Tune into BBC Radio 2 this afternoon from 2pm to the Steve Wright Show with Craig Charles where Dave Stewart will be a guest. Dave will also be appearing alongside Bob Harris this evening on BBC 4 at 9pm for a live revival of The Old Grey Whistle Test.
“It’s going fantastically well, it’s going to be a huge reunion for a lot of us,” said Bob Harris. “Mike Appleton, who was the producer of the programme, is going to be there. Richard Williams, who was the first presenter of the show before I started. We’ve got loads of musicians who are calling in to either chat or play – Dave Stewart, Joan Armatrading, Peter Frampton, probably Gary Numan. And we’ve got a couple of new artists as well, Robert Vincent and Wildwood Kin, both of whom have been former Bob Harris Emerging Artist awardees at the Americanas. In the way that we used to do Grey Whistle Test, we are looking forward to featuring new music as well.”
