THE FRIDAY ROCK SHOW THEME





Well  that's about my lot for this tribute to Tommy Vance's Friday Rock Show.
This tribute is from April 2017, compiled by myself -mix them as you please -
this sees 12 years since the death of TV.

This is probably the best compilation I could come up with. At one stage or another you would have heard Tommy play these tracks live on radio.as he went to air.
I have compiled these tracks from my memory of the earlier shows especially that of 1983.
Also note that during this period, From Thin Lizzy to Kiss (tracks)  were all played by TV during the BBC Radio 1 Top 40 Countdown in the UK. They were all in the chart around about the same time frame.
 
During that time he was also hosting the BBC Top 40 countdown.
Phenomenal and critical period of Rock music as we knew it
