Live Aid 30th Anniversary – The Memories Live On


Live Aid was staged on Saturday, July 13, 1985. About 75 different acts performed live for about 170,000 people in London and Philadelphia. Meanwhile, an estimated 1.5 billion people in 110 countries watched it via a live television stream from 13 satellites. More than 40 nations also held telethons for African famine relief during the broadcast.

Here Nearfm’s very own DAVE O’CONNOR talks to Mark Finnegan about his memories of that very special day.
