'One Day That Shook The World' Live Aid One Year On' 12th July 1986 BBC Radio 1

'One Day That Shook The World' Live Aid One Year On' 12th July 1986 BBC Radio 1

It's one of those defining moments for those of us of a certain age. Where were you for live aid? I was in Rumbelows paying my TV rental that sultry Sunday morning when an entire bank of TV's flew into simultaneous action blasting out Rocking Around The World. This is a radio documentary that went out almost a year to the day, narrated by the strident tones of Simon Bates, with interviews with producer Dave Aitkey, Stuart Grundy , many of the artists and of course Bob Geldof, it follows the day chronologically. It's moving, who could forget that video underneath the Car's Drive, it's a testament to a one-off event unmatched after thirty years.
