Old Grey Whistle Test



I cannot understand why the BBC don't release the full hour live sessions of the bands that perform on the Old Grey Whistle Test.

I was into The Jam and The Specials in the late 70's early 80's and i remember them doing the one hour session it was great.

Ahh..whispering Bob Harris.
