“It was fun to play the shows,” Mason says, “because in some ways it was the pinnacle of a Floyd show. It was one of those moments where a rock show was taken to a different level. When Roger gets his Broadway [musical version of ‘The Wall’] done eventually, it could work really well. It does have quite a lot of the structure there already.”

In The Studio with Redbeard, a show discussing the events that take place while classic rock albums were being made, has been around for a very long time, it’s always a good listen. I’ve been listening to his radio show for as long as I have loved music. There is a very recent two-parter pertaining to The Wall.

A different sort of Wall.

The Wall now…

SNAKING ALONG, cutting through fields and streets, yards and gardens, the 28-mile-long Berlin Wall stood as a border between East and West Berlin from 1961 to 1989.

That all changed on Nov. 9, 1989, when an inexact translation, a confused border guard and a natural longing for a better life opened a hole in that wall that would eventually end the Cold War.
