Thought this might be a handy reference for when the official database is down (which is most of the time!).

Decided to start with the '80s, and one of the best ever TOTP years : 1980.

Includes some info not listed in Pete's book!

Maybe someone can fill in the missing songs??

Thanks to Leechy for the screen grabs :)
