50 YEARS OF TOP OF THE POPS : OCT 3 – OCT 9

This week’s first birthday, is Lindsay Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac officially becoming an OAP. In 1988, he sold his house, Buckingham Palace, to the British Royal Family for £20m and a signed copy of Rumours.

Unfortunately, there’s not much Mac in the archives, so here’s The Corrs.

It was Gwen Stefani’s birthday this week, of which there is No Doubt.

As yet, Danny from The Script isn’t in the TOTP Hall OF Fame.

Also blowing out candles this week is Chris Lowe, writer of Ian Wright’s 1992 classic Do The Wright Thing , 55 this week.

Remember when Tatu scandalised the nation (well, Richard and Judy) back in 2003?

Bob Geldof, caught in a Rat Trap.

Who wants to see Madness cover The Kinks?

Nicola from Girls Aloud edged another year closer to 30 this week.

And from Girls Aloud, we go to Radiohead ……

Two sadly missed Johns now, to end this week’s round-up.

John Lennon would have been 74 this week.

And a Legs and Co tribute. It’s what he would have wanted.

John Entwhistle would have been 70 this week.
