Why dont they show some eps dedicated to some great perfomers like Steve Gilpin; Marc Hunter; Brad Robinson and the other member of Aussie crawl; Shirley Strachan; Paul Hester all who have sadly passed..

Guy McDonough was the "other member" of Australian Crawl that sadly passed away and there's been 3 episodes shown this month featurin' Aussie Crawl performances-
That Xmas song in the '82 Xmas episode
"Beautiful People"(the only "Countdown" performance of the song I can think of where James Reyne's arms AREN'T in plaster!)in the 1st "Countdown/TV Week" Awards show from April 13 1980
"Indisposed"-in the August 31 1980 episode
Since I've not checked for this weekend's line-up(don't want to-I wanna be surprised,though that might be hard since there's forums here mentionin' what's on!),fingers crossed there'll be more Aussie Crawl 'cause they were a great band and I'm glad to celebratin' 30 years of bein' an Aussie Crawl fan this year-cheers!
Yep, there was an excellent 'Rock Arena' that featured The Go-Betweens performing live (especially for the program if I am not mistaken)...one of my personal faves!
ps I was posting under the name of 'John' before (from the ABC Archives) but I have changed the handle/name to'otherjohn' as there is a john already posting on the site & this thread (sorry about that, I'm a newbie on this forum & hopefuly the name change will avoid any confusion etc)
