Well, here we are at episode 400 and as a result we are going to break the structure of the episode for one week only because we have 2 major pieces of content for you – an interview with a certain musician you will certainly recognise (OK, it’s our own, Billy Sherwood!) and then our epic 400th episode quiz to win a ridiculous number of Yes and Yes related items.

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: thanvannispen and

Kevin & Mark,
Congratulations on 400 episodes! Fantastic interview with Billy! Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication to the podcast. It is greatly appreciated and enjoyed!

Well done guys on the big one, 400, just imagine what 500 will be like!

Some tricky questions in there, I like the variety.

Good to know also how rare it is to produce such a podcast weekly and for that length of time. There should be no stopping this for some time as Yes rolls on and on.

Keep up the good work chaps.

Dave W

Congratulations to you both on the 400th episode, I can’t believe its been eight years and 400 and Iv’e enjoyed every moment.
Great interview with Mr. Sherwood a true Yes man no doubt
Hope you guys do at least 400 more

Congrats. I only started listening about 150 episodes ago but have had a fair stab at catching up with the older episodes. What a labour of love, expertise and insight! I hope the band know how lucky they are to have people such as you keeping the flame burning,. Bravo.

Two things worth checking out this week –

1) Music industry critic / commentator / curmudgeon, Bob Lefsetz, interviews Phil Carson on his current podcast. The interview is deep and wide ranging but contains some interesting Yes / prog content.

2) Prog is also the subject matter of this week’s Listening Service podcast from BBC Radio 3. Plenty of Yes and Rick.

Both are on iTunes

Sorry I missed the deadline for comments, but congratulations on 400! This is a great community you have built.
