OLD GREY WHISTLE TEST GIG SELECTIONS ON BBC RADIO 6 MUSIC
> UPDATE: Listen to the audio on BBC iPlayer now
Six tracks were broadcast: Good Morning Universe / We Are / War Boys / It’s A Mystery / Thunder In The Mountains / I Want To Be Feee
A real treat for fans coming on Thursday 11 September when BBC Radio 6 Music will re-broadcast some of the audio from the 1981 Drury Lane concert during the 6 Music Live Hour programme. This probably marks the first time the concert audio has been re-broadcast since its original live transmission on BBC Radio 1 as part of the legendary BBC 1 Christmas Eve Old Grey Whistle Test special on 24 December 1981. It was simultaneously broadcast live on BBC 1 television.
