Show Edit

  • 1978-11-17
  • The very first FRS, which took over Friday nights from John Peel's show.
  • Start of show: "Hello, I'm Tommy Vance, and welcome to edition one of the Friday Rock Show, a programme that will in future weeks present the very best rock music that we can find, both past and present. Now tonight, you're in for a treat. Back in October, producer Tony Wilson my producer took a 24-track mobile down to Wembley and recorded Yes in concert. He then took the master tape into another studio, mixed it down from 24 tracks to two, specially for Radio 1 and for you. And here it is, uninterrupted: Yes in concert."

Live Edit

  • Yes, recorded at the Empire Pool, Wembley, 1978-10-28. 'Time And A Word' and 'Don't Kill The Whale' available on Yesshows (Atlantic).
