The B.P.I. Awards

Tom Hibbert, Smash Hits, 26 February 1986

People like Wham!, Tears For Fears, Phil Collins, Howard Jones, Go West, Alison Moyet, Tom Hibbert... Tom who? Oh, actually he's the one from Smash Hits in the Mr Byrite suit (£19.99), leather bowtie and Um Bongo-stained notebook chatting to Dracula. What?!
