Re: Horrible Story..

The judge was clearly an Erasure fan. "The court heard that he had told Dr Anneka John-Kamen, a psychiatrist, that he had gone to the West End after hearing the song West End Girls on the radio, believing it was giving him instructions. Hilliard dismissed the significance of this ." https://www.theg...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

The special guest is bound to be either Olly from Years and Years on the first single from the new album, or possibly Jean-Claude Juncker dueting with Neil on You Only Tell Me You Love Me When You're Drunk.

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

On last week's live episode, PSB opened the show with the second-highest new entry, and rather unusually, all of the top four singles were shown - T'Pau, Rick Astley, Michael Jackson and PSB. This week, they've moved imperiously past Rick to occupy top spot in the week before Christmas. But can they...

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

‘Rent’ is on next Friday’s episode which is the 22nd October 1987 edition. Quite a different performance for the boys and for me this was the first arrival of Neil’s short hair!! The absence of the Smith episodes has accelerated the imperiousness of this run of singles; the Motown harmony of What H...

Re: No pics but you can film them

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

Technical error with the playout file according to BBC4 controller. Was briefly on iPlayer through SkyHD but it’s been removed now I believe - but not before I downloaded and watched it. Good episode. Apparently might be shown tonight but it’s still scheduled for late Saturday night. Phew! I though...
