Sad to hear of the passing of darts legend Jockie Wilson at the early age of 62.
But what does this have to do with music, you may ask? Those familiar with the British pop show Top of the Pops know the answer.
In 1982 Dexy’s Midnight Runners were in the charts with their big hit ‘Jackie Wilson Says’. Darts was huge on TV at the time, and Jocky Wilson a household name. And who was Jackie Wilson? Not known at the BBC. The stage was set, literally, for some accidental comedy. Look out for the big black and white picture of an angelic, smiling, darts genius.
