    I’ve just discovered this interesting link. It shows that the BBC created radio programmes, music cassette tapes and tv productions for their “Music Workshop” programme aimed at primary schools throughout the 60’s 70’s,...

  • The Emperor's Garden? Music Class, 1992

    I’m trying to find a primary school based programme that was shown to me in the years 1991 to 1992.

    It was music class, and we all used to sing from a book. There would be different books that we would follow for a few weeks, and then we’d go onto something new.

    I’m new to this forum, so I haven’t had a detailed look. I haven’t seen any recent mention of vol-au-vents, so that’s why I started off this post....

    I didn’t realise some shopping centres still played Muzak. The last I heard it was when seeing videos of the World Trade Centre plaza and the underground shopping centre, before that fateful day that the towers came down. One song sticks out in my mind, it was an instrumental version of “She’s...

    Yes, I remember the Test Card and Ceefax music too. Saxophone melodies and solos. Very similar to supermarket music.

    My other post on here is about Vaporwave. This micro genre has elements of Muzak too. It’s a good read. Feel free to comment and discuss ...

    Supermarket Music

    1988… Being dragged around Gateway supermarket by my mum. Hated it. Boring for a five year old. However, the music that was playing kept my spirits up.

    Muzak, or more simply “Supermarket Music”. Terrible tunes, bossa nova rhythms and flute melodies. The whole thing was...

  • It wasn’t Shallow Grave. I’m pretty sure it was an American film. And it was definitely 80’s.

    Thanks for replying though ...

    Vaporwave

    In the last few years, I’ve been fascinated by Vaporwave. Although it began to show emergence in the early 2010’s, its popularity seemed to be prominent in the early 2020’s. I think this may have been due to the covid lockdown restrictions, where people were starting to make music...

  • What was this low budget 80’s movie?

    Not much to go on with this one.

    I remember seeing an 80’s film on TV around 25 years ago as I was flicking channels.

    All I remember is a big guy with a spade (or shovel). I think he had learning difficulties or something, and he hit a younger guy on the back of the...

    Vol-au-vents!

    As a child, growing up in the 80’s and early 90’s, I used to attend some parties at local Working Men’s Clubs. I have fond memories of mullet wearing DJ’s playing awful songs like Agadoo, The Birdie Song and Superman; whilst hanging around the toilets with the other kids that...

  • Hi Tim,

    It’s really annoying when there’s something locked in your memory, and very vague.

    The first thing I thought of was “Through The Dragons Eye”. It was shown as a segment on Words and Pictures.

    The “crystals” you mention…...

  • Oh, thanks Richard1978!

    God, this has been driving me up the wall for years! Wasn’t sure if I dreamt this or not, because everyone I asked didn’t have a clue!

    just watched some clips on YouTube and I vividly remember Nicechap; howerever, I can’t remember the...

  • Yes! I remember this.

    It looked like it was from the 70’s, however, they were still showing it to us when I was in year 2 or 3 of primary school (1988 or 1989).

    There was a boy who with two of his cousins, and they were trying to teach him the dangers of building sites....
