    BBC is pulling the plug. I just keep thinking of the Smithereens' song, which I think I will listen to now:

    Fifteen years too late IMO. Bloody show turned into karaoke long ago.

    The Kinks did "Top of the Pops" too. I think I will listen to it now.

    As Mott the Hoople said in Saturday Gigs, it was always about sitting there criticizing whoever was playing -- "....take the mick out of Top of the Pops -- we play better than they do."
