Eruption 101.3 First Birthday Party

By 1994 the station had established itself throughout the rave scene, but the real test was the first birthday party held at the Four Aces Club in Dalston. There were no flyers for the event, the only publicity was generated through the station – so this first birthday party would show exactly how popular the station was. In the end the event was absolutely rammed with people eventually being turned away at the door, proving Eruption’s status and celebrating a year on air in style. 

Check out the video from the event here, and watch the 1st Birthday
