“How long has the album been got together, as it were?”

This being the week of the BPI Awards, here’s a helping from 1980 back when it was still the Radio 1 Daily Mirror Nationwide (precise order open to debate) Rock and Pop Awards.

Highlights include DLT’s many attempts at jocular adlibbery (“Oh Katy Katy, you look a bit shattered…No plugs for Walt Disney please”), Sue in a flattering outfit introducing Leo Sayer (“A gentleman for whom I personally have a very soft spot”), BA Robertson pissing about, the Numanoid looking comatose and the fact Cliff came third in the Best Male category. It’d be nice if the audience shut up now and then.

Meanwhile here’s 1989’s roustabout in full.
