Pan’s People – Back Stabbers

Top of the Pops, 28 September 1972: Pan’s People dance to Back Stabbers by The O’Jays.

Ruby Flipper – Disco Duck

TOTP, 23 September 1976: Ruby Flipper dance to Disco Duck by Rick Dees And His Cast Of Idiots. Silly, very silly, but fun. Floid’s pantomime duck outfit looks to be from the back of dusty cupboard in the BBC wardrobe department. Clearly not designed to be worn on a podium, we get to see just […]
