Two Anniversaries for June 1

It was 3 years ago today that Johann Santana pitched the only no hitter in the history of the New York Mets.  I hope Met fans will not have to wait another 50 years to see another one.  I wrote an entry in Bruce's Journal the next day.

It was 48 years ago today that Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was first released.  I bought it on vinyl within a month of release.  I graduated from Forest Hills High School that month as well.  On June 1, 1987 I went to the Record Explosion on 5th Avenue and 36th Street and bought the CD version.  I sure loved that record store and spent many lunch hours there when I worked at NYPL at 5th Avenue and 42nd Street.
