Carson Time Capsule... Thursday, July 15th.

In the time capsule today…

We find the first issue of USA Today being published. The paper's style was derided by critics, who referred to it as a "McPaper." However, ten years later, it becomes the most read daily newspaper in the United States.

We find the first episode of Late Night with David Letterman on NBC. The show ran Monday through Thursday at 12:30 a.m., with the networks goal of capturing a young male audience.

And we find a song on the radio by Jackson Browne. Jackson wrote “Somebody's Baby” as a favor for his friend, screenwriter and director Cameron Crowe ,for the movie “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.”

What is the year? (answer below).
