Thursday was Hiroshima Day – the 70th anniversary of the first use of a nuclear bomb on civilians. Today is the 7oth anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki; the only other use of a nuclear weapon on civilians.
In memory of these shocking events, today’s song is Enola Gay by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. Enola Gay was the name of the plane that dropped “Little Boy” on Hiroshima. Somebody didn’t realise this in the BBC when it was released and it was banned because of it’s sexual connotations!
