11th March 1967 to 27th June 1967
A basic cheap and cheerful pop show, more in line with Thank Your Lucky Stars than Top Of The Pops. This Mike Mansfield production was initially introduced by Pete Murray, replaced by Radio Luxembourg DJ Don Moss with Daily Express / Radio One journalist David Wigg also contributing. It was quickly picked up other ITV stations hoping to draw viewers away from the likes of Dee Time. It must have been reasonably well regarded in the business judging by the acts that appeared. Despite a good Saturday evening placement it didn't catch on with the public and was dropped three months into its run.
