Fun Facts About Buffalo from 1984 — The Bills, Weather, The Movies
Western New York meteorologists just LOVE meteorological records. They brag about them, they rejoice in them, they tweet about them, they revel in them.
There's a chance we could meet (or beat) a record high temperature today, which is 84 degrees (the forecast is 82). The crazy thing is that the record was set in 1984...and coincidentally, there have been about a million 1984 references today. All by sheer coincidence!
- In the Celebrity Fix, Madonna called the upcoming movie about her "lies" because they share a quote she claims she never made on American Bandstand (she DID in fact make this quote, which was "proven" by this YouTube clip). That interview happened in 1984.
- Today's #1 Track Throwback was Wham! "Everything She Wants"...from 1984.
- Earlier, one of our Mix 96 Classics was "Jump" from Van Halen's album "1984".
