We find Mafia boss Paul Castellano shot dead in front of Spark's Steak House in New York… making hit organizer John Gotti the leader of the Gambino crime family.
We find the Tommy Hilfiger Corporation debuting its first clothing line with a high-profile marketing campaign, and iconic red white and blue logo.
And we find a song on the radio by Wham. George Michael was just 17 when he wrote “Careless Whisper.” The saxophone part was played by Steve Gregory, a recording-studio session player. Ten different sax players tried to do the solo, before Steve hit the sound Michael was looking for.
