1980: Annunzio Paolo Mantovani, the English-Italian conductor and light orchestra-styled entertainer known simply as Mantovani, dies at the age of 74 in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England. Mantovani was Britain's most successful album act before The Beatles, known for his "cascading strings" effect. Between 1955 and 1972, he released more than 40 albums in the United States, with 27 reaching the Top 40.
