Happy Days

The classic song "Happy Days Are Here Again" was first played by George Olsen at New York's Hotel Pennsylvania... on October 29th, 1929 -- the day (also known as "Black Tuesday") on which the stock market crashed, plunging America into the Great Depression.

[At the height of the Great Depression (in 1932), unemployment reached 25 percent -- and the unemployed had no recourse to unemployment insurance.]
