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

How will those of us going to the Yes fan fest meet up? I’ll be the one wearing a Yes t-shirt – ha ha! Seriously, is there any interest from other listeners in meeting up?

My Heartfelt Condolences To You Kevin. Hope Everything Gets Better In Time. Many, Many Thanks for still doing the podcast under these challenging circumstances. I So enjoy, appreciate & look forward to the podcast. Keep The Faith. Sending Love, Light, Peace, Prayers & Many Blessings…ALWAYS, Suzette

Sorry to hear about that Kevin, Thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
I believe that casino is in New Buffalo Michigan which is across the state from where I’m located and yes my brother went last year to see ARW which was the only show they did in Mi and said pretty much the same thing about the smoke and casino.
All the best I look forward to you and Mark returning next week

Sorry to hear about your Mother-In-Law, Kevin. Wish I could go to the U.S. Fan convention- that’s great you’ll be there! Just saw Yes on Tuesday… amazing show. Definitely their best post-Chris show I’ve seen.

I probably purchased my first copy of Relayer in 1975 – I definitely remember it being a gatefold album cover. There was no amount of money the record labels would spend on bands that were profitable for them – look at the extravagant covers for Jethro Tull’s Thick As A Brick and Living In The Past. I believe the version you have is a re-issue from some time in the late 1980’s; by that time I had gone through at least two additional copies of the album, both of which were a single album cover with none of the extras – and one of them was an accidental issue of the radio promo print, with Gates cut into three parts, but with the commercial label on the record. Wish I still had that… (I also once had a version of Tull’s Living In The Past which somehow did not have the song “Living In The Past” on it!)

About that poster… I understand how Tormato looms so large in your mind, but it’s only four feet by four feet – that’s 1.2192 meters square! And I’m still very happy that I found such a better home for it than my basement!
