1963 - 1965

A 'name that tune' show where people were asked to name a song after only two notes. Hosts included Peter Murray, Muriel Young, and in October 1965 former Ready Steady Go host David Gell took over. Peter Fenn, later the regular organist on Sale of the Century provided the music that had to be identified. There were weekly music guests.

Pete Murray returned as host of a re-vamped version in October 1970 which would last until the new year. A cash prize of £100 was up for grabs each week. Peter Joy who produced the original version was now back and introduced a cabaret spot in each show, Carol Dilworth and Jennifer Cresswell were Murray's assistants.
