London Weekend Show '79

Note that I independently write and research everything in this article. But it may contain affiliate links.

Cheers to Spectre off the forums for finding this interesting TV show from 1979 – the London Weekend Show.

Presumably a 'yoof' show from the era, this particular episode focuses on the run-up to the launch of the Quadrophenia movie and the mod scene developing at the time. Certainly some interesting footage and chat from both from 1979 and from the 1960s. You'll also witness the world's greatest combover too.

It's a lengthy thing, so the first part only is below. You'll find part two here and part three here.

Love Modculture? If you enjoy what you read or have benefitted from it and want to help with the ever-increasing costs of the site and newsletter, you can always buy me a coffee at Ko-Fi. Every penny is helpful and appreciated.
