So, the end of an institution and that... but does anyone care anymore after what they've done to it these last few years?

Quite enjoyed it on Sunday. Muse were on, but the presenters were shockingly bad. So they're not even continuing with it on BBC 2 now?
Guillemots were on too - but I don't rate their new song too much. Strange that Radio 1 are playing it.... There's an album out soon, so I'm guessing the next single will be a full scale re-release of Trains To Brazil. It's bound to/has to happen.

I got given the Guillemots album in advance for working at that gig. It's a wonderful record.

wot about the occasional cheesefest that is TOTP2?

It's been on the life support for ages now - so they're only just getting around to switching it off? Bloody hell. They took their time over it!
It's way past its sell by date and its passing will be mourned by many but remembered by few.
Some of us have long stopped caring about - or indeed watching - TOTP. I think I last watched one complete edition from start to finish in 1987 or something.

I have fond memories of the 1990s when they had guest presenters like Tony Wright (from Terrorvision) and Jarvis Cocker... then they bought back in the new generation of Radio 1 no-marks...
