Tom Jones was banned by the BBC for being too sexy in 1964
It’s was banned by the BBC but taken up by Pirate radio in 1964. He was sex on legs and became star with a song that another start turned down to see him perform. Dusty Springfield knew when she heard It’s not Usual that the big man from Wales had something special. A smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic which went on to sell tens of millions of copies and still sells today.
