Catching the tail end of one of those programs on BBC4 on early British rock'n roll (not yet 'rock') and the end with these granddads playing some rock shuffle thing with words that go 'never too old to rock'. Finding it very poignant, evoking slightly gloomy thoughts about the transient nature of the human experience. You can already see the same sort of nostalgia treatment on punk and on '80s pop. Haven't seen one on goth but it won't be long coming. It is a bit difficult to imagine that sort of nostalgic programme dedicated to power noise and, I don't know, Converter, Winterkälte and This 'Morn Omina but then again it would have been impossible back in the day to believe that Never Mind the Bollocks would one day be Radio 2 and nostalgia BBC4 material. And that has long since been the case.
