Top of the Pops ...

The final broadcast on Sunday 30 April 2006 attracted 4.8 million viewers.

I remember watching this program on a black and white TV in my youth. This was the only way for poorer folk,who could not afford to go to concerts, to see thier favourite bands.


At its peek, millions would be glued to this weekly event.


This did not make Top of the Pops ... But it was a big hit in America, for The Dead Milkman.

As you tell this I remember the "Top Ten of the Week" in my youth - every Friday evening the greatest songs in radio!
I loved them and it was the greatest pleasure hearing them in the bathtub...
