I am sure Jason will put up the complete run downs of these shows.
Highlights - Sherbet Special as one of only 3 unplayed 70's episodes remaining.
1982 and 1983 awards shows that the Guru had suggested for the Christie Allen tribute to continue on after the 1980 Awards show.
6 Countdowns on one night - have not seen that happen since 1997-98.
Lowlight - Repeating the Aug 22 1982 episode (and on a personal note that I already had 4 of the 6 episodes on time-coded versions so all I get is some cleaned up shows)
Guru, I don't get the last show???
Are they Awards???????? Such a bloody pointless shoiw, when they could have played either the 1985 Tears for Fears or Spandau Ballet shows!!!! ARGH!!!
And the 1982 Episode is a repeat whicrage played in 1995 with Inxs performing!
Oh, and yes... I have 2 of the timecoded eps' from you... so um... 1982 Awards is a good one for me... Sherber, VOMMIT, how I loath them...
I am still excited to get Angel Face and Venetians with Cinese I's without a timer code and in digital....
There ya go, a rather good night. But I think this January has benn THE most un imaginitive rage January EVER... First weekend started off great, and since it's rather bleek!
Even though there is a 1982 repeat and I have 2 of the timercodes. Least there not 70s Countdown's. I rather loath the 70's except for 1979 and 1975 Glam. But OZ 70's = crap in my opinion. So phew, I do have to put up with Sherbet though, THE worst of them for me... But I am VERY happy for the 70's fans for that one. Bless em, HA HA HA !!! I can't be too greedy, I suppose. What can Is ay, I am a COMLETE 80's COUNTDOWN JUNKIE! CJ...
Have none of these so I'm a very happy camper. Particularly happy to have another 1975 episode! Not a big fan of the awards shows but you can't have it all..
At last SHERBET special..love em love em ...Alan Sandow what a hunk o spunk he was...yummy. Great choice of eps this week...
Ha Ha, how cute * Enjoy the Sherbet Episode. Least they are finally playing it, I have seen the 70s fans request this for years and years and MORE years on the rage Guestbook.
I am sure that the first hour will be heaven for you and the Sherbet fans.
Seeing Duran Duran present an award on the 1982 Awards is what I will be waiting for, YAY OH YAY!!!
yeh Daryl played a concert at the local casino on Sunday. Couldnt get a blasted ticket, left it too late bummer. Was gonna take along a Sherbet tape for him to sign lol
Hal all, I gotta say I'm pretty excited to see them air six countdowns. I think I may already have the 1982 one on video tape somewhere, but getting a digital copy will be excellent. I'm just a little lost on those mentioning time-codes on earlier episodes. I'm noticing they are still time coding them now, about two to three times during an episode. Just wondering what time-code they are refering to?
