Oh boy, I actually remember the shortlived West End musical , Blondel, which I enjoyed a lot.

In the context, one assumes Blondel is used as the archetypal mediaeval popstar.

Just to resurrect this thread since I found it by accident. I am Gen X and an advanced compact cassette user. I could splice a tape with the best of them. No boring C90 tapes for me an 82 minute version was the bees knees. And mine was the last year at school that couldn't use a calculator at O-level.
