NB It was inferred that a show where viewers telephoned in and requested a song couldn’t be that spontaneous and that the viewers phone calls were never actually heard on the air. However, 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 besides the Post Office claimed the phone calls wouldn’t be of sufficient quality to broadcast.

NB The original project was to be titled London By Night but that format was abandoned as Davis had committments to perform two shows a night at the Pigalle in Paris therefore didn't afford ABC time to produce the intended location shots. One of the shots the producers wanted was a sequence at Battersea Fun Fair. The show was then recorded in a studio, but for contractual reasons couldn't be broadcast while he was still in the country.

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 whose Wham!! was about to be dropped by ABC 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.’ A BBC spokesman talking to The Stage said "Juke Box Jury is to continue but no beat music only programmes have been scheduled".

ATV Val Parnell’s Sunday Night At The London Palladium (first in new series)

NB Host Forsyth was already performing two shows a night in Blackpool and then having to return to London to host this show. He had been told to take things easy on medical advice, so it was likely that he would drop the weekly Palladium show. It was rumoured that Des O'Connor would take over as host, beginning next week, but the job went to little known comic Don Arrol.
