The Roxy was ITV`s version of Top Of The Pops. Remember, ITV had had previous success with that other fab music programme, The Tube? The Roxy hit our screens in 1987, presented by David Jensen and Kevin Sharkey. On its first show it featured music from Erasure and from then on mainly focussed on pop music of its time - Bananarama, Duran Duran, Five Star and so on - much like Top Of The Pops. Unfortunately, its demise was largely due to the fact that filming took place ins tudios in Newcastle-upon-Tyne - what band would travel all that way for a three-minute slot on the show, really? The Roxy ended a year later.
