Sadly, Mike Appleton, the man behind the Old Grey Whistle Test has died. From David Hepworth’s blog
“I’m regularly asked to name the records that changed my life. If I’m perfectly honest records never changed my life. However, a handful of people did. Mike was one of that handful.”
Whistle test has a vital part of my musical education, screened at a time when access to music wasn’t easy. I’m sure we will all have memorable moments from the shows.
This is one of mine
