Friday 11 September 1987

It was Friday, under the sign of Virgo. The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Clément Chantôme and Susianna Kentikian. In that special week of September people in US were listening to La Bamba by Los Lobos. Hellraiser, directed by Clive Barker, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1987 while Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Black Adder the Third. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Blades of Steel Konamic Ice Hockey or Hi no Tori Hououhen: Gaou no Bouken.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
