YES FanFest – 50 True Summers – from a distance – 345

Ken Fuller’s programme!

Produced by Robert Nasir, Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

Neither Mark nor I were able to get to the YES50 FanFest in Philadelphia but we took part as well as we could remotely. This week we are reflecting on some of the performances and the general feel we picked up remotely. We also have a two pence about whether Yes are playing too often these days.

  • Which Yes men were there?
  • What was played?
  • Was it a worthwhile event?

Listen to the episode then let us know what you think!

Produced by Preston Frazier

This week we have reached Steve Howe’s Beginnings in our survey of Yes members’ solo albums. We also have a slightly exasperating 2 Pence about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and an ARW review from Ken Fuller.

  • Steve Howe sings all the lead vocals – why?
  • Does this album hang together as a coherent whole?
  • What would happen to ARW and Yes if the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Yes this time?

I’m off on holiday for the next two Fridays so episodes will be shorter than normal. We have the benefit of Mark’s latest album review this week, however – from Billy Sherwood’s World Trade band – and Mark also adds his latest 2 pence for your consideration. I also grab a chance to listen to a couple of interesting miscelaneous tracks from Kevin Brodie’s CDs he sent me recently. Ken Fuller has been to see Yes recently and he has kindly sent along both an audio review and audio review and a set of photographs – thanks Ken!

  • What was World Trade like originally?
  • How was Ken Fuller’s latest Yes gig?
  • What amazing and slightly random Yes related tracks will turn up?

Listen to the episode then let me know what you think!
