The Roxy (ITV/ Tyne Tees 1987-88)

I've posted a guide to every edition of the short-lived (and pretty good) "ITV Top of the Pops", including links to the majority of the studio performances - http://drunkennessofthingsbeingvarious. ... 87-88.html

Before I dive into that link: I'm sure you know this, but I have a vivid reason for remembering this show. Paul Nolan, one of the hosts, appeared on Blind Date and made quite a splash with his Brucie impression. He was then immmediately done by the tabloids as a "love rat" who was caught in bed with another girl after the show.

Then he turned up on The Roxy and shortly after that he vanished back to window cleaning. I wonder how much of it was stage managed..
