50 YEARS OF TOP OF THE POPS : OCT 10 – OCT 16

The first birthday this week, is Midge Ure, of various acts.

It means nothing to me.

Anyway, this song, which kept it off Number 1, is far better.

Meanwhile, Kirsty MacColl would have been 55 this week.

Meanwhile, both the Kemp brothers from Spandau Ballet have birthdays this week, which must be great if you’re a miserly relative or family friend, just get their presents in a 2 for 1 offer.

ITV gave them their own show this week.

Not even joking, I was in Bristol recently, and there’s a Jewellers called Kemp Brothers. Was so tempted to walk in and as for Gold.

It’s five years this week, since Stephen Gateley died.

Daryl Hall of Hall and Oates (He’s Hall) turned 68 this week. Here’s Paul Young covering him.

From one rock god with flowing blonde locks to another, it’s Rick Parfitt’s birthday this week, so put on your best Double Denim and get ready to rock (with only three chords)

This week, Shaznay from All Saints nudged closer to 40.

I think this week needs some Chilli Peppers

And finally, an All Saints/Chilli Peppers link
