120. John Wetton, part 1

I enjoyed putting this show and part 2 together.  Unfortunately, our audience in cavern was smaller than usual, possibly because (as I found out on the day) it was Memorial Day in the US.  Never mind, a peak of 12 in the audience enjoyed some of the really good highlights of Mr. Wetton’s earlier career.  Preshow was bands Wetton had played in, but before he was in them – apart from one, see if you can find it.

  • I had loaded the web page earlier in the day to make sure to catch the program but the countdown timer seems to have been off by an hour. I just caught the last song and ending commentary.

    • I just checked the countdown, and it shows the correct time to me. Plus, if you only caught the ending, then it must have been two hours off. I’ll ask a few people from other time zones to check what they get displayed to make sure, though. Sorry for the inconvenience!
