Kevin Hart hosts a detailed account of a fateful summer almost 40 years ago and how two major events are linked. Listeners are most likely aware of the Live Aid concerts, staged in London and Philadelphia to raise money for Ethiopian famine relief. Fewer are aware that, just two months prior, Philadelphia police dropped a bomb on a residential neighborhood, killing 11 people. In podcast-like episodes, Hart narrates the history of MOVE, a radical communal organization in the city, its members and how they were targeted. The production includes media clips from the period that shed light on the horror of the attack itself, as well as moments of joy from the concert event. This essential listening experience provides an important document of history. S.P.C.
