This is the last time for a while we’ll be seeing Janice Long before she heads off on maternity leave, but although she doesn’t actually return to Radio 1 – resigning after finding out she was going to be demoted to a worse slot on her return – she does come back to Pops for a bit, fronting probably the most memorable edition of 1988. Last time we saw Macca in the studio it was a subliminal cameo having turned up to record a performance for a flop single they didn’t show, but as part of 1987’s parade of veterans we do actually see him perform tonight. And yes, Michael Jackson is billed in the Breakers.
