newman asked: do you take requests? I'd love to see a nice clean image of the August 6,1984 cover on "The Video Revolution"
OK- I could be setting a dangerous precedent, but here goes:
On This Date In 1981, Walter Cronkite Signs Off The CBS Evening News
Nothing Cronkite has done in two decades of almost daily exposure has ever weakened our conviction that he genuinely cared about the world he brought us. “When the news is bad, Walter hurts,” says former CBS News president Fred Friendly. “When the news embarrasses America, Walter is embarrassed. When the news is humorous, Walter smiles with understanding.”

"Raiders of the Lost Ark" Opened On This Date In 1981
It’s the movie Hollywood was born to make, and was born making. It has buried treasures and Nazi villains, poison darts and mystical wraiths, damsels in distress and Arabian swordsmen, snake pits, submarines, booby-trapped jungle caverns, Himalayan taverns, Egyptian bazaars and an archaeologist hero with the grit of Bogart, the dash of Gable and the fearlessness of Superman. It’s called “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” and it’s about as pure an example of the Hollywood summer movie as anything since “Jaws” and “Star Wars.”
