Kajagoogoo New Video Footage – Volume 1
Today, we feature two short clips from the archives.
Firstly, we have Nick Beggs’ appearance on kids TV show ‘Hold Tight’, recorded at Alton Towers back in the summer of 1983. Hosted by Bob Carolgees and Pauline Black from ska band Selecter amongst others, the show saw two teams of children compete against each other on a giant ‘snakes and ladders’ board in order to win fab prizes…..namely free rides on the attractions. The show also saw performances by and interviews with just about every major pop star of the day.
Hold Tight! ran on ITV from 1982 but had vanished from the airwaves by ’87.

Our second clip features Limahl talking pop on an unknown UK panel show. Subjects such as Culture Club, TV show ‘The Tube’ and the squeaky clean, drugs free 80’s scene (ahem!) are tackled here. See what you think….
That’s all for now – see you again in a few days with some longer clips and also more short ‘snippets’ from the archives….
