Bob Harris continues to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the classic music TV show which features music from the series that began on 17 September 1982.

There’s a distinctive Scottish air to this twelfth episode with new live sessions from Edwyn Collins and Midge Ure. Both men remember their Whistle Test experience with their respective groups Orange Juice and Ultravox. And Simple Minds’ Jim Kerr joins Bob in the studio to talk about the group’s appearances on the programme.

Dave Stewart recalls not only the Eurythmics performance during the short series that ran in the spring of 1983, but also his appearances prior to this as a member of The Tourists. Amongst the archive music are songs by Orange Juice, Rab Noakes, Simple Minds and Eurythmics.
