Johnnie’s here with his expertly-curated pick of classic ‘70s tracks and forgotten gems.

His special guest this Mother's Day is Steve Howe, guitarist & songwriter with Yes.

He'll be chatting about his work with the the rock legends, and his close working partnership with singer Jon Anderson. Together with the rest of their bandmates, they wrote some of the most enduring songs in the Yes back catalogue, including the 1971 classic Yours Is No Disgrace, their almost-ten-minute epic that set the benchmark for many of those lengthy Prog Rock anthems that followed.

Johnnie also has more stories from This Week In Music, our 350th single enters Johnnie's Jukebox, and he'll be playing more of your requests and dedications too.
