This extremely (less than 200 copies) limited edition radio special was a promoter for the tommy movie and soundtrack. In between the music tracks the following people (in order) commented on the movie and music:
 
Ken Russel
Elton John
Pete Townshend
Ann-Margaret
Pete Towshend
Roger Daltrey
 
Really interesting, this record begins my saying that tommy is the biggest rock acheivement of the century, which is quite true! Was created and produced by Jim Sotos and Henry Sarpelli. Interviews by fred robbins with robbins' nest productions. This album is a promo only, clearly states 'not for sale'.

Number: shows #205-208
Label: Army Reserve Radio Shows
Released April 1975

This 2LP radio show with great DJ, Alison Steele (the nightbird) speaks with four artists, one
side each, John Entwistle being the 1st side. This albums acts as a promo for Odds and Sods, Tommy Soundtrack and Movie and John's Solo Work. Very interesting. The cover is a logo of Alison Steele's radio show 'cosmic connections'. The other artists on the LP are, followed by air date and show number, with the who on first:

The Who #205 4/6/75
Neil Sedaka #206 4/13/75
Rasberries #207 4/20/75
Robert Lamm #208 4/27/75

Neil Sedaka was a real pop musician, well known in the fifties, talks about his comeback into the music industry.
The Rasberries were a pop group (a few hits) and Robert Lamm, was, I believe a member of
Chicago, talks about his solo effort.
