ROCK OVER LONDON Radio LP for June 7, 1987

On this summer of '87 broadcast, Simple Minds perform live (I was never a huge fan but SOMEHOW actually saw them TWICE, opening for The Pretenders and with Shriekback too, if anyone remembers them...with Barry from the original the Tower in Philly) and there's a rare U2 b-side called "Spanish Eyes" (not a cover version BUT host Graham Dene does name drop Al Martino) from "The Joshua Tree" plus "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" is tearing up the charts at the time.There's also a treat for fans of The Searchers--an interview with John McNally and Frank Allen, reminiscing about their hit career.
