I'm not going to try to defend Quiet Riot -- in fact, their cover has made Slade's original unlistenable for me now, as I can hear nothing but 1983's dullard roar.

I remember hearing this came in at number one as well on the Johnnie Walker show, they were really popular in my junior school at the time and I've still got the single, better than the xmas hit they were about to have, they performed it on TOTP the week before it made number one as did GG with I love you love, the only difference being the Slade record still sounds good today.

"We Gotta Get Out Of This Place" really should have been a number one.

Another appearance by Noddy on the Stuart Maconie Radio 2 show last night - if you have one of those newfangled Radio Player thingies – where he was mainly talking about curry (Slade first visited the States in 1972 and asked where they could find an Indian restaurant – their host thought they meant a Red Indian themed restaurant!) but told a long story about how they first teamed up with Chas Chandler.

My hunch is Doctor Casino may be in the running for youngest, he's midtwenties at most. DanielRF or some such posts here some also right? Anyhow I'd give this a 'ten'. RE: Quiet Riot I will say that their cover (not that any of us knew it was a cover) provoked a fervor in third grade (fourth grade?) matched by very few (Prince, Michael Jackson, Madonna, and the Fat Boys basically). And the corresponding album cover seemed nearly as awesome/terrifying to behold staring out at me from my Aunt's album collection as Queen's News of the World (STRONG PRAISE).

OK then, just turned 45 and mine would be attached to the Shadows’ “Wonderful Land”.

Erithian: Rosie – I hope your remark about moving on doesn’t mean you’re about to leave us! Oh, I didn't know you were missing me - I'd moved on to the next thread!. It's nice to feel appreciated! I have no intention of leaving, at least not for a while yet. As I intimated, we've passed through the period when everything was utterly familiar to me, into one where I'm familiar with some (like Slade), unfamiliar with others, know things I thought I didn't and didn't know things I thought I did. This was because by 1973 I'd moved on to other things - I liked Pink Floyd and Genesis and ELP (I still do, and it's going to be fun when we get to punk), although I'll be in touch with the charts again in a few years time. Meanwhile it's an adventure and a learning experience. By the way, I'm 53 in three weeks and my stork is attached to David Whitfield's Cara Mia

Tom and I are both 34, but that's not exactly the first flush of youth.

I wasn't a teenager until 1980. Does this make me the youngest? Sorry, you got me on Quiet Riot. There are some songs that can't be covered, and this seems to be one of 'em.

Ah! I noticed Rosie opened comments on the next Number One. St Bernard back in the kennel...for the time being! Yes, come on, Doctor Mod. Cards on the table!

I wonder sometimes who Popular’s youngest regular reader is! I want to claim turf as oldest at 54 in October. Doc Mod was same age but alas she's still holding out on us.

DJs having a matey sneer at ver pop hits of the day is only a good thing if what they're playing instead is actually better surely!! Not unlikely in the case of Walker and the Rollers I'm sure, but the current mob at Radio 1 plays this particular game a lot and gets it wrong almost every time.

By: Erithian

DJs with attitude – like it! I remember now JW described the Rollers as “musical garbage” on air. Way to go... When Mike Sweeney was on Piccadilly Radio in Manchester he famously refused to play anything by a certain quartet of tuneful Swedes. So much so that he made a jingle of someone going “’AVE YER GOT ANY ABBA?” just so he could sneer “NO!!”

A quick shudder as I remember that these are events of 30-odd years ago that we fortysomethings are talking about, and the equivalent for us would have been oldies telling stories of Vera Lynn and ITMA. It’s sobering to note that the exact mid-point between VE Day and today is the long hot summer of ’76! – just shows how elastic time can seem.

Oh yes, "Pop The Question". Happy Days! We used to sing "Hop-Hop-Hop Hop-Hop the lesson Nowwwww!" when we didn't fancy double maths. And, yes, Johnny W was invited to leave very soon after the Bay City Rollers slur (whoops, spolier!). The Head of Radio One (Derek Chinnery, I think it was) pleaded with him that "you have a lunch time show with lots of kids listening and you can't just slag off the chart acts". As Private Fraser would say "he was doooomed!!!!!!!" I hope any teens reading these ramblings are indeed interested in some of this. I was one myself at that time, although I never quite got into old time music hall. Leonard Sachs did nothing for me at all.
