The Pepsi chart show? That was channel 5 wasn't it? Just after the channel started. I don't know the viewers but it was a better show than Top of the Pops was at the time.

I still miss The Roxy, especially with the great Gordon Elsbury at the helm.

This new BBC music show will be a failure and will be forgotten like CD:UK.

The producers of this show should have been watching "Children In Need Rocks The 80s" for ideas on how to improve - better staging, better atmosphere & better music.

Wasn't bad nor great that gig.

Great to see Erasure he still has it and OMD still sound brilliant.

Europe do look like a wedding band these days.

Only real complaints was the presenters and Boys George.

I am surprised they didn't get Mickey Thomas Starship to perform.

But I couldn't see Vince Clarke with Andy Bell? Without Vince then surely it is not Erasure.

So am I - as long as it is vastly improved; perhaps they would like to employ me to straighten it out?

Anyone remember the Hitman and Her? They played the stuff that my generation were listening to, at least for a brief interval in the very late 1980s and early 1990s.

He has a great record collection apparently. Or so he said in an interview he did with Q magazine he did years ago. I think he said he has about 5,000 CD's.

In spite of poor reviews and appalling ratings, the BBC have brought this back for another try. It will be interesting to see if they have learned anything from what they did badly last time.

I was hoping this series would be better; it isn't. Sadly the problem is - they book names, not good music. Almost every artiste tonight has made a good or even great track but the Producers allow them to do the new release (invariably awful). If they made Mehgan Trainer do "all about the base" (no treble) - super. Combined with great new current releases by unknown artistes with a future mass appeal hit. Add bits like United DJs have such as "the story behind the hit song". So simple. 20 mins of crossover smashes with ten minutes of witty, funny or interesting moments. Ratings. Success. I did it in the 80s with Entertainment USA and No Limits.

1.66 million viewers in the overnight ratings - which means over a million One Show viewers switched off as soon as it started. I expect it will shed further viewers over the run.

Why can't BBC just learn from the American Show ' Midnight Special'?

Rock/metal is not dead yet.

Anyone heard the new Styx album ?

Overnight ratings for Sounds Like Friday Night have fallen to 1.32m - that's only 8.5% of the viewing audience, and it looks like it's not getting a much higher percentatge of the 16-34 demographic they are aiming at. Having said that The Vaccines were not bad last night (though a little derivative), and Nile Rogers would have been excellent if we had got more than a minute. Shawn Mendes could barely be heard as the audience singing along were mixed higher than his vocals. I'm not sure how they can justify Dotty's trips around the world to conduct 5 minute long interviews.
