I am using the PHP date function like this:

PHP Code:
date("m/d/y",$row["date"]) 
but I am getting a very odd date..saying 08/20/70...here is the time stamp that it is using.

Code:
20010522
and in the database (MySQL) it is timestamp(8)
I am trying to get that to a readable date like this:

05/22/2001
