This funky little jazz band illustration was to be found on Radio Tay's envelopes back in the early 80's. If you were lucky enough to win tickets in one of their competitions for example, you'd receive them in an envelope with this artwork printed on it.

Alan's show "Jazz Waves" has gone on to become Scotland's longest running jazz programme.
Unfortunately, I can't make out the artist's signature, so don't know who drew it.

  4. I think these might have been linked to when one of Dundee's Jazz Festivals was running. Probably just a short lived promo thing.
