Tears for Fears there, another band who surprisingly never had a Number One.

Mad World, ain't it?


And yet they had two number ones in America

Toto's drummer died in a bizarre gardening accident.

I dont remember this top 10 ten video section at all


I don't think it lasted very long, Kid Jensen tried to get it going but no-one else was interested.

'Billie Jean' - great song.

Shame the album flopped

The Breakers segment managed to last nine years, though...

Even Pat Sharp's recommendation a few weeks ago couldn't help that turkey.

Tony Blackburn hasn't changed a bit.

Still does dozens of radio shows, and he got a new Radio 2 gig today

Saturday mornings on BBC Radio 2 are changing, with Tony Blackburn from 6am and Dermot O’Leary from 8am.

Tony will take over Sounds of the 60s from Brian Matthew in its new timeslot, whilst Dermot will front a new Saturday Breakfast show between 8am and 10am.

I always listen to sounds of the sixties on Sat mornings and delighted that Tony's back but it suggests that Brian Matthews is not well sadly.

^ Good choice, although Brian Mathew will be missed...still don't know when - or if - he'll return.
