First, we talk about the incredible Joni Mitchell November 7, 1943), who at 78, seems to be making a significant comeback!

Finally, we look at the opening (or birth) of the most famous recording studio in the world, at 3 John Street in London. That studio, which was bought in 1929 and opened its doors in 1931. Sir Edward Elgar recorded his famous "Land Of Hope And Glory" there in 1931, but we know it because of The Fab Four.
