Carrie and David's Popshop

Carrie and David's Popshop

Carrie and David's Popshop is a childrens television series currently aired on Cbeebies with 30 episodes which were first shown from 18 February 2008 until 28 March 2008. It is presented by celebrity vocal coaches Carrie and David Grant and produced by BBC Scotland.


Carrie and David start off the show by acting out a music-related situation that usually ends in them giving the viewer (behind the camera) an object. Then a warm-up song is sung. A child or children would then come into the popshop and ask for a song for a certain purpose (eg. to skip going to bed or to get their dad to dance) then Carrie and David would have an idea ("We're getting the feeling!") and sing a song asking what genre of music they want their song to be sung in. The customer would then leave awaiting their pod (see below). Then Carrie and David's dog Riff would 'prepare the zone' and sing a song about setting the equipment up. Carrie and David would expand their idea, come up with lyrics and decide what instruments to use, during which the object that the viewer was given earlier usually comes into use. Carrie and David then perform the song they have come up with and Riff records it on a pod. Riff hands the pod to the viewer who gives the pod to the original customer. When they open the pod stars come out and the video of their song comes out. They dance and sing along.


All songs are written by Carrie and David. In a typical programme, the following songs will feature:

* Theme song
* Warm-up song
* Is it this or is it that?
* Riff's song
* The customer's chosen song
