An intriguing piece on the student pop scene and Top of the Pops, which at that time was filmed in a disused Wesleyan chapel on Dickenson Road, Rusholme (former home of Mancunian Films).

Phil Tagg describes TOTP as 'tweedily reserved ' in comparison to Ready Steady Go.

He also mentions The Who's imminent visit to the Union.

Taken from the Manchester Independent newspaper, written and edited by University of Manchester students. With thanks to James Peters at the University of Manchester Archives and Ben Ward at University of Manchester Students' Union.
