Top of Your Pops

Don't like a band? Watch another

As much as I dislike most pop music, I still have a soft spot for top of the pops, or indeed any television show with live music on. However these programmes seem to be indecline, with top of the pops being moved to sunday.

The problem seems to be music channels, which mean that people are able to choose whatever type of music they want to watch.

I propose that these music shows employ the red button on digital tv remotes, giving the viewer the choice of several bands to watch, possibly split up by genre.

"cool, Arcade Fire are on" (short time later) "ugh! who put Towers of London on?!" [red button, chandes from 'indie' to 'urban'] "nice one, The Streets" (short time later) "ah, not bloody Usher" [red button, chandes from 'urban' to 'dance'] "ace, LCD Soundsystem" and so on...

       Much more viable, but too similar to just surfing the music channels. I suppose you could run the whole of the top 40 simultaneously in half an hour, that way you might get to see the bands you were waiting for. A tentative bun.
