  • A review of The Rock and Roll A Level by David Hepworth 3

    "In the mid-1980s, the BBC rock show The Old Grey Whistle Test was presented by two music journalists: the affable, engaging Mark Ellen, always ready with a smile and a witty quip; and his friend David Hepworth, whose deadpan, nerdy delivery could reliably send the viewer to sleep in the two-minute intervals between acts.
