Album network to recognize anniversary "Dark Side"
To mark the 25th anniversary of the release of Pink Floyd's "Dark
Side of the Moon", The Album Network's weekly series "In the Studio"
will present a special look at the landmark album.
The program will be mostly identical to a previous "In the Studio"
show which explored "Dark Side" on it's 20th anniversary in 1993,
but this time the interviews may include additional material which
had not been previously aired.
In a deal struck between EMI/Capitol and the Album Network, many
affiliate stations of the Album Network will be invited to broadcast
the entire album "Dark Side of the Moon" uninterrupted from
beginning to end on the evening of Tuesday 17 March 1998.
The Album Network invited Pink Floyd to participate directly, but
were told that the band cannot be involved because they are busy
completing their next album. Unfortunately, this cannot be
The Album Network also plans to re-broadcast their two-part show
about "The Division Bell" around the fifth anniversary of the album,
sometime in the late spring or early summer of this year.
