Andy Mead hosts “The Spirit Of Rock Show”, a tribute to Tommy Vance and The Friday Rock Show on Mearns FM Community Radio. The show occupies the traditional Friday Rock Show slot of 10pm to Midnight on Friday nights. Andy plays the same mix of new and classic rock that made Tommy and The Friday Rock Show such an influential part of Rock radio history.
Tommy Vance was born Richard Anthony Crispian Francis Prew Hope-Weston in Oxfordshire on 11 July 1940. His helming of the Friday Rock Show on BBC Radio One in the UK provided virtually the only outlet for rock and metal in the early 1980s, and his deep, rich voice became one of the most recognisable on British radio. He died of a stroke in March 2005.
