    But seriously, I love everything about the original top-of-the-pops.  That jingle during the countdown, the fact that they actually tell you the chart positions – rather than leak them out over an hour with a final ‘reveal’.  Which brings me onto a sour point, I really hate this American trend that’s seeped into British television like a disease – forcing suspense into EVERYTHING – it’s …

    … royally irksome.

    I was such a fan of Pilchard back in the day. You young folks with your Beyoncy.

    197A?  Does that mean 1980? Or perhaps 6522?

    When did we convert the seventies to hexadecimal?

  7. Has anyone really looked at this? I don’t recall any of these names as from the 70′s and “Kokonut Klub” has a bunch of Ku Klux Klansman playing piano. Surely these are all made up names and acts.

    Van Smooth, Roy Who Sings… I think Vivian Stanshell and/or the Bonzo Dog Band had something to do with this.
