So no more Top Of The Pops, eh? It has finally been axed. I haven't watched it in years, of course, like most people I imagine, but still....TOTP is embedded in the memories of most music fans from when they were growing up eagerly waiting for that 7 o'clock show, and it certainly brings back memories for me. Only the most die-hard cynic would say that in it's golden period it wasn't an important milestone in exposing music on mainstream TV. All we've got left now on terrestial TV is fucking Jools Holland and his mate KT Tunstall. Respect to The Fall for making him sign a contract stating that he couldn't play boogie-woogie piano along with them.
