Sunday April 08, 1984

US date format: 4/8/1984, UK date format: 8/4/1984

It was Sunday, under the sign of Aries (see birth chart on April 8, 1984). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Kirsten Storms and Ezra Koenig. In that special week of April people in US were listening to Footloose by Kenny Loggins. In UK Hello by Lionel Richie was in the top 5 hits. Iceman, directed by Fred Schepisi, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1984 while The Aquitaine Progression by Robert Ludlum was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Auf einem langen Weg. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Micro League Baseball or Diamond Mine.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
