TOP OF THE POPS 12/3/87

Missing from the current BBC 4 reruns as a result of a dodgy contract for Mike Smith.

The full line-up for the show was:

Alison Moyet – cover

Jackie Wilson – Inexplicable plasticine revival follow up

Nick Kamen – Levi’s model

Freddie Mercury – cover

Beastie Boys – white boy rap

Boy George – cover

Frankie Goes To Hollywood – symbolic passing of the Big in Japan torch.

The time was right for something new and it had already been of the shelves for three days.

And then there’s this.
