On this day – November 11

Posted on: Wed 11 Nov 2020

In 1918, World War I ended with Germany signing an armistice agreement. On 11:11AM this day each year, we commemorate the people whose lives and livelihoods were lost.

In 1965, The Velvet Underground performed their debut paid performance at a high-school dance. Being paid $75, this saw the former drummer, Angus MacLise, be replaced by Maureen Tucker.

Producer Leon Bishop joins Breakfast’s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to elaborate on these events from history.
