Style: The Way I Was: My June moon swoon song: Nicholas Roe hears how Jonathan King talked his way on to Top of the Pops
Saturday 05 December 1992
WE'RE talking 1965, and this is me as a very innocent teenager, being photographed for the music sheet for 'Everyone's Gone to the Moon'. I was in my first year at Trinity College, Cambridge, and some people were wanting to produce a record for me. Suddenly my urgent ambition to become a pop star looked as though it was going to happen.
Keep the dry ice, bring back Pan's People: Top of the Pops is under fire again. William Leith works out what's wrong with it
Sunday 12 July 1992
THEY wouldn't let me in the Top of the Pops studio to watch the programme being made this week: the person dealing with the press never seemed to be available. 'She's on holiday,' I was told, and, strangely, a replacement had not been appointed. What was happening? Were the people at Top of the Pops being obstructive because of newspaper reports like the one in the Guardian which said: 'It is thought likely that the show will be killed off next year'? 'Look,' said the producer Stan Appel, 'we're not facing the axe. It's just a rumour. A rumour started by the press, some of whom don't like us.'
