Bless my cotton socks its DLT!, so its no mystery why we wont be seeing this on BBC4. This is still a good watch however with debuts from Teardrop Explodes, Legs biggest fan Toyah and new performances from Adam and The Ants and the recently departed Lemmy with Motorhead and Girlschool. Plus two Legs performances, yippee!

Thanks Mikey. WOW, after watching that in my eyes that was the best TOTPs for a very long time with just about everything getting the thumbs up by me, though the number one is getting on my nerves now. Such a shame the wider BBC4 audience have been denied the chance to view it.
What would i have voted for in the weekly poll, well its no mystery, it would have been Toyah.
Surprising to hear DLT make Tony Blackburn the butt of his joke before the `Oldest Swinger In Town` on this, especially as hes not been on the show for a couple of years now. Knowing Tone though i think he would have taken it in good humour, probably glad of the mention actually.
Yes just looking on BBC Genome im quite surprised to see Tony Blackburn still on Radio 1 in 1981. It appears that the weekends were his slot with Junior Choice on both days plus the new top 40 on a Sunday tea-time. He held the latter until January 1982.
