Creamguide’s pick of the day

  • Top of the Pops, Thursday, 19.30, 00.00, BBC4

    The twentieth anniversary special was a pretty rum affair, what with Frank Kelly racing through his Christmas single, the Rhythm Pals in particularly playful mood (“You’re not going to tell them about the trusses, are you?”) and of course that momentous Quo performance, and great though Rick falling off the stage is, the highlight as far as we’re concerned is Francis getting hit in the face with his microphone. This year is being rationed a bit at the moment as after last week’s no-show there’s only one this week for Glasto, and sadly it looks like a bit of a dull affair, with Bates ensuring anything that looks like fun is quickly stamped upon.

"Brian's Binatone is great for his cassettes!"
