    A favourite weekly program on British TV in the 1970's, it's where most of us got a first look at the music that would scar us for a generation.. Especially after your Dad's discouraging comments!!! FUN for ALL the family..

    I 'll start with this one...

    This....Dave from the Beat and Horace from The Specials changed bands during the show. The Beat played the same night.

    I did TOTP in the mid 00s and basically we fake played instruments with live vocals. Do they still do it like that?

    I saw them live in Finland must have been mid 1980s. They were very drunk, but managed to stumble through the gig :).

    That's mostly how they've done since it started.
