And Still There at Number One

And Still There at Number One

In this episode of the podcast celebrating growing up in Britain during the 1970’s and the part TV played in our lives looks at what made Thursday nights special for UK viewers – Top of the Pops.

Our host Oliver takes you back to his childhood musical journey starting with nursery rhymes, taking in The ChipmunksJunior Choice and the jingle for Enkalon 6 Star Nylon and ending up with Top of the Pops. Why was this programme so popular and what did it mean to the generation that grew up in the 70’s?

Let us take you back to the world of Glam Rock, of artists miming to backing tracks, Pan’s People and the countdown to that coveted number one spot in the charts.
