1984

Ronald Reagan is reelected in a landslide victory. Russian leader Andropov dies and is replaced by Chernenko. Indira Ghandi is assassinated. The Olympics were held in Los Angeles. Everyone is buying VCRS. We watched Ghostbusters, Beverly Hills Cop and The Karate Kid on the big screen and The Cosby Show, Cheers and Dynasty on the little one.

 

And we listened to:
