The BBC are rerunning Top of the Pops from 1976 just now.
TOTP, as it's called, was a music show dedicated to the chart hits of the moment. Something like Dick Clark's Bandstand for you ex-Colonials.
But Jebus, some of the hits, even the Number 1s, were truly terrible.
Naturally I quite enjoy them.
Yet Pop music is, and always has been, about people voting with their money.
And I still can't understand why this didn't get to the toppermost of the poppermost.
