Show Edit

  • 1987-12-04
  • "Tonight, Reading Rocks Part Two: some more of the hefty bands who hit the stage at the 25th Reading Rock Festival."
  • Taper's comments: "News after the show is tougher to date than usual, especially as I don't have all of it, but the deal struck between postal union leaders and the Post Office to avert a strike before Christmas and the meeting between Mrs. Thatcher and the French and Irish prime ministers about terrorism both suggest that this was 4 Dec 1987. Also covered was John Burt asking the attorney general to drop legal action against the BBC about a documentary on the secret services.
  • The show is entirely taken up by Reading Rocks Part 2: four more bands from the Reading Festival 'last August' (though this was actually the 1987 event). All four bands appeared on the Sunday night, 30 Aug 1987.
  • Tommy mentions that the next week's show will feature a session by Wild!"
