Duane Eddy's House of Twang

Old Grey Whistle Test


The Old Grey Whistle Test was an iconic BBC TV programme that ran from 1971 to 1988 with Bob Harris as the original and most influencial presenter. Tonight, the programme was "Live: For One Night Only" to commemorate the 30th anniversary of its demise; the programme included tributes from many artists that were featured on the programme. And Bob kept a great clip to the end - Duane sending his best wishes and playing a few notes on his new six-string bass guitar. As Bob said - there's a legend!!

I was stationed in England in '71-72. We'd watch that show often, as well as Dr. Who and Monty Python.
