Wednesday July 09, 1980

US date format: 7/9/1980, UK date format: 9/7/1980

It was Wednesday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on July 9, 1980). The US president was Jimmy Carter (Democrat). Famous people born on this day include Jodi Arias and Kathia Rodriguez. In that special week of July people in US were listening to Coming Up by Paul McCartney. Caddyshack, directed by Harold Ramis, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1980 while Anatomy Of An Illness by Norman Cousins was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Coming Home. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Astro Fighter or Horse Racing.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
