In the capsule today…
We find a tragic helicopter accident on the set of “Twilight Zone: The Movie.”
We find the introduction to the compact disc. The original playing time was supposed to be 60 minutes… but the then vice-president of Sony wanted 74 minutes of playing time to accommodate his favorite recording of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.
And we find a song on the radio by Marvin Gaye. Songwriter David Ritz gave Marvin the idea for the song after noticing his large pornography collection. The collection so disturbed David that he suggested Marvin get some "Sexual Healing."
