Plans for 2012

New Year 2012

After a fantastic first four months of the Yes Music Podcast, here is a very short episode for the New Year, with a few ideas I’m thinking of developing in 2012.

Please let me know what you think of the ideas.

I hope you all have a great 2012 and thanks so much for listening and getting involved in 2011!

Apologies that the sound quality is not as good as usual. I need to do a lot more experimenting with the new set up!

Normal service will resume next week, barring unforeseen circumstances…

Yes Music Champagne Moments

After a fantastic response from listeners, I have been able to put together a great episode. Listen and find out what your fellow Yes fans consider to be the best moments of Yes music – the moments which remind them why they love listening to Yes – their ‘champagne moments’.

What are your Yes music champagne moments?

Nominate your champagne moments!

Over the coming holiday period, I won’t have time to record the usual album episodes. What I’d like to do instead is create a couple of episodes made up of what you regard as the best moments of Yes music – the moments which remind you why you love listening to Yes – your ‘champagne moments’.

I’d like as many YMP listeners as possible to submit their ideas by Tuesday 13th December through any one of the following routes:

  • Leave a comment on this blog post
  • Ring the voice mail number (on the right) and leave a message
  • Send an email to show@yesmusicpodcast.com
  • Upload an audio file to the new ‘GoAruna’ site (click the link on the right) – please make this .wav or .mp3 (44100Hz and 128bps if you understand this stuff)
You can submit as many champagne moments as you like but I might have to select one or two if lots of people get involved – as I hope they will!

Please get involved!
