Kaleidoscope: Pop Around The Clock, Saturday 1st June 2013

Post by Adrian Petford »

Hello everyone,

We are pleased to announce the schedule for our music-themed event in June.

Saturday 1st June 2013, 12:00 - 7:00 pm
Function Suite, The Talbot Hotel,
High Street, Stourbridge,
West Midlands DY8 1DW, UK
Free Admission


* 12:00 pm Thames start-up - opening the first day back after the 1984 Thames-only strike. Also includes the News at One opening titles.
* 12:05 pm Tiswas - musical higlights from the anarchic children's show. Featuring Roxy Music - Jealous Guy, Status Quo - Something 'bout You Baby I Like, Jake Thackray - The Tiswas Song and three songs and an interview by Sheena Easton. Sheena Easton also appears in Beat the Benny, featuring Crossroads' Paul Henry (TX: 28/02/1981).
* 12:30 pm Top of the Pops - The Cutting Room Floor. A special compilation of rarities from the BBC's flagship pop show, some being seen again for the first time in decades.
* Sandie Shaw - By Tomorrow (in colour, take 4). Recorded around February 1970, this wonderful discovery was always assumed to be a colour version of the existing black and white performance from 5th February 1970 but is in fact totally unique. It may never have actually been broadcast as the record did not make it into the charts.
* Hermans Hermits - Years May Come, Years May Go (TX: 12/02/1970).
* Family - Weavers Answer (TX: 27/08/1970).
* Fairweather - Natural Sinner (TX: 09/07/1970).
* Pan's People dance to Montego Bay (TX: 17/09/1970).
* Tremeloes - Me And My Life (TX: 17/09/1970).
* Michael Jackson - Rockin' Robin (June 1972).
* David Bowie - John I'm Only Dancing - a special Top of the Pops film featuring Ruth from Pan's People (TX: 28/09/1972).

* Roy Wood - Forever - previously undocumented and unbroadcast rehearsal footage for Top of the Pops of 20th December 1973 found on the end of the studio recording.
* Suzi Quatro - The Wild One - a performance unseen for almost forty years (TX: 28/11/1974).
* 1:10 pm Once More with Felix - folk rock singer Julie Felix is joined by Spike Milligan, Dave Swarbrick, Pedro Soler and Martin Carthy on her BBC show. Only 20 minutes survive from this edition (TX: 16/12/1967). Followed by The Kinks - Last Of The Steam Powered Trains/Picture Book on Once More with Felix (TX: 01/02/1969). Again the sole surviving footage from its edition, this performance was omitted from the Kinks on DVD release.
* 1:35 pm What the Magazines Say - John Peel talks about music magazines (TX: 29/07/1995).
* 1:50 pm Break
* 2:00 pm Guest Panel - Gillian Bailey. Starting her career as a child, Gillian is well remembered for singing and dancing on Here Come The Double Deckers, in the role of Billie. She also appeared in adaptations of classic children's literature including Follyfoot, Thursday's Child, The Witch's Daughter and the very famous 1968 version of The Railway Children. Other credits include Softly Softly, The Six Wives of Henry VIII, Angels, County Hall, The Adventurer, Poldark, The Onedin Line, Together and the first episode of Blake's 7. Since leaving the acting business in the nineties, Gillian has pursued an academic career and is now head of the Drama and Theatre department at the Royal Holloway University of London. In her role as Professor of Women's Theatre History, Gillian lectures on the role of women on television and their portrayal in the music business.
* 3.00 pm Afternoon Tea
* 3:30 pm Here Come The Double Deckers - musical highlights from the much-loved seventies children's show.

* 4:00pm The Dave Cash Radio Program - Disc jockey Dave Cash introduces Hilary Pritchard, Lulu, Mungo Jerry, The Sweet, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Patricia Gentry and Chris Andrews in this HTV production from 1972 (TX: 28/09/1972).
* 4:30 pm Pan's People - The Lost Performances - a special compilation of rare and previously missing routines from the sexy dance troupe, many being seen for the first time since the seventies. The clips were rediscovered by Kaleidoscope in the collection of record producer and songwriter Ian Levine. Former Top of the Pops cameraman John Henshall says "All in all this is a remarkable collection that manages to capture all the excitement and energy that made Top Of The Pops the greatest music show on television."
* Pan's People - Keep On Truckin' by Eddie Kendricks - a better quality copy than the existing colour telerecording (TX: 22/11/1973).
* Pan's People - Truck On Tyke by T.Rex. No footage has ever been found of T.Rex performing Truck On Tyke on any show anywhere in the world, so this previously unknown Pan's People routine is a doubly welcome find (TX: 06/12/1973).

Like all those Kaleidoscope offerings this looks like a fascinating line up I'll never get to see because I live too far away.

The reason I'm replying here is that German TV channel 3Sat frequently broadcasts 24 hours of vintage pop under the "Pop Around the Clock" banner. No idea whether this could have legal implications, but I thought you might like to know that.
Google tells me there's also an American popcorn store with the same name. :-)

As we've come to expect, another excellent line-up for Kal's music event . The Top Of The Pops compilation is a real highlight and I'm most looking forward to seeing Andy 'Fair Weather' Low's 'Natural Sinner', the Bowie film for 'John I'm Only Dancing' and the rehearsal footage of Roy Wood from 1973. On top of that Pans People dancing to T.Rex's 'Truck On Tyke', The Sweet on Dave Cash plus Suzi Quatro, Slade etc make it another must-see event.

Looks a great line up of rarely seen material

The Whittaker's world of music from what i've seen on You Tube looks an interesting show

It would be a great show to see a release of this - but being an ITV music show, I would be suprised if it ever made it on dvd

Great though Network are at releasing comedy and drama from the commercial channels- there's only really been The Tube compilation and The Marc Bolan series been released that i can recall.

You live in hope - I'm still waiting for the BBC to show the pop's recoveries that were screened last year and the year before

Will definately be at the Talbot though
