  1. Hello

    just want to drop by to congratulate you on your dedication to this.

    And ask a question....

    I am sure I remember a photo story of Spandau Ballet and Bananarama 'on the road' in Smash Hits. But maybe it was in Flexipop! or one of the other short lived glossy pop mags. Can you put me out of my misery and confirm on e way or the other?

    Thanks!
