Trivia

A memorable (for the wrong reasons) moment came when the British group All About Eve made their first appearance on the show in August 1988, to perform their new single "Martha's Harbour". As the song began playing, a technical error resulted in everybody apart from the group being able to hear it, but lead singer Julianne Regan simply sat on stage, unaware she was supposed to be singing. By the time she was informed the song was playing, it was almost over, resulting in her only actually performing the last verse. The group was invited back on the following week, with Regan choosing to sing live. See more »

All it is is music performances and a chart rundown
19 October 2003 | by GreatwhitewhaleSee all my reviews

I tend to switch over when someone rubbish plays. But when someone good plays, I watch. I find the presenters quite annoying, they need comedians like Johnny Vegas not Fearne Cotton! And it's such a BBC programme, it bigs up Lame Academy!
