Thriller: Michael Jackson's Masterpiece

Radio 1 and 1Xtra DJ Trevor Nelson tells the story of Michael Jackson's classic album Thriller.

In December 1982, two of the music industry's biggest stars - artist Michael Jackson and producer Quincy Jones - came together to produce what would become the biggest-selling album in history.

The album would turn Jackson into the world's biggest superstar and the elaborate, accompanying music videos would become a world-wide phenomenon.

Twenty-five years after this album first went on sale, Trevor Nelson discovers how the album tracks came to be, what role MTV played in the process and how it all nearly fell apart.

This special programme features all nine album tracks and exclusive interviews with Quincy Jones, MTV founder Bob Pittman and Moonwalker Jeffery Daniel.

Gday, I've just stumbled across your blog looking for gigs and things to do in Detroit/Michigan. Great site, I especially like the radio listing, it's a good idea. You should consider looking at RRR and PBS radio in Melbourne. They're both really good independent broadcasters available over the net. Anyway, I've just moved to East Lansing and I was wondering if there is anything like this for EL? It seems like an average sized town, do you know if they ever get any noteworthy shows out here or is my best bet heading out to Detroit to see some half decent bands?
