When did you start listening to The Evening Session?: At some point between September and December 1995.
Favourite memories / moments of The Sesh: The Christmas quiz which featured Martin Rossiter being unable to guess the mystery voice which turned out to be that of his guitarist speaking with his scarf in his mouth.
Best bands discovered: The Longpigs, Number One Cup.
Long lost bands that we've probably all forgotten: Chuck, Bracket, Air Miami, China Drum, Powder, Ted, Sugar
Songs that defined your youth / remind you of The Sesh days: "She Said" by the Longpigs, "Divebomb" by Number One Cup, "I Wish" by Skee-lo, that one by Boutique
What bands would you like to bring back and make big: All of the above
Anything else to add?: I gave up on the Evening Session at some point in 1997 and John Peel became my only reason for listening to Radio One. I still look back on the Evening Session circa 1995-6 and wonder what it was that produced so many entertaining indie bands and why so many of them fell away in the subsequent year or two. Back then, I was as excited about spending a night listening to the radio as I would be to find £50 on the floor. Also, I should mention that Collins' and Maconie's Hit Parade was wonderful too and deserves a thread of its own.
