First viewed : January 1984
We are more or less done with children's TV but I do recall watching a couple of episodes of this ITV music series at the beginning of 1984. Razzmatazz ran from 1981 to 1986 and was very similar to Cheggers Plays Pop with its mix of lip-synched performances and children's games . The show had various presenters with Alistair Pirrie having the longest run although the most famous with hindsight was a 17-year old Lisa Stansfield ( who hated the experience ) for a season in 1983.
The only two performances I recall were of complete turkeys - I suppose it's because I didn't hear them anywhere else - David Grant's Organise and the Boomtown Rats's Tonight .
