Paul - couple of corrections for you. Show 15 (25th December 1976) CHRISTMAS SHOW 1976 (40 minutes) ** Marc Bolan - New York City - this was tx. The other two T.Rex tracks, The Soul Of My Suit and I Love To Boogie, were never broadcast although they survive. The show's finale was a rendition of We Wish You A Merry Christmas, which included Gary Glitter, T.Rex, Russell Harty, Joanna Lumley, Guys and Dolls etc.
Show 28 (2nd April 1977) **
Marc Bolan & Dave Edmunds - Sweet Little Rock'n'Roller - this was actually the show's finale which was performed by Marc, Dave E, Alvin Stardust, Dave Davis, Gloria Jones, Elkie Brooks etc.
By the way, thanks for compiling such an extensive list. Supersonic was one of only 2 UK shows who would let the Rubettes perform 'Under One Roof'. (The other was Pop At The Mill) The band were actually booked for TOTP, then dropped when the subject matter of the song came to light. Radio One dropped it from the playlist as well.
I love reading episode guides, particularly with the pop shows. So this one is welcomed too. Can anyone post some more on here? I really liked seeing Lift Off. I never get tired of this type of thing and don't have access to much. So it's very useful to me.
I'm maybe not the first person to moan about the fact but the B.F.I. database isn't a list of what they have in their archive, Paul. I found out the hard way myself after getting excited about their listings. All it is is an index of some programmes that were made. It's a confusing resource.
