This is old, grey and make a return?

What is that, Bob? The Old Grey Whistle Test is back for one night only? And here we thought “Whispering” Bob Harris was just a nickname.

If you are a fan of the classical music show, so, this is the kind of news that you’ll want to shout it from the rooftops.

Not seen on the BBC since 1988, the show will return on February 23 for a special edition live.

“I can’t wait to get back in the studio,” said Harris, who is the front of the series from 1972 to 1978.

Billed as “a magnificent evening of live music performances from some of the musicians favorite,” the three-hour show will feature the music of Peter Frampton, Richard Thompson and Albert Lee.

Other guests include Dave Stewart, Joan Armatrading, Kiki Dee, and DJ Danny Baker.

“Old Grey Whistle Test was one of those unique shows that always felt like it was owned by its public,” said Caroline Wright, who holds the grand title of Editor, Entertainment Projects, the Studios of the BBC’.

“The design on the show is incredible catalogue of wonderful performances and the guests, Old Grey Whistle Test Live: For One Night Only celebrates this legendary series.”

Here’s what Bob had to say about the program and its title – when it celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2011.
