The BBC was right to axe flagship music programme 'Top of the Pops', say former hosts of the show and music commentators.
DJ Dave Lee Travis, who hosted the show between 1972 and 1984, said the world is "too fast moving" for the programme.
His views were shared by DJs Jimmy Savile and Paul Gambaccini, who said the show's demise was "inevitable".
In a statement, the BBC blamed the "rapidly changing musical landscape" for the end of the programme, which began in 1964.
The programme has come under increasing pressure as fans turn to the internet and 24-hour music channels to satisfy their musical appetite.
The final edition of 'Top of the Pops' will be aired on the 30th of July.
