1983 Grammy winner and Blues Hall of Famer, the King of Zydeco, from Opelousas, Louisiana, here's the late great Clifton Chenier doing "Tu Peux Cogner (Mais Tu Peux Pas Rentrer)" (Keep-A-Knockin' But You Can't Come In) on Dutch television. I don't have an exact date, but somewhere around 1980, since the song is from his 1979 album Frenchin' the Boogie.

The name of the show was TopPop, a weekly pop music show on Dutch television from 1970 to 1988, modelled after the British show Top of the Pops. It was typical for artists to "mime their latest hit in the TopPop Studio."
