Time to take a look back at this week in 80’s history!
It was this week in:
1982 – Jerry “The King” Lawler slapped Andy Kaufman on Late Night with David Letterman. The shocking scene would be a precursor of things to come as one of the first times the lines between fiction and reality were blurred as a pro wrestling angle became mainstream media.
1983 – National Lampoon’s Vacation premiered in theaters! One of my favorite 80’s comedies, it would go on to gross $61.4 Million at the box office that year and the reason “Holiday Road” by Lindsey Buckingham finds it’s way onto every road trip playlist I make.
