Kate Bush

Well, somebody had to, I guess. But why Kate Bush?

In case you’re wondering, it was called Satellite Television Ltd when it was founded in November 1980, but Rupert Murdoch’s News International bought a 65% stake in the company on 27 June 1983 and it was renamed Sky Television on 16th January 1984 – yes, this day, 35 years ago.
