The Friday Rock Show Sessions is a 1992 live album release of Hawkwind's headline set at the Reading Festival, 24 August 1986.

The set was recorded by the BBC and transmitted soon after on Tommy Vance's Friday Rock Show. The broadcast excluded performances of "Paradox", "Shade Gate", "Choose Your Masks" and "Moonglum". This album was released as per the broadcast.
