Today in History: June 21st
Each day around 10:20 am and 2:20 pm we step into a time machine and take a look back. Who was born? What was going on in the world? What happened in music?
Today on June 21st...
In 1979-Chris Pratt was born! You know him from Guardians of the Galaxy, Jurassic World, The Lego Movie, and Parks & Recreation. He's the big 4-0 today!
In 1997-The New York Liberty defeated the Los Angeles Sparks in the first WNBA game.
In 2015- Likely thanks to Taylor Swift, Apple Music revised their payment policy that was allowing users to get a 3-month free trial without the artists being compensated for the streams. Tay-Tay withheld her then-new album, "1985" and wrote an open letter to Apple Music saying, "We don't ask you for free iPhones. Please don't ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation."
And that's what happened today in history.
