Oxford Road Show, The

orsTEXTBOOK WORTHY-BUT-DULL show on “issues” for “young adults” by “young adults” presented from a scaffolding-riddled studio on Oxford Road, Manchester (hence the title – not, as many thought, a travelling Radio 1-style revue of scarf-wearing dons, though maybe that would have been more entertaining).

    Much excitement in our house when our elder cousins went to be in the audience for one of these shows circa 1982. The two appeared in shot behind Hot Gossip, who were performing a lewd and mildly pretentious cover of The Human League’s “Circus Of Death”. We laughed and laughed and laughed.

    Our. World. Too.
