Rick Wakeman joins Johnnie to share his 70s memories including a spell as an in-demand session musician, performing for the likes of T. Rex, Elton John, and David Bowie.

At the start of the 1970s, Rick was playing with folk rock band The Strawbs before joining Yes in 1971, recording 8 albums during the period and touring the world several times over. He also released several notable solo projects during the 70s, including Journey To The Centre Of The Earth and The Myths And Legends Of King Arthur.

Also on the show, Johnnie digs out some of the best of the BBC archive, and another listener helps to add a classic seven-inch single into Johnnie's Jukebox.
