Some interesting music and interviews that were broadcast last Wednesday evening on UK BBC Radio 2's Bob Harris show. Attached is link if this does not work google BBC Radio 2 whistle test 40 years episode 6.

Contents of programme
Bob Harris continues to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the classic music TV show. Each programme looks at one complete series of the original Old Grey Whistle Test and includes archive recordings alongside new interviews and recorded sessions with guests from the featured series.
Programme six covers the show's run from September 1976 to June 1977. There are new session tracks from Joan Armatrading; Peter Frampton talks about the success of his 1976 live album and a concert special for OGWT; Stevie Nicks talks about joining Fleetwood Mac and their much requested filmed performance of Rhiannon; and Gregg Allman visits the Whistle Test studio to reminisce about his appearance with Cher, and to play a special acoustic performance.
Amongst the archive highlights are an impromptu performance from Allman Brothers Band founding member Dickey Betts and an interview with one-time governor of Georgia and future president Jimmy Carter. There is also an archive interview with Mick Fleetwood and Lindsey Buckingham, while Bob revisits one of his favourite OGWT reports - the 1976 Macon Picnic.

You know its , I don't know what it is but I bought a Lynyrd Skynyrd CD sometime last fall because it contained their entire performance on the Old Grey Whistle Test. About a 50 min. dang good show. Why can't we get ABB stuff like that? Wait, forget I just said that. Had a blank moment. Or a management moment. Or maybe the ABB did theirs on Moogis. Who knows??? I dont, and what's really frustrating is I don't understand. How much great music does this band choose to just sit on even though the loyal ones practically BEG for it? Sorry guys and ladies, just my thoughts and frustrations.

Living in the UK my only complaint is - Why is this archive of a tv show being aired on the radio?!
