A forerunner to Pop Quiz and Yorkshire's Pop Quest but this one was aimed at more adult pop fans. As Radio Times put it "A light-hearted pop quiz in which two teams pit their wits, to answer questions on pop music past and present."

Hosted by Terry Wogan and introduced by Capital Radio's Roger Scott who also Captained one team of celebrities, with Tim Rice leading the other.

The show was recorded on location from various discotheques across the country and broadcast Sunday afternoons. A live band would perform each week. Produced by Terry Henebery, it would only run for one season. Two shows are thought to exist.
