It was a great pleasure to welcome back to the show former Yes keyboard player and prolific solo artist, Oliver Wakeman.
We asked him about some of his latest releases including Dark Fables, Tales From Gaslight and his soundtrack to Yendor.
It was particularly interesting to hear recollections of working with original Yes guitarist Peter Banks and Oliver also shared some remarkable tales from his Yes days including what happened when he first joined the band in Canada, what Chris Squire said to him and something to do with sellotaping two keyboard pedals together…
- Was Oliver’s entry to the band smooth and straight-forward?
- What was Peter Banks like to work with?
- Why does Oliver keep coming back to epic structures and story-telling in his music?
Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

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: archive.org
