Join us for Breakfast tomorrow when at 9am Ian Robertson will be talking to a man live in the studio and not for the first time WILLY FINDLAYSON, A legend of the late 60's and early 70's who with the band THE VJURY set Ian off on his musical journey.
Below some info courtesy of Wikipedia

The group originally formed as the Jury, changing their name to Writing on the Wall in early 1968. Writing on the Wall were a Scottish rock band of the late 1960s and early 1970s who became a popular live act in the United Kingdom. The band's manager, Brian Waldman, moved the group to London and let the band perform at his club, the Middle Earth. That same year, the band recorded a BBC radio session for disc jockey John Peel and made a live demo album as well.

They eventually recorded their lone album, The Power of the Picts, for Waldman's Middle Earth label. In 1971 the band did another session for John Peel and made an LP in Scotland that was never released in 1972, then went through several lineup changes. The group tried to record another album in Wales near the end of 1973, but gave up when their equipment was stolen in December of that year.
