6-11-80: Presenters: Jimmy Savile O.B.E. & Richard Skinner
Or use this alternative link thanks to Neil B:
(33) KOOL & THE GANG – Celebration
A studio appearance for this classic song soon to become their second top ten hit when it made number 7.
(2) STATUS QUO – What You’re Proposing ®
Now at its peak position.
(19) DENNIS WATERMAN with THE DENNIS WATERMAN BAND – I Could Be So Good For You
A fine live vocal from Dennis here with the theme tune from Minder which became his only top ten hit reaching number 3. Then comes a guest appearance from a somewhat unenthusiastic Robert Palmer giving away his latest record to a very polite girl.
(18) STEPHANIE MILLS – Never Knew Love Like This Before (video)
Making its way up the charts towards number 4.
(NEW) NEIL DIAMOND – Love On The Rocks (video)
A taster from his movie The Jazz Singer, this became Neil's final top 20 hit.
(29) ROXY MUSIC – The Same Old Scene
A very sparkly dressed Legs & Co do Bryan and the boys proud here with their routine.
(25) UB40 – The Earth Dies Screaming
Another 1980 nuclear bomb song which gave UB40 their third top ten hit of the year.
(21) MOTÖRHEAD – Ace Of Spades
Perhaps their best known tune, though surprisingly it only made it to number 15.

Oh boy, it's that time already. But we'll have to wait a little longer to hear this one as its missing from the end of this recording.
