Mark and I had a brilliant time this week speaking to Richie Castellano about his Band Geek Yes covers. Multi-instrumentalist Richie is passionate about Yes and a lot of other music and if you haven't seen his Band Geek YouTube channel, then what are you waiting for? It's amazing.

How does Richie choose songs to cover?What is the rehearsal and production process like?What have been Richie's favourite Yes covers?

Theme music

The music I use is the last movement of Stravinsky's Firebird Suite. This has been used as introduction music at many Yes concerts. My theme music is not take from a live concert - I put it together from: archive.org
