For the day that's in it...

Before Beyonce, the Rolling stones or the Beatles; before Elvis, Sinatra or Crosby; there was John McCormack the pop star and musical favorite of our Grandparents' generation. During World War I, his recording of "Keep the Home Fires Burning" sold in the millions and his name spread through the printed media in a manner similar to celebrity tweets. Of course, his records were different to the downloads of today, or even the 45s of yesterday, but the 78s of the 1910s - which were single sided like the one in the picture - were the one-century-ago equivalent of today's 'tracks'.

"I see thy face in every dream,
My waking thoughts are full of thee
Thy glance is in the starry beam
That falls along the summer sea."
