Tonight's episode lasted approximately 15 minutes! Nothing to write home about at all.
Of course it's strong... Colour By Numbers was released in October!My SinglesLogs for April and May 1983 are definitely weaker than the rest of the year. By October it's ridiculously strong.
I love the way the DJs are so bad at interviewing that the stars come off as really rude!I love when random 80s popstars pop up! Agnetha from ABBA was a lovely surprise the other week.

Simon Bates really is the worst. I never liked his style at the time, it felt insincere, and his ignorance of music was startling. There's a classic clip in the "Story of 1983" where he's flanked by various pop/rockstars for the 1000th Show and he turns to John Deacon and Roger Taylor of Queen. He asks Roger when the last time was they'd been in the TOTP studio, and he says "probably for Under Pressure", to which Batesy immediately turns to John and says "pity that was your only #1...". Deacon, quick as a flash, hisses back "...and Bohemian Rhapsody too". Idiot.
I think so, but I can't believe he lasted into the 90s at all. Even by 1983 he was clearly out of his comfort zone.
