Throwback Thursday!

It’s for a little Throwback Thursday — TDS style.

What year was it? Aliens was the most popular feature film. “That’s What Friends are For” by Dionne Warwick and Friends ruled the radio waves. Plus, The Cosby Show was the most watched program on TV. The year was 1986.

It’s also the same year this picture of two TDS employees—who are both still with the company—was taken. The picture first appeared in Telephone and Data Systems, Inc. 1986 annual report.
