And somewhere in Suffolk, or wherever he was living at the time, a bearded man sobs.
ALSO ON THIS DAY:
- 1978: interesting show all round, this, as Tony Blackburn uncomfortably introduces a peeved Elvis Costello - note pointed gesticulation - and the revelation of what happens if you make Legs & Co (Patti, Lulu and Pauline at least)'s outfits with only tinsel to hand. Last week I discussed Legs & Co appearing on the 1978 BBC VT Christmas tape, but in 1977 a fuller lineup in oddly Spanish outfits gave Instant Replay a seperate run-through.
- 1995: in case you'd ever wondered, this is Cher's natural hairstyle.
