NB It was inferred that the show where viewers rang the show and requested a song couldn’t be that spontaneous and that the viewers phone calls were never actually heard on the air. But the show’s producers claimed that since so many songs had ‘eyes’, ‘heart’, ‘love’ etc in the title it was easy to get the scenery set up quickly and also the Post Office claimed the phone calls wouldn’t be of sufficient quality to broadcast.

The Daily Mirror runs a story pointing out that both BBC and ITV have dropped dedicated rock and roll shows and in the future teenage music will only be included in more general appeal variety shows. Jack Good said ‘I don't think these programmes have lost their appeal and I'm sorry to see them go. I think British television is making a big mistake.’
