THE COOL SPOT

BBC
17th July 1964 - 1st September 1964

A one-off series, following the previous year’s Hot Ice, where ice-skaters would perform an ice-dance interpretation of a new release on record. This time the musical acts would make an actual appearance with The Yardbirds being guests on the first show. It only lasted a few weeks. Hosted by David Jacobs it was recorded at the ice rink in Nottingham.
