From the TV Times, "Britian's "Top Pop" musicians introduce their enw recordings, and their numbers that made them famous. They meet their fans and talk about their careers." Yet another short-lived afternoon pop show from ABC's early days.

Jacqueline Mackenzie was the host with Norman Percival and his Clubmen providing the music.

A competition was held towards the end of the show's life for three winners to join the stars in studio.

The final show was listed in daily newspapers as 29th December 1956, but the TV Times listed it's replacement Musical Cheers with Noele Gordon instead.
