    I can't take any more right now. 1987 was really quite shit. At least to start with.

    I’m agog at the talent on Ferry Aid

    Keren Woodward solo!
    Brexit’s Su Pollard!
    Anne Diamond!
    Nasty Nick Cotton!
    Linda Lusardi minge!

    Bigger than Band Aid and Race For Life COMBINED!

    Once again, an episode was skipped. This time between what we saw last night, on Thursday (19/03/87) and tonight, on Friday (02/04/87). It's no surprise who was hosting...

    Herb Alpert - WTF? I thought he was very much left in the 1960s.

    'Twas a brief comeback. Ultimately, if the co-founder of A&M records, a really huge label at the time, says he's going to make another album, you'd better believe that marketing team are going to pull their fingers out of their arses and go all out.

    To be fair up to a point it was quite a decent line up, Kate Bush, Boy George, Andy Bell etc... But then SCREAMING LORD SUCH, CARMEN from BREAD, MANDY SMITH and GLORIA HUNIFORD,

    In fairness, Bob Geldof padded Band Aid by asking some large bands - UB40 and Kool And The Gang had about 20 members between them...

    And another Smith edition. This time from 09/04/87 featuring such delights as:

    The Rainmakers – “Let My People Go-Go” (28)
    Club Nouveau – “Lean On Me” (6) (video)
    The Blow Monkeys – “Out With Her” (30)
    Judy Boucher – “Can’t Be With You Tonight” (14)
    Living In A Box – “Living In A Box” (23) (breaker)
    Bon Jovi – “Wanted Dead Or Alive” (17) (breaker)
    Terence Trent D’Arby – “If You Let Me Stay” (7)
    Ferry Aid – “Let It Be” (1) (video)
    Whitesnake – “Still Of The Night” (22) (video/credits)

    Apologies for the awful "test transmition" beeping at the start (and the same for the one I posted yesterday) but it seems the person who uploads them has access to the BBC Archive system (hence the awful BBC Archive logo on the top left of the screen). A better version does get posted by former Dotmusic poster Acer Ben but his seems to miss out the intro for some reason.

    It's good to be reminded of David Bowie being terrible.

    I have no recollection of Rikki as a UK Eurovision entry. To be fair it was fairly contemporary, I assume he was terrible.

    Let's not forget Herb was about to team up with A&M's all time cash cow JANET JACKSON for the ACTUALLY QUITE GOOD "Diamonds".

    But other than that, he was GASH in 1987.
