Episode 39 – 1st Yes Music Podcast Quiz Results!

The winner doesn’t get one of these…

The thirty-ninth episode of the Yes Music Podcast featuring the results of the 1st Yes Music Podcast Quiz.

In a change to the normal format of episodes, here are the answers to the questions in the quiz, some of the more interesting answers and the announcement of the winner!

I also take a few moments to talk about the aspects of the podcast I usually skip through.

 

Thanks so much to everyone who either enjoyed reading the questions in the quiz or actually entered. It was a lot of fun watching the answers coming in.

I hope the winner enjoys the small prize when it arrives at their house! (It won’t be a big cup like in the illustration.)

Theme music

The music I use is the last movement of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite. This has been used as introduction music at many Yes concerts. My theme music is not take from a live concert – I put it together from the following two creative commons sources:

  1. Aaah, so close! 🙂 Thanks Kevin, that was fun. (The obscure questions were very obscure – I just googled the image of “Love Will Find A Way 12”, and who would have guessed Mike Dunne?)

    1. Yes, never mind – perhaps next time? Anyway, thanks so much for taking the time to enter! Sorry about the obscure questions – I really didn’t want it to be a Google fest. 🙂

  2. Zomg I can’t believe I’ve won! It was still a very hard quiz which was really cool, never would’ve guessed the Love Will Find A Way 12″ or Mike Dunne, and zomg was that me who forgot Geoff Downes on my member list? I’ve got his autograph on my shirt 🙁 But well still good job Kevin, I enjoyed it and I will be getting out my spyglass to go check out the letter box and see if my by now microscopic award has arrived. 🙂

    1. Well, public thanks and congratulations here as well as elsewhere, Joost. You just managed to pip the others at the post. Be careful you don’t miss the prize as it falls under the door mat! 😉

  3. You Had a great quiz Totally enjoyed and boy do I feel dumb Mike Dunne I used to stare at that album oh well.The only special album I ever had from Yes was a Blue Vinyl 78 speed of Parallels and Wonderous Stories It was the coolest thing I ever had and when CD;s came out well all my Vinyl went to my younger Brothers and me like a damm fool I could shoot myself for doing that but Now I look for Master Recordings on CD really enjoy the old Analog sound.Again Kevin you deserve a tremendous Bravo for all your hard work and dedication to this Pod Cast .
    Thanks for all your hard work can’t wait for next week’s Pod Cast
    Best regards
    Paul Tomei

    1. So near and yet so far! You almost made it! That blue vinyl sounds great. Never mind, at least you can still hear everything Yes ever released.

      Once again, thanks so much for your support – I certainly wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for people like you! 🙂
