In the time capsule today…
We find a film about a widowed Italian-American woman who falls in love with her fiancé's hot-tempered younger brother. Cher and Nicolas Cage star… in Moonstruck!
We find the debut of Turner Network Television, known as TNT. It’s Ted Turner’s fifth basic cable channel. The first program is Gone with the Wind… chosen because it was Turner's favorite movie
And we find a song on the radio by INXS. The famous guitar riff came to Andrew Farriss the second he stepped into a cab headed to the airport. He asked the cab driver to wait a minute, raced back inside to record the riff, and returned an hour later to a still waiting cab.
