TV: Z is for...

Z Shed

Noel grabs three seconds for a smile before embarking on another helicopter-powered po-faced finger-pointing anti-government dementahonThe genesis of [cref 3091 SWAP SHOP], according to Noel, in the shape of a weekly half-hour live phone-in discussion for kids every Wednesday throughout June and July of 1975, concentrating on a different topic each week. They were: Appearance, Friends, Parents, Pocket Money, School, Fears, Fashions, Brothers & Sisters, Pets, and, er, Friends again. Already with an eye for a recyclable format, the man Edmonds was soon fashioning the chattiness and discussion elements into a “What’s your question for Toyah?” and “What have you got to swap?” agenda. Cheers Noel!
