Carson Time Capsule... Tuesday, February 16th.


In the time capsule today…

We find a fantasy adventure comedy film directed by Rob Reiner. The Princess Bride was not a major box-office success, but it became a cult classic after its release to the home video market.

We find televangelist Jim Bakker, head of PTL Ministries, resigning after admitting an affair with church secretary Jessica Hahn. And that just the start of the trouble… with subsequent revelations of accounting fraud, leading to imprisonment and divorce.

And we find a song on the radio performed by Club Nouveau. The single is a cover of the Bill Withers song which topped the charts in 1972. To the surprises of Bill, he won a Grammy for the Club Nouveau version… for Best R&B Songwriter.

What is the year? (answer below).
