March 9th

1969 – CBS cancels The Smothers Brothers’ Comedy Hour, a variety show notable for its satiric humor and musical appearances by the Beatles, the Doors, and the Who. The program came under fire when guest Joan Baez used her appearance to publicize the predicament of her husband, who had been arrested for objecting to the draft.

1972 – Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern gains some pop power when James Taylor, Carole King, and Barbra Streisand perform at a benefit concert for him. Nixon wins anyway. Allen Klein, the former Stones and Beatles manager who organized the concerts for Bangladesh, finally turns over a tenth of the $1.2 million proceeds from the resulting live album to UNICEF. He’s been accused of using the relief organization to launder money.

1987 – U2 release their breakthrough album, The Joshua Tree. It takes the Irish quartet to a new level of stardom.

2006 – Michael Jackson is ordered to shut down his Neverland Ranch after California’s Department of Industrial Relations rule he failed to pay his employees or upkeep their worker’s compensation insurance.
