In the capsule today…
We find a film directed by Francis Ford Coppola about a family business. It’s widely considered to be the best movie of all time. Marlon Brando and Al Pacino star… in The Godfather.
We find a new pay television service being launched. Home Box Office was intended as a "working title," with the belief that management would come up with a different name later. Instead the name HBO stuck.
And we find a song on the radio by Steely Dan. It’s the band’s least favorite song… with Donald Fagan saying, "It's dumb but effective." Walter Becker added, "It's no fun." However, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page likes it. He said the song has his favorite guitar solo of all time!
What is the year? (answer below).
The year... 1972!
