Episode 21 broadcast on 3rd October on RTÉ lyric fm
Stadium Sounds resonates with the sounds from the 70s to today when gig venues got bigger and bigger and the songs became crown anthems from Bruce Springsteen’s Born to Run, Police’s Roxanne to Queen, Freddie Mercury and Bohemian Rhapsody. Jack and Julie trace sound from the Sony Walkman in 1979 to the birth of the CD in 1982 and the songs, bands, albums and gigs which made history. The show features the epic Live Aid gig in 1985 starring an emerging female artist called Madonna and with Irishman, Bob Geldof, of the Boomtown Rats behind it.
