Top of the Pops at 50: should the BBC bring it back?

Russell Mael from Sparks recalls waking up to a transformed world the day after his group crash-landed in the public consciousness with This Town Ain't Big Enough for Both of Us: "Nothing could have prepared me for the suddenness of the reaction.

Interviewed by Guardian writer Ian Gittins for his book Top of the Pops
