The time has come! BBC Music and BBC Four have announced a line-up of programmes for the upcoming months, and we are most excited about their decision to include among these a celebration of the ‘Old Grey Whistle Test’.
Old Grey Whistle Test Live: For One Night Only will be hosted by our very own Bob Harris and is a live three-hour show with music and special guests. It marks 30 years since the renowned series was last broadcast, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it!
The original series aired from 1971 to 1988, and acted as an introduction for many famous performers such as Bob Marley and David Bowie into the UK music scene. Bob presented the series from 1972-1978 and admits he “can’t wait to get back in the studio and relive those wonderful memories”.
Bob will be interviewing guests such as Dave Stewart, Ian Anderson, singer Mollie Marriott, Pink Floyd animator Ian Emes and Mike Appleton, producer of the original series. Musical guests include Peter Frampton, Richard Thompson, and Albert Lee.
