Thursday April 24, 1980

US date format: 4/24/1980, UK date format: 24/4/1980

It was Thursday, under the sign of Taurus (see birth chart on April 24, 1980). The US president was Jimmy Carter (Democrat). Famous people born on this day include Denise Milani and Austin Nichols (actor). In that special week of April people in US were listening to Call Me by Blondie. In UK Working My Way Back To You / Forgive Me Girl by The Detroit Spinners was in the top 5 hits. On the Nickel, directed by Ralph Waite, was one of the most viewed movies released in 1980 while Who'S On First by William F. Buckley Jr was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching The Stockard Channing Show. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Rogue or Rescue at Rigel.
But much more happened that day: find out below..
