Tuesday - Back to the week when this TV show finished!
Yes, we're heading back to late August 1983 when the final episodes of "Quincy ME" went to air. What a great show - starring Jack Klugman - it ran from 1976 til 1983. Also among the top 20 hits of that week, we'll preview what were thriller finals series in the NSWRL and the VFL.. in both cases, the minor premiers were not the ones holding up the trophy on Grand Final Day. That and more as we visit this week in 1983!
