After over a year of filling up my harddrive with great concerts from Queenzone, it's time to start giving back. This isn't much, I know, but it's a start...

60-second radio ad for the Queen concert on November 4, 1978, at the Lakeland Civic Center in Lakeland, Florida.

First few seconds of the ad are missing.

The radio ad doesn't mention the year, but according to QueenConcerts.com they only played two shows in Lakeland and the 1978 show was on a Saturday.

98Rock was (and still is) an FM radio station in Tampa, Florida, which is about 30 miles from Lakeland.

Found this tape (with 3 others) about 15 years ago in the bottom of a box on the floor in a great record store in Tampa, FL. The other tapes had some Queen rarities (Larry Lurex, Smile, etc.) and some interviews on them recorded, I think, off the air, including a Midnight Special appearance from TV (audio only, of course). I haven't found the other tapes yet.

Anyone else have any Queen radio ads?

This is nice, thanks! Now all we need is an audio recording and the video to be shared :)

The strange thing was the radio promoting a Queen 1978 concert with songs from thei first four albums with focus on QueenII.

Is this really 78? Because it would make more sense to hear WATC or WWRY or the Rock songs.

Thanks for sharing.

Take care

Considering that Queen played that venue in 77 and 78, which one is it? I guess we have to take his word. :) As far as the promo with Killer Queen and others, this doesn't mean anything, that is what they were famous for at that point, why no BoRap is a good question, but i would think no WWRY or WATC because this was early 78 and WWRY & WATC didn't enter the Billboard in the US until 78.

I'd say the given date is correct, because the 11-4-78 show was on a Saturday night, and the ticket price is correct (unlike the 2-20-77 show).

Thanks for sharing this promo! I love hearing this stuff.

The Midnight Special appearance you mentioned sounds incredibly interesting. Can you tell us something about it?

This is exactly the info from Queenconcerts.com that I used to determine the ad's date. I was really surprised Queen only performed in Lakeland twice.

I did find the other interview tapes. As for the Midnight Special tape, it's not a live performance by Queen. Four or five videos were shown, some edited, and a brief history of the group was given by the great Wolfman Jack. I'll upload Wolfman Jack's narration tomorrow if anyone's interested (again, this is audio only, recorded from the TV's speaker).

Another tape is labeled "Off the Record Part 1" from 15 Nov 1981, recorded from 95FM. The second tape just says "Freddie Mercury Interview Tape 2", but I suspect it's the following week's "Off the Record".

The last tape is a compilation tape made by someone named Yvonne, who included a nice track list. Side 1 is rare songs (or songs that were rare 20 years ago): Man From Manhattan, I Wanna Testify, Turn on the TV, See What A Fool I've Been, and both Larry Lurex and Smile tracks.

Side 2 is the interviews:

-German interview with Queen 1979
-Dutch interview with Brian after "Crazy Tour" 1979
-Merry Christmas wishes
-Interview with Roger after "Future Management" 1980
-Music Life wishes 1981

It ends with a very poor audience recording of 5 songs from "9-12-80 Wembley" (Imagine/Battle Theme/Flash/The Hero/Brighton Rock).

This stuff is rather common now, as I was able to track down the German interview and Roger's interview on YouTube. The other three interviews are probably there as well.

I'll try to listen to the FM interview tomorrow.

I have two Off the Record interviews dated Nov 29, 1981. I suspect they may be the same as yours. Could you give a brief description of what they talk about.

Also, the Dutch 1979 Brian interview sounds new to me, though it may be that I have it listed as something else. Any further info is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time to post all that, Bill. But I do have most of what you mention. Sure, you can upload the Wolfman Jack narration if you feel it offers anything interesting. :)
