Razzamatazz

This was a kids' pop music show. I think the producers had a pretty low budget as they would have acts on it that were unsuccessfull or just plain rubbish. However, the kids on the show always seemed to be having a really good time and the show was immortalised on the cover of Bow Wow Wow's 'I want Candy Album'. The elusive Kate Bush gave a rare performance of her track 'There Goes a Tenner'. I seem to remember there was a popular competition called 'Peggy Babcock' in which the kids had to recite a poem very fast involving that tongue-twister of a name. Overall, it was a good show with some enthusiastic presenters who genuinely seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as the kids.

    The only part of this programme I have memories of is the Peggy Babcock part.

    I went there once, with others from my year at school, to be part of the audience. Gary Moore (from Thin Lizzy fame) was appearing with the song "out in the fields", I think it was called. I got a chance to quickly say to him, "good look with the single!", as he walked across to the stage. He looked at me suprised and said "errr, thanks!". At the end we all recieved a Razzbag containing goodies as a souvenir. Great memories!

    Lisa Stansfield was a co-resenter for a while with Alastair Pirrie. She could have only been about 14 at the time.
