Show Edit

  • 1987-08-21
  • "Tonight we have another special event in the Friday Rock Show history: here, on the eve of Donington 1987, I have a guest in our studios, one of the constant front runners in the world of rock and roll. A man who's done countless gigs around the world, he's spent months in recording studios creating, along with various bands, a mass of classic tracks, many of which you're going to hear in tonight's programme. Stand by, on the Friday Rock Show tonight, to meet Ronnie James Dio!"
  • Taper: "Date confirmed. Tommy advises that it's the eve of Donington. This is the Monsters of Rock Festival on 22 Aug 1987. The last six tracks are a sweep of bands playing Monsters of Rock." [1]
  • Dio reveals that he hates the song 'Rock 'N' Roll Children', as he felt it didn't represent the group and was a step backwards, but was overruled by members of the band who wanted the song on the album.
