Welcome aboard The Giddy Carousel of Pop. Hold tight for a top pop ride! To mark the 35th anniversary of Live Aid, we go back to the Smash Hits of 17-30 July 1985 with the help of Tim Robinson from DJ/production duo Nightdubbing. We look at Ver Hits coverage of the historic concerts and hear from people who were there or watched from home. We also speak to three former Smash Hits editors - David Hepworth, Mark Ellen and Barry McIlheney - about their memories of the day along with BBC TV director David G Croft. Read along with us!
