Claus Is Coming To Town Debuts
On this day in 1934, Eddie Cantor debuted the song “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” The song has gone on to be covered by many artists, including Bruce Springsteen, but in its original form, as sung by Cantor on his radio show, it sounded a bit different. And Andrew pulled that original recording from the Audio Vault, so we could hear it today.
