20 Years Ago on Oct. 20, 1998 -- 'NYPD Blue' Season 6 Premieres

October 20, 1998: We led with a photo of Rick Schroder, though he wouldn't join the NYPD Blue onscreen cast five episodes later in January. Meanwhile, the Padres got their chance to lose at home, and the top block's shopping promo references an AC/DC lyric.

A text promo in the My News column references a chance to win a $500 gift certificate for registering for My News. Don't remember that promotion.

[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
