1986 radio continues with an extended listen to some of the coverage given to the Challenger shuttle explosion of that year. From the lengthy, tension-filled, on-the-spot reporting of the disaster immediately after lift-off, to later analysis of what went wrong (including pleas from the booster makers not to launch that day,) to where this first-ever crash of the shuttle left the space program, and throwing in some appropriate music of the year. Following this, we move back into fun with some radio production promos, a little Firesign Theatre, some Negativland from OTE in 86 at their annual stockholders picnic, and more 86 music.
