Britain's biggest hits of the 70s: 1973 3 Weeks ago  
Watching this show on Friday on channel 5, I was curious what would happen when the chart countdown came to a certain artist who happened to be very successful in 1973.

It got to No. 7 in the countdown and It reached the position for the aforementioned Mr. Gadd with "I love You Love". What would they do I thought, skip it entirely, show it but mention in the commentary all the horrendous crimes he did, or just show it and talk about the music with a trigger warning before. In fact, they just showed a still picture and a few seconds of the song, naming the song and its writers (Gary Glitter and Mike Leander). Another example of trying to wipe people out of history. I'm not saying that he should be celebrated, but the song shouldn't be ignored and its small part in musical history shouldn't be erased. The BBC is always accused of this, but it is all of the mainstream media who do this.
Sadly channel 5 do not put this show on their on-demand service my5, so you'll have to wait for the repeat.

Imagine the backlash, Twitter mob and victims of child abuse harassing Channel 5, even the media will give Channel 5 or any artist mentioned on the programme. Twitter and MSM are in control of the narratives these days.

Don't Sony own Gary Glitter's music now, so any royalties that are made will go to Sony ??

Come to think of it, I think they might have skipped Michael Jackson.
Or maybe I just missed some?

Either the producer of the show are clueless or that he is a Chuck Berry fan regardless. Some people idolise serial killers for goodness sake.
