Here is an episode of the short-lived Rock 'n Roll Evening News from 1986, with today's hosts and guests consisting of Robert Hilburn, Paul Simon, Eleanor Mondale, Bruce Springsteen, Majorie Wallace, Buster Poindexter, Adrienne Meltzer, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds. Features live performances on the T-birds, news stories including the subjects of Neil Young, Sting's status on The Police and his film Julie & Julia, a behind the scenes look inside MTV (notice the old pronunciation of Viacom), Cyndi Lauper, the season premiere of Saturday Night Live, the top five new Billboard 100 song debuts of the week, a viewer poll question (I'm sure the results for the previous week's question would be a lot different today!), and an appearance by a young Paula Abdul!
