Carson Time Capsule... Friday, October 9th.


In the capsule today…

We find Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious dead at age 21.

We find the debut of a 24 hours a day cable sports channel, the Entertainment Sports Programming Network, known as ESPN.

And we find a song on the radio by The Bee Gees. Barry Gibb wanted a thunderclap sound in the mix for "Tragedy," so he cupped his hands over a microphone and made the explosion noise with his mouth.

What is the year? (answer below).
