Wishbone Ash were heavily promoted by Peel in the early 1970's, which led them to become a commercially successful "album band" and favourites of the Sounds of the Seventies audience. They did their first BBC Radio One session for Bob Harris ' show and were featured by Harris and the other SOTS DJs as well as by Peel. On BFBS 's Partners In Dispute in 1992 John mentioned that the band were one of his favourites from the 70's and the track "Time Was" was played.
