Sad news reached me this week of the passing of another of the extended Yes family, via my former colleague, Jim Sweetman:
R.I.P Mike Dunne, Yes engineer, tape operator and editor.
Mike was a key component in the definition of Yes’ sound and worked with the band from its early days until 1980.
Later, he returned to add his special talent to compilations like, ‘In a Word, Yes’.
Alongside Yes, Mike also worked with many other influential artists such as Mott the Hoople, Jon Anderson (for whom Mike was engineer on ‘Olias of Sunhillow’ and ‘Song of Seven’), Van Der Graaf Generator, Flash, Greg Lake and Alex Harvey.
A generous, gracious gentleman when I emailled him, Mike will be missed by all Yes fans.

This can be any kind of Yes item – it doesn’t need to be rare or valuable – we are just interested in the story behind it and why it means so much to you. (By uploading, you agree to let me add your photograph to a YouTube video and to re-tell your story on the podcast.)
