Other things that Frank likes to celebrate today include these folks born on this date, going from the oldest to the most recent:
- 480 BC Euripides, who in effect created the theatre later used by Shakespeare, Ibsen, and Shaw.
- 1215 Kublai Khan, who was rumoured to have built a Pleasure Dome in Xanadu.
- 1926 John Coltrane, who could play a saxophone like nobody's business.
- 1930 Ray Charles, who also played the sax and trombone but excelled on the piano, which allowed him to sing along with his music.
