Johnnie Walker celebrates the decade of Pink Floyd, Patti Smith and Paul McCartney.

This week Johnnie's joined by Bill Aitken, one of the men behind classic BBC sessions from the likes of David Bowie, Joni Mitchell and The Jam. As a recording engineer and producer he was present for some of the decade's most memorable sessions, as the BBC recorded specials and broadcasts with music's biggest names. Together with Johnnie he'll cover some of his favourite sessions and memories from the other side of the studio glass.

Also on the show, Johnnie will revisit a moment from the decade courtesy of the BBC archive and another classic seven-inch single will be added into Johnnie's Jukebox.
