It took me a while to realise that the theme music used to The Sequence was an electronic version of George Martin's Theme One, specially weitten for the opening of BBC Radio 1. It was the first piece of music played on Radio 1 (not The Move's Flowers in the Rain which was played AFTER Theme One).

Wonderful to hear these again! I knew I'd been listening to early rock on BBC VHF but couldn't remember the name of the show. "The Sequence" was the closest thing UK had to FM radio for a very long time. Ended up here after googling Tommy Vance who used to do the Friday Night Rock Show - I see he died way back in 2005. Alarmingly I still listen to the radio with a small "transistor" plugged into my stereo hi-fi, albeit on DAB, and of course Planet rock broadcasts in ... Read More

As a fomer BBC PO and producer, I discovered an interview I reworked for a Sounds of the Seventies programme with Mike Harding, who had actually produced some of the music for the originla series. Mike and I met at BBC wilthsire Sound where I was head of programmes. Does anyone know where he is nowadays? I'd love to meet up again and hand him a copy of the interview.

I taped one of the Vincent Price "The Sequence" broadcasts in July 1973. I might still have some of it on reel to reel tape up in the loft. I remember he played Johnny Jenkins 'Dimples', Ry Cooder 'One Meatball', Paul Simon 'Something So Right' and one track who artiste escapes me 'Back on the Road Again'. Classic radio, ahh!

Searching I was pleased to find this mentioned.
I am sure I have one or two of "The Sequence" recordings inc' one with Vincent Price (an unsual choice perhaps until "Thriller"!). They are on cassette an I must try and get them into mp3.
