Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature carved out to celebrate TV and Film’s glorious past.
Today, we honor the British music series Top of the Pops.
Premiering on January 1st 1964, the show was created to serve as a chart show / promotional vehicle for Pop fans and their “idols” alike and would reveal which song stood as the highest-seller of the week every Friday!
Ending its historical weekly run in 2006, TOTP now broadcasts as a Christmas and New Year’s Day special.
Over the course of its mammoth tenure, the show played host to a number of stars from home and away.
Ready to revisit it? Press play below…
Any fond memories of the show?
