AprilEight-Track Tape Day
- dedicated to bring back the fond memories of the sixties and seventies.

The 8-track tape, originally called the Stereo 8, was created in 1964 by a consortium led by Bill Lear of Lear Jet Corporation, along with Ampex, Ford, Motorola and RCA Victor Records, and was made popular by the inclusion of 8-track players in Ford automobiles in 1965. 8-tracks were being phased out in the US by 1982, but were still available through record clubs as late as 1988.

International "Louie Louie" Day
- Songwriter and musician Berry was born on April 11, 1935. Berry recorded the original "Louie, Louie" song with the Pharaohs, and released it in 1957. The song was a "catchy, somewhat calypso diddy that was originally intended as the B-side for his recording of 'You Are My Sunshine'" according to LouieLouie. Source
