YES! I saw Pink Floyd at New Earswick Folk Hall, together with the light show (Diary, The Press, July 13). I believe The Mandrakes opened for them, featuring singer Robert Palmer.

Also, I saw Procol Harem, Alan Bown, Jimmy Cliff, Soft Machine and Tomorrow, whose singer was Keith West, of Teenage Opera fame.

Radio 270 was on the air at this time and they ran 270 big nights out' at the Assembly Rooms, The Tinned Chicken Club at New Earswick. Also, John Peel hosted a show at the RI in York which featured The Move, Status Quo and York's very own Angel Pavement, who had their music played on the Kenny Everett radio show.

The late 1960s were really good for music in York!
