July 6, 1967: Pink Floyd made their first appearance on the BBC TV music show Top Of The Pops to promote their new single "See Emily Play."
A badly damaged home video recording recovered by the British Film Institute of Pink Floyd's debu on Top Of The Pops was given a public screening in London on January 9, 2010, at an event called "Missing Believed Wiped," devoted to recovered TV shows. It was the first time any footage was seen of the performance since its original broadcast.

July 6, 1972: David Bowie performed "Starman" on Top Of The Pops. The three-minute act launched him to stardom.

July 6, 1985: Tina Turner entered almost halfway up Billboard's Hot 100, at Number 52, with "We Don't Need Another Hero." It's the theme song to the film Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.
