bbc friday rock show

Today’s show includes performances of NWOHM band that played on BBC Radio 1’s Legendary Friday Rock Show. The Friday Rock Show was a radio show in the UK that was broadcast on BBC Radio 1 from 10pm to midnight on Friday nights from 1978 to 1993. Throughout most of its run it was hosted by Tommy Vance. Ostensibly for the genre of rock in general, it was most closely associated with Heavy Metal. In the early 1980s it was the only nationally available outlet for this genre of music, and Vance’s enthusiasm for showcasing new bands and his rapport with fans made the show essential listening for rockers. The show played a significant role in the rise of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal music. Many of these studio sessions were engineered, mixed and produced by Dave Dade, generously bearded BBC Senior Studio Manager, who worked closely with show producer Tony Wilson. Turn up the volume and enjoy these performances.
