Show Edit

  • 1988-01-29
  • "Tonight is Mega Monster Mosh repeat time. In March last year, Radio 1's armour-plated mobile plugged into the frantic action at one of the United Kingdom's big concert events."
  • Taper's comments: "News after the show dates the show to 'the eve of the SDP conference'. In 1988 that was 31 Jan, dating this show to 29 Jan 1988. That's backed up by the show including theme tunes made by Mammoth which debuted on the 22 Jan 1988 show. If there was any doubt, Tommy ends the show with news that the next week's show will be the Comic Relief Special, which was 5 Feb 1988. Revival of a feature running through the rock top ten of the month (tracks 1-10). These songs are not played in entirety because Tommy only has 33 minutes to play 41 minutes of music. The Flotsam and Jetsam and Megadeth live sets from the Hammersmith Odeon are repeats, first broadcast (I believe) on 24 Apr 1987." [1]
