    73 for me as well. Mainly cos I can’t remember them doing an Everett episode yet.

    It seems you can vote twice but. I gave a vote to fuckin Mayo before I knew what I was doing. Can’t vote twice for the same year but.

    Did Lamacq and Whiley ever present the 90s shite? Wouldn’t mind hearing Taylor let rip on that pair of bozos.

    Smokie were the headliners at a huge (it seemed huge at the time) British Forces Germany youth clubs get together, at RAF Brűggen (my Dad's camp) in 78.

    It was reet posh, with chicken and chips in a basket. Didn't stop the traditional army v RAF/our-camp-better-than-your-camp fights breaking out. I can't remember if that was the one where a fight broke out and I was knocked out of an open window (that may have been a similar "let's get them all together" 'do' near Dűsseldorf airport).

    I wasn't involved in the fight, I hasten to add, and my memory of the fall from the (ground floor) window was that I was really pissed and it just made me laugh hysterically.

    I have no memory of Smokie from that night, sorry.

    The segment on Danny Mirror is great. So much to talk about that Neil and Taylor didn't even get into the arrangement of the song. Danny Mirror could not impersonate Elvis any more if he finished of with a "thangyooverymuch" before leaving the building. The arrangement steals more than a bar or two from that of "The Wonder Of You", and the backing singers are doing their best impression of those Elvis had in his live shows (particularly the ones in the laughing version of "Are You Lonesome Tonight"). It's all quite magnificent, and magnificently bad.

    Incidentally, Neil's laughing at Taylor's bon mots is endearingly infectious, isn't it?

    Incidentally, the discussion of Soul Train was timely since I reposted this reflection on the show and its impact just last week.

    A good time to also share this gallery of stills from Soul Train again.

    I remember John Peel's segment on TV Hell, where he listed his ten least-favourite TOTP moments. Mr Mirror was present and correct.

    It's here on YouTube.

    There is some overlap with the podcastóLittle Jimmy Osmond, Danny Mirror, Laurie Lingo and some of Pan's People's and Legs & Co's less-illustrious efforts.

    I needed a trigger warning for that clip of Sav*l* introducing Jonathan King's 'Una Paloma Blanca'.

    Which makes me think: what is the most 'Yewtree'-heavy clip ever? Is there a Sav+King*+DLT combo?

    *Strictly King is not Operation Yewtree but he is part of the butchering of the episodes that we shorten to 'Yewtree' on these TOTP-repeats threads.

    If one were to scour the TOTP thread over on TV, somewhere therein is reference to a particular edition that featured the whole kit and kaboodle, shebang, nine yards and motherlode.

    But admittedly that would take some scouring.

    We are definitely going to get Kenny Everett 1973 the episode after next because he leads Simon Mayo 1989 by 51 votes to 20.

    Bob Woffinden, the miscarriages of justice guy, has a chapter on Jonathan King in his new book.

    I remember him as a writer either for Sounds or the NME back in the seventies.
