Old Grey Whistle Test LP – who’s got this? Any memories of the Old Grey Whistle Test?

Andy Qunta… This was a really excellent show! Bands playing live! Whispering Bob Harris adding intelligent comments. The good old days! 😉

Peter Thomson… Not the album but I do have a DVD box set. Astonishing catalogue when viewed back to back.

Pete Prescott… I watched the first one with my mother. Not sure she was as impressed asI was ha ha ! I think it was 1971.
The first song up was “warming up the band ” by Head Hands and Feet. I tried to never miss out each week.
I remember watching Claire Hamill on it. Great show. Andy Q and Wesley were on it with Hazel O’Connor I think.

Andy Qunta… Yes, we were on with Hazel towards the end of 1980 I think. Great experience!

Chris Barrett… I see Claire Hamill was on it on it 4/4/1972. Can you remember what you sang?

Mark Randall… Every New Years Eve special/compilation, they ALWAYS played SteelyDdan’s ‘Reelin’ in ..” and soddin’ LS’s Freebird. Every year!!!!
