    Born on this Day in History: May 8, 1940 - American singer and songwriter Rick Nelson was an early teen idol who acted out his real-life childhood on "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet." He began to conclude each episode with a song from his band and quickly became popular as a musician. He went on to produce a number of albums, and owned the music charts for a three-year period from 1957 through 1959 with his hit songs.

    On this Day in History: May 8, 1902 - Mt. Peleé erupts on the West Indies island of Martinique. A wall of superheated ash and rock cascades down the slopes, slamming directly into the community of Saint Pierre. The shockwave and intense heat even manage to destroy twenty ships in the harbor. Only two of the town's 28,000 residents survive the cataclysm.
