down the dumper

A fantastic article about the soon-to-be late Smash Hits. Alas, after hearing yesterday that it was to close, I was going to pitch an article on the exact same subject to my editor. I was even going to say that the spirit of ver Hits lives on in Popworld, as the author of that article pointed out! And now it would look as if I were copying it. Bah. Still, it's a fitting tribute to possibly the funniest magazine of all time.

I heard about that on the radio this morning and thought of you, and I wondered if you would write something about it. So I think you should write something anyway for us :-)

Awww, that brings it all back! I always wanted to win a tea towel on the letters page...

My bedroom door in my parents' house is covered, top to bottom, in stickers from Smash Hits dating from the mid-90s, including one particularly embarrassing one of Sean Maguire with an arrow pointing to him saying 'My Future Husband'. Dad says it'll take a blow torch to get them off.
I was really sad to hear about the demise of the magazine. It was a big part of my teenage years. That article sums it up so well, and I'm sure yours would have too!
