About the Artist

Rock Goes To College was a BBC series that ran between 1978 and 1981 on British television. Upcoming rock bands were showcased, and it was broadcast live from small venues at University, Polytechnic and College halls, where tickets were often given free to students, ensuring a full capacity attendance and lively atmosphere.

Each performance would be a 40-50 minute set, and the original Sight & Sound broadcasts were transmitted simultaneously on BBC TV and in Stereo on BBC Radio One.
