The Old Grey Whistle Test
In 1973 ‘The Old Grey Whistle Test’ was in full swing on BBC Two. If you were a music aficionado, this was the show to watch. Hosted by the legendary ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris, who had a voice so smooth it could make even Barry White blush. The show was all about album music, so you could bet your bell-bottomed flares that they were playing only the grooviest tunes.
