... the first commercial radio broadcast in Canada took place. The transmission was from Montreal to Ottawa.

We're getting a pair of commemorative stamps for the occasion. There's some interesting background in that story...

According to the news at the time, the first song ever aired on a commercial broadcast in Canada was a live performance of "Those Endearing Young Charms". (There's no indication in the article whether the Xylophone Gag was involved.)
