WHAM!!

ABC
23rd April 1960 - 18th June 1960

Another Saturday evening ABC rock n roll show, produced by Jack Good and hosted by Keith Fordyce. This attempt to get back to the Oh Boy! formula only lasted eight shows and featured Billy Fury, The Vernons Girls, Jess Conrad and Oh Boy! guitarist Joe Brown.

Explaining the reason for cancelling the the show the broadcaster contended that "ABC thinks there is no longer a public for teenage rock 'n' roll type programmes."
