As an 'avid', I say bring back Brian (no offence, Tony)!
As long as The Collector and Bob Stanley stay on behind the scenes.
I think Tony is the first TOTP presenter to pronounce Depeche Mode correctly.
Tony Blackburn, Bucks Fizz...
How much cheese can you fit in one studio?
'Drop The Pilot' - quality record!!
I'm trying to remember what I was doing back in March 1983 because I have absolutely no memory of those last two songs.
I did buy the Joan Armatrading album that Drop The Pilot was on though ("The Key", since you ask).
That introduction for Joan was a polite way of saying 'She has not had a chart hit since 1976'.
classic song, dont remember the artist at all to look at, probably mostly heard it on the radio
I always thought Joan Armatrading was mentioned in Angel of Harlem, apparently not
I mean, I can see why John Coltrane would make more sense but I'm sticking with Joan. Fine singer.

Epic song, I don't think anyone would have sang it as well as Bonnie.

Crank it up!
Tony's wig has just blown off.
