This week’s post will be shorter than normal, because when I researched these events previously, I concluded that there did not appear to have been a 1977 ceremony, but that no longer seems to have been entirely true.
It certainly seems to be true that there was no British Rock & Pop Awards held in 1978 (and anyway, due to the confusing dating of the ceremony, the 1978 event was held in 1979). However, there does appear to have been a second outing for the Daily Mirror Pop Club Reader Awards, or at the very least, one award was presented. Nothing was televised for 1977, but whatever happened happened on 31st May 1978.
Winners included The Stranglers, but no other information seems to be available at the time of writing.
