    Thanks for the heads-up on this!

    I remember listening to the entire album being played by Tommy Vance on BBC Radio 1's 'Friday Rock Show' in late '79. He had Roger Waters there with him, talking us through every track. Had a profound effect on this 15 year-old schoolboy, that's for sure.

    A pleasant stroll along the river from my house, and what must be a stone's throw from Howard is Astoria, Dave Gilmour's recording studio where a lot of Dark Side of the Moon was recorded. I don't know if any of The Wall came from it, perhaps an expert can shed more light?

    I saw the Floyd at an all nighter in their early days at The Roundhouse and fell asleep for part of the show..........

    I must have had a complete brain fade. DSOTM wasn't recorded on Astoria, I was thinking of The Division Bell.

    Easy mistake to make :dk:

    On a slightly different, but loosely associated topic, would anyone on the Forum be kind enough to let me have a copy of "On an Island"? Got the CD cover but the disc has walked. No idea at all how. Happy to pay postge etc. Thanks in anticipation.

    Tommy Vance's Friday Rock Show was a great influence for me, much like John Peel, he found lots of new music to play.

    "I'm not funny, I'm not pretty. My whole reason for existence is that I'm a disc jockey. My interest is in the music."

    I was listening to the same show you were while in bed and the Helecopter at the start of Happiest Days woke my Brother up in his room... LOL..:D
