Utterly ESSENTIAL Friday night listening for me for many many years as I was discovering my love for rock and metal in the late70's/early 80's.Probably only ever missed 5 or 6 shows in all of Tommy's time on the show.
Remember back in those (long before) the internet days the only way to discover this music (apart from the odd trip down to Shades in Soho) was reading Kerrang and listening to Tommy. He introduced me to so many bands who have been part of my life for the majority of it. Heard my all time fav band (Dream Theater) for the very first time and remember Mike Portnoy being a studio guest and Tommy being blown away by their virtuosity.
Used to love the "live" concerts the show broadcast and all the regular features (friday night connection, the all time rock song countdown, the sessions and of course the jingles).
Thanks for the memories TV and being such an important part of my growing up.
