BBC1 Top Of The Pops 7.25 - 7.55 pm

NB It's likely that Rod Stewart was scheduled to appear on tonight's show to promote Tonight's The Night, but at the last minute they decided not to play the record. The single was being played by Radio One, so there was no outright ban on the record by the BBC. A spokesman for Rod's record company Riva told Record Mirror "They had the single for six weeks and OK'd It. They didn't question the lyrics until the day before Rod was due to appear. We had by then booked the musicians and altered Rod's schedule on the Continent". Eventually it was used as a playout record on the 17th June show.
