On this day in history ...

Longtime readers of National Capital Rock will, of course, be aware that on this date Orkney and Shetland were annexed by Scotland; that the Tyrolean patriot and rebel Andreas Hofer was executed on Napoleon's orders; that Concepcion, Chile was reduced to rubble by a terrible earthquake; that the Avro Arrow program was cancelled - yes, it is a day of horror and infamy (well, not really, but as a newspaperman I feel obliged to print the nasty stuff). But more important than all that historical stuff, it's the first anniversary of National Capital Rock!

Mmmm ... cupcakes.
