Archive 006 - Donington 88 Friday Rock Show - Triumph & Tragedy

As we approach the modern day Download Festival at Castle Donington, Olly Barnes takes us back to the eve of the Monsters of Rock at the same venue in 1988. A superlative bill of bands promised a classic but what followed was tragedy.

The show includes a report on the events of that day and respects paid to the fans who died.
