Carson Time Capsule... Wednesday, October 7th.


In the capsule today…

We find the debut of the Oprah Winfrey Show. It becomes one of the highest-rated daytime talk shows in television history.

We find a science-fiction horror film starring Jeff Goldblum and Geena Davis. After one of his experiments goes wrong, an eccentric scientist slowly turns into an insect, in “The Fly!”

And we find a song on the radio by Phil Collins. Sting and Peter Gabriel sing backup vocals. "Take Me Home" was written from the perspective of a patient in a mental institution, inspired by the novel “One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.”
