Another great alphabet episode… how will you manage when you get to letter S – my itunes library shows a grand total of 24 Yes songs that start with the letter S , it may have to be two episodes.
PS Looking forward to forthcoming interview episodes.
PPS I know I keep sending links to other Yes personnel interviews – don’t want you to miss anything.

Thanks Paul!! 24 letter ‘S’. Mmmm that will indeed be a challenge. Fortunately I should have a long time to consider it! I’m really pleased with the interviews – both were great but of course speaking to someone who played live with Yes was a particularly exciting time for me.

I do appreciate you sending all the interviews – please continue. One of the benefits of following a band wit such a long history is the sheer number of interviews out there and also the number of media outlets who still what to interview band members!

Keep listening – it’s great to have you along for the ride!
