Pink Floyd Concert on BBC 6 Music

Post by Keith Jordan »

British radio station BBC 6 Music are to broadcast Pink Floyd "Meddle" era concert recordings from the vast BBC archives on Wednesday 9th March 2011 at 9pm GMT.

Also featured on the 180 minute radio programme Gideon Coe will be rugged violinist Seth Lakeman. Session highlights include The Beat, Geno Washington, the Madchester tinged King of the Slums and an early session from Courtney Love's Hole.

The BBC were thinking of shutting 6 Music down last year but was met with protests! Luckily they are still broadcasting so you can enjoy the likes of this nice radio programme!

It starts at 11.19 if you are listening on BBC (sh)i(te)-Player.
Basically it was just Fat Old Sun and One Of These Days.
I've never heard that version of Fat Old Sun before so I really should pull finger out on listening to live stuff.
I thought we were going to get more songs as well.
Oh well, as least it's not being played as part of an Obiturary tribute night! And the positive of any Pink Floyd being played on a BBC radio station more than cancels out the negative of no Pink Floyd played on radio at all.

so was it from the sept 30 1971 BBC broadcast?
youda thunk this Fat Old Sun, along with the 1970 BBC Embryo would have gotten official release by now just because theyre so evolved from the relatively demo-ish studio versions
