My earliest musical memories are watching glam rockers on Top of the Pops and listening to Ed “Stewpot” Stewart’s Junior Choice on 275–285 national Radio One.
Later my two brothers and I would pool our pennies to buy Keith Michell’s Captain Beaky single, a collaboration we repeated for today’s choice.
There are two occasions I recall when a Top of the Pops performance had my brothers and I in fits of laughter. The second was Tenpole Tudor gallivanting around the TV screen to the sound of Swords of a Thousand Men; the first was the moment that Bad Manners singer, Margate colossus and latterly football club owner Buster Bloodvessel bounced out of his rocking chair. Only the video can do it justice.
