Carson Time Capsule... Thursday, February 4th.

In the capsule today…

We find an action thriller in theaters starring Bruce Willis. Bruce initially turned down the lead role due to his commitments to Moonlighting. However, when his co-star Cybill Shepherd became pregnant, show production was paused for 11 weeks, which allowed time to shoot “Die Hard.”

We find Candice Bergen starring in a new TV comedy series. Candice played the eponymous Murphy Brown, an investigative journalist and anchor for fictional TV newsmagazine FYI.

And we find a song on the radio by The Whispers. “Rock Steady” was written and produced by L.A. Reid and Babyface. And on success of the track, the two formed LaFace Records a year later... eventually signing megastars TLC, Toni Braxton, OutKast, Pink and more.

What is the year? (answer below).
