The Friday Rock Show

Introduction

Here's a checklist of every Friday Rock Show with what details we know. It also highlights which shows are known to exist and whether they're complete or not, with a link to that show's page on the Friday Rock Show Wiki.


Here's what the fields mean:

Any? This is a Y if any amount of this show is known to exist.
All? This is a Y if the entire show is known to exist.
Length The length of each file in a recording. A separate line means a separate recording.
Source The originator of the show, where known.
Wiki? This is a Y if a recording is available to download at the Friday Rock Show Wiki.
FRS Session(s) Any sessions broadcast that were recorded for the Friday Rock Show.
#1b means the first FRS session by that band but the second broadcast.
