Here’s someone we haven’t seen for a while, Stewpot, last seen on this channel almost exactly a year ago inviting us to get a pencil and paper ready to write down our suggested names for their new dance troupe. He’d done another episode since then but we didn’t see that because it was wiped, and this is his last hurrah before concentrating on the juvenile end of the market. Unfortunately we don’t get any punk, which is a shame as we’d love to see how he’d have dealt with the likes of The Adverts, but we do have Donna Summer’s trillionth single of the year.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
1979 here, but of course on BBC4 we’re a few weeks ahead so some of the tracks Tony plays will have been and gone from our perspective, though there’s a chance to hear the likes of Born To Be Alive, Babylon’s Burning and Morning Dance which got pretty short shrift due to the various dropped shows. Then it’s the music that accompanied the last Scottish Commonwealth Games (plus Creamguide’s holiday to West Wales, fact fans) this week in 1986.
