Another of those myths punctured

I remember watching one of those mildly entertaining, but cheap, clip shows about errors on TV.
One featured Dexy’s Midnight Runners on Top of the Pops, singing “Jackie Wilson says”. Behind them on huge video screen was a picture of… larger than life darts player Jocky Wilson. The implication being it was a mistake made by the production team.

Only it wasn’t, it was all a joke. Kevin Rowland, Dexy’s front man, had asked for that slide deliberately. Funny thing is he said that in an interview in 2002, and the clip show wasn’t that long ago I’m sure.

How urban myth lingers.

Oh and yeah, while we’re at it. Bob Holness did not play saxaphone on Baker Street.
