50 YEARS OF TOP OF THE POPS : SEP 26 – OCT 2

We begin this week with the suavest man in the North-East of England …….. not Jimmy Nail, but Bryan Ferry.

Bryan Ferry wrote “Slave To Love” after Courtney Love won a charity auction for him to be her servant.

And now, a much loved popular Australian* actress and singer ……..

Bet you’re all expecting Kylie.

(* She was actually born in England though. Pity she wasn’t born in Greece, then you could say Olivia Newton John from Grease is from Greece)

And a Legs and Co tribute.

Remember Hilary Duff?

Suede. Anything but Trash. Back in the days when Mat Osman was the most famous member of his family.

Bros are 46 this week.

The answer to that question is, 1988, briefly.

Marc Bolan would have been 67 this week.

Meanwhile, it’s been a while since Sugababes have been on this blog.

Mariska Veres of Shocking Blue would also have been 67 this week, born the day after Marc Bolan.

(WARNING : Intro contains Jimmy Savile)

Don McLean appeared on TOTP a long long time ago, but I can still remember.

Meanwhile, if you ever need your car fixed, why not try Mike Rutherford from Genesis?

I don’t know what i’d do if I ever lost my faith in Sting.

Phil Oakey turned 59 today. He’s only human.

Remember Aqua?

Lynsey De Paul died today. Here she is getting ready for Eurovision in 1977.

And we finish this week, with a not very well drawn boy.
