Live from the Edinburgh Festivals

Duration:
1 hour, 56 minutes
First broadcast:
Sunday 25 August 2013

Johnnie Walker celebrates the decade of Petra, Shep and Goldie.

This week he brings the show live from the BBC at the Edinburgh Festivals with a Scottish-infused Sounds of the 70s. The best of the BBC from the festivals will be celebrated, along with hits from the bands that called the highlands and lowlands their home during the decade.

The Proclaimers pick their favourite tunes in My 70s, a time when they were growing up in Auchtermuchty in Fife. Identical twins Charlie and Craig Reid formed punk bands at school before going on to achieve chart success with (I'm Gonna Be) 500 Miles and Letter From America. Last year saw the group celebrate their twenty fifth anniversary in music and release a new greatest hits collection.

Also on the show, Rod Stewart's electrifying concerts will be celebrated with sounds from the BBC archive, and a classic Scottish single will be added to Johnnie's Jukebox.
