CRMP Archive # 3 - Tommy Vance, presenter of The BBC Friday Rock Show

  • Tommy Vance

Tommy Vance 1940-2005

Tommy Vance presented the Friday Rock Show on BBC Radio 1 from 1978 until 1993. From 10:00pm until Midnight every self-respecting rock fan was glued to the radio waiting for Tommy’s great mix of music and info on the bands we loved and the ones we hadn’t heard yet. Most of us heard many of the bands we now know and love for the first time on Tommy’s show and for this we will always be grateful.

The man has passed but the legend lives on. Cheers TV - we salute you!
