The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald – 30 years ago today

The sinking of the SS Edmund Fitzgerald – November 10, 1975
The SS Edmund Fitzgerald sank in Lake Superior 20 years ago. Gordon Lightfoot’s song “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” (1976, Moose Music, Ltd.) is a tribute to this ship wreck and the men who lost their lives.

  1. No, but I’ll check it out. It seems that Doc Searls noted the anniversary too. I had heard about it on my favorite radio station, WPKN. It was also Sesame Street’s 36th anniv. Funny thing is, I was 3 years old then and watched it for a long time after that–even got to see Bob and Susan sing at the Oakdale Theater. Now Sesame Street has lowered their targeted audience to a lot younger. My older kids (7 & 5) won’t watch it.
