Tonight on the show, we are headed back in our DeLorean to 1985.
“Back to the Future” was the highest-grossing film. Ronald Reagan began his second term as U.S. President. Mikhail Gorbachev was appointed as Soviet Premier after the death of Konstantin Chernenko. Actor Rock Hudson would become the first celebrity to acknowledge that he had AIDS. “We Are the World” and “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” helped raise awareness on the world around us, especially in Africa. “The Cosby Show” was the # 1 show on television, and won big at the Emmys. “Miami Vice” helped popularize both music and fashion.

Tonight on the show, we are headed back in our DeLorean to 1985.
“Back to the Future” was the highest-grossing film. Ronald Reagan began his second term as U.S. President. Mikhail Gorbachev was appointed as Soviet Premier after the death of Konstantin Chernenko. Actor Rock Hudson would become the first celebrity to acknowledge that he had AIDS. “We Are the World” and “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” helped raise awareness on the world around us, especially in Africa. “The Cosby Show” was the # 1 show on television, and won big at the Emmys. “Miami Vice” helped popularize both music and fashion. Magic's Lakers beat Larry's Celtics in the NBA Finals in six games, and "That Team Up North" beat the B*ckeyes in the Big House, after the B*ckeyes got upset by Wisconsin, following an upset of # 1-ranked Iowa at the Shoe. The Columbus Citizen-Journal Newspaper was laid to rest, after attempts to buy the fledgling newspaper came up millions of dollars short.
