Tony Blackburn back on TOTP

Top of the Pops, the UK’s longest running weekly TV chart show marks its final countdown this weekend, and helping to celebrate 42 years of pop, the god of radio, the man we all love, Tony Blackburn, will be presenting his special part of the show.

Other previous presenters including Sir Jimmy Savile, Janice Long, Mike Read, Pat Sharp, Reggie Yates and Edith Bowman will have their own slot. Like the very first show, this programme will begin with the Rolling Stones – on this occasion performing The Last Time from the Sixties on tape – and conclude with this week’s No.1.

The one hour special will air on BBC TWO this Sunday (30th July) at 7pm, and celebrates the programme’s glorious history with many of the greatest performances through the decades including The Rolling Stones, Spice Girls, Wham, Madonna, Beyonce and Robbie Williams.
