Further evidence this day in history has been busier than most. Hard to believe it’s been four years since the tragic news came that Pop Icon Michael Jackson had died. An already troubled figure working on what would have been a comeback tour, the finale came in the guise of a drug overdose, and a storm of questions amid the sorrow that another celebrated and much-loved figure in the world of Pop Music had gone in a way far too many had before him.
But also on this day, taking a distant backseat, was the news of another Pop-Culture icon, Farrah Fawcett who succumbed to a long ordeal with Cancer at the age of 62 only hours earlier. Fawcett was probably best known as one of Charlie’s Angels in the hit TV series, as well as one of the more popular pinups of the 70s whose trademark hairstyle made her one of the most imitated of that decade.
Fawcett had died around 9 that morning, on the 25th of June. The news on Michael Jackson would come around 3:30 that afternoon.
Here are both news reports from June 25, 2009 via KNX in Los Angeles and KCBS, San Francisco.
