Can’t fix it now. I meant the title to be Top of the Pops versus American Bandstand. Maybe a gort can help. I Wish There Was Cable and Satellite TV in the 70’s was another title I thought of - and that my parents would have had the means to afford it. This is not a sarcastic statement. Yes, from what I have seen of the few samples I have watched on YouTube, TOTP could get VERY cheesy indeed. But even at its very worst, TOTP was far more interesting than American Bandstand. Case in point - Lieutenant Pigeon would never, under any circumstances, have been featured on American Bandstand. Even if they had a Billboard charting hit here. AB was very vanilla and super mainstream. I found 4 episodes from the 70’s - 1972, 1973, 1975, 1976. I found some music that was as bad as the costumes were to be sure, but I found some treasures too. I learned who Kenny Everett was. I saw Slade twice, T Rex lip synching to Metal Guru, Status Quo twice, Steve Harley and the Cockney Rebels, a band called Mud that I have never heard of, I mean some really great music. In my case I do not care about the lip synching, though some of it was reputed to have live vocals. Just to see Slade and T Rex in the early 70’s alone is worth wading through rivers of schlock. Yeah, and can’t forget Pan’s Dancers all in red dancing to “Ghetto Child” by the Detroit Spinners! I feel deprived!
