Monday June 23, 1986

US date format: 6/23/1986, UK date format: 23/6/1986

It was Monday, under the sign of Cancer (see birth chart on June 23, 1986). The US president was Ronald Reagan (Republican), the UK Prime Minister was Margaret Thatcher (Conservative), Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. In that special week of June people in US were listening to On My Own by Patti LaBelle. In UK Spirit In The Sky by Doctor & The Medics was in the top 5 hits. Club Paradise, directed by Harold Ramis, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1986 while Bus 9 To Paradise by Leo Buscaglia was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Grand Prix der Volksmusik. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Might and Magic Book One: The Secret Of The Inner Sanctum or Glider Rider.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
