Today is Yes Day! As part of the global effort to persuade The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to induct Yes, Voices for Yes have declared today as a special chance for all Yes Fans to get involved – for the first time or to renew their efforts.
You will have heard about the Voices for Yes campaign on episode 112 of the podcast with Steve Sullivan.
So please do follow the link and vote for Yes – and tell all your friends!
Together, we can make it happen!
Just found Big Generator album and Leave It 12 inch single, both on vinyl at a charity shop in Stratford! I paid £1.90 for the two. Bargain of the year!
I’m delighted to be able to release the full video of the Ben Craven and The Section YMP event. There’s brilliant prog rock, lots of chat and some fun moments to enjoy.
Many thanks to Ben for all the editing – and to the whole band for their generosity. Enjoy!
Ben Craven and the Section in association with the Yes Music Podcast are planning what we think is the first ever live, Progressive Rock session to be broadcast live on the web via You Tube Hangouts On Air.
The event takes place this Saturday, 11th May 2013, at 2.00pm UTC.
An unlimited number of prog fans can watch on the Yes Music Podcast YouTube Channel as the top Aussie outfit play live from their studio in Brisbane.
The session is also being recorded in full-quality audio to be released as an episode of the Yes Music Podcast shortly after the event.
A small number of fans can also join the Google Hangout – if you’d like to do that, please drop a line to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Join us for the prog rock event of the decade!
Assuming the technology doesn’t fail us, why not tune in on Saturday and witness the dawn of a new, virtual era for progressive rock? We’d love to see you there!
To get you in the mood for this fantastic event, here’s Ben Craven’s latest album:
I’m excited and delighted to announce that after the voting and jury stages of the European Podcast Award 2012, the Yes Music Podcast was placed 18th in the ‘Personality’ category in the UK.
A HUGE thank you to all YMP listeners who voted and/or supported the podcast this year!
I was delighted to receive a lovely physical copy of Scott O’Reilly’s remarkable book through the post recently. It’s a great read and even more pleasurable when you can hold the object in your hand.
Good work, Scott!
Time and Space – a progressive space-opera rock odyssey
Adam Sears from Lobate Scarp was kind enough to send me the items you can see above all the way from the US. I was delighted to receive them.
The CD package has a great, full-colour booklet inside with photographs, lyrics, acknowledgements and even a proper explanation of the band name with illustration!
As you can see, the band members have even signed this copy so I feel very special!
Why not get yourself a copy of the physical CD? The music is excellent and holding the package in your hand is a delight.
Thanks so much, Adam!

I’m very excited to announce that Tom Brislin has agreed to be interviewed for the Yes Music Podcast in the New Year. As you can see from this image, I saw Tom play on Yes’ 2001 Tour in Birmingham, UK. He is also a solo artist and has recently released a new album which you can preview here:
I’m very much looking forward to asking Tom what it was like to work with members of Yes on tour and also about his own music.
So look out for the interview in the early weeks of 2013!
