The Stranglers saved that edition of #TOTP from being just a novelty hits compilation.@BBCFOUR@StranglersSite
Still enjoyed it though.

Watching #totp82 on BBC4. Remember when we didn't trust The Stranglers because they were "old". They look young now.

#totp With the exception of The Stranglers it makes you realise how bad things were musically in 1982. Good God! Please make it stop!
