Easter 1984 was when I was turned on to Rock music & the Friday Rock Show was an essential part of my education especially the import / new release slot.

I like many others no doubt used to tape the show to listen to again & used to make a mix tape of the best tracks. Mid 1985 was a particularly fertile period where many of my most treasured albums were previewed by TV.

My Fave Mix-Tape from the FRS Import / New Release Slot -

Evil - Evil/Evil's Message
King Kobra - Ready To Strike
Coney Hatch - This Ain't Love
Warrior - Fighting For The Earth
Q5 - Missing In Action
TNT - Tor With The Hammer
Slayer - At Dawn They Sleep
Keel - Back To The City
Adam Bomb - I Want My Heavy Metal [Victor Records version]
Anthrax - Metal Thrashing Mad [Armed & Dangerous version]
Bedlam - Take It To The Top
Bathory - Raise The Dead
Venom - Die Hard
Treat - Scratch & Bite
Rogue Male - All Over You

3/4 of these albums were bought on my bi-monthly pilgrimage to Shades records in Soho, the rest in my local Virgin Records Brighton.

Another Fave tape -

Rough Cutt Live at Reading 1986
Source: FM Broadcast
Sound Quality: 10/10

1. Rock The USA
2. The Kids Will Rock
3. Don't Settle for Less
4. Dressed to Kill
5. Let 'em Talk
6. Bad Reputation / (Guitar Solo)
7. We Like It Loud
8. Double Trouble
9. Piece of My Heart (Erma Franklin cover)
10. Cutt Your Heart Out

I'm amazed this has not been made available as the sound quality is excellent.

Some years ago it was mooted that the Radio 1 archive would be made available on line via some kind of subscription service but I've not heard any mention of this for some time. I'd have been interested listening to old FRS providing details were given on the content of each episode.

I'd love to see a list / archive of all the FRS sessions & live recordings, i'm sure it'd be a long list.
