Friday February 12, 1982

US date format: 2/12/1982, UK date format: 12/2/1982

It was Friday, under the sign of Aquarius (see birth chart on February 12, 1982). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican). Famous people born on this day include Marie-Ève Marleau and Jonas Hiller. In that special week of February people in US were listening to Centerfold by The J. Geils Band. In UK A Town Called Malice / Precious by The Jam was in the top 5 hits. A Question of Silence, directed by Marleen Gorris, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1982 while No Time For Tears by Cynthia Freeman was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Brummkreisel. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Moon Patrol or Firebug.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
