Well, now it’s official. The end of an era for British pop music – Top Of The Pops comes to an end on 30th July, unable to compete with 24 hour music channels.
The programme’s been dying a death for years and I bet few of us watch it now. But in its heyday, it was essential viewing. Often naff, occasionally memorable, sometimes even controversial – but always the highlight of your Thursday night and the talk of the school playground the next day.
Check out YouTube for a whole host of clips from the show’s past – but this one caught my eye – Jilted John by Jilted John. Strange to think he became John Shuttleworth, Enjoy!
