Friday August 12, 1988

US date format: 8/12/1988, UK date format: 12/8/1988

It was Friday, under the sign of Leo (see birth chart on August 12, 1988). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Leah Pipes and Tyson Fury. In that special week of August people in US were listening to Roll With It by Steve Winwood. In UK The Only Way Is Up by Yazz & The Plastic Population was in the top 5 hits. Crossing Delancey, directed by Joan Micklin Silver, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1988 while Libra by Don DeLillo was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Luv Kush. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Blasted or The Final Round.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
