In the capsule today…
We find former pop star Sonny Bono being elected mayor of Palm Springs, California.
We find the supernatural slasher film “Child’s Play” in theaters. The movie stars a toy doll named Chucky, who is possessed by the soul of a serial killer!
And we find a song on the radio by UB40. The song was actually released years prior, until an Arizona radio DJ played “Red Red Wine” on his "Would've Been, Should've Been" feature. The song got such a popular response that the record company decided to re-release the single… and it went to number one on the charts!
