  • Never heard Wolfman Jack talk about Yes

    So this was interesting:

    The only thing I know of 'Wolfman Jack' is the Todd Rundgren song on Something/Anything...
    Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
    Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

      His favorite Yes song must be Clap.

        Just watched and listened to some of Robert and Olivia Newton-John when they were hosting The Midnight Special together.

        There is a rather recent nine part, forty minute long episodes on Olivia on YouTube that is wonderful if you have been a fan as long as I have. Fell in love with her voice the first time I heard it, and a fifty-one year crush ensued shortly after. My biggest regret was back in 71 or 72 while living in Austria, my grandparents came over to visit and we took a road-trip in our Volkswagen bus. We stopped at a light at night in Portugal, and I spied a small club she was going to be playing the next night. I had no vote as a seven year old to tell my dad we were going to get a hotel for the night so I could see the show. Seeing a young Olivia Newton-John performing before she became famous would have been amazing! Saw her decades later with my wife and daughter and it was such a fun and amazing show for me. My forever favorite singer the very first time I heard her on the car radio. Of course I had to send her a dozen red roses with card professing my fanhood prior to the show.

            My impression is Wolfman knew very little of Yes, but as host of MS he was enlisted to narrate the pre-assembled clip.
            Funny thing is I remember recording the audio of that on an old cassette boom-box. Used to record all my favorite band appearances that way, it's all we had back in the day.
            When I saw in that week's TV guide Yes would perform on Midnight Special I had my recorder ready to go but didn't know it was going to be just a commercial for the solos tour and albums. Pretty sure after a few listens I wound up recording over it LOL.

              I remember my roommate and I watched the Midnight Special because Yes was listed as a guest, but it was just Steve Howe that time (the part that starts at 4:11 of that video) and boy were we disappointed.
