Big Day | Glasgow Cultural Capital

Channel 4
3 Jun 1990

When Glasgow was Cultural capital of Europe (1990), John made a rather peculiar contribution in an empty theater, together with saxophone player. If I remember correctly it might have been Send Me One Line. It was probably a rehearsal as John did play Send Me One Line during the Big Day (Sunday 3 June). This was at Custom House Quay in the bandstand along the river Clyde. The multi stage show was broadcast live by Channel 4.
The cameraman zooms in on John's sunglasses that reflect the audience and there are also helicopter shots.


Saturday Night Clyde

5 May 1990

Saturday Night Clyde gave a weekly preview on the events that took place that year in Glasgow European Capital of Culture.
This episode was presented from the Glasgow May Festival. It featured the exposition 'Glasgow's Glasgow', an interview with Scottish poet Edwin Morgan, and music by John Martyn.
My best guess is that the John part was recorded at Buster Brown's club in Edinburgh, 16 March 1990. The info about this occasion reads "Sweet Little Mystery | Look At The Girl | Send Me One Line | Interview".

Producer: May Miller, John Archer
Hosts: Clare English, Stuart Cosgrove, Pat Kane
