February 7, 2018 Record of the Day

On December 2, 1969 Cindy Birdsong of the Supremes was kidnapped by a maintenance man who lived in the building where she lived. With a knife at her throat, she jumped out of his car on the San Diego Freeway. The cops caught the kidnapper in Vegas four days later. You can imagine them saying, “Stop in the name of the law” while thinking of the Supremes’ giant hit “Stop in the Name of Love.” Released on Motown in 1965 the 45 is now worth up to $100.00 with its picture sleeve.
