I put in a request for the Judie Tzuke hosted episode from 2nd March 1980
RAGE have contacted me asking for the original aired date, so fingers crossed they are looking at finding and playing it this January.
Cool. I'll mention the episode too on facebook now.
YAY, been requesting that for years ...
I remember someone here saying that Molly and Judie had a bit of a thing going on? Can't recall the full details. I think Guru Bob mentioned it?
This is also my most wanted Countdown show of all - fingers crossed they dig it out in the coming 3 weeks!!
I cant believe they found it straight away and are playing it this week.
Over the moon
The Eurogliders episode is also finally being played.
Out of curiosity, why is the 1982 Grace Knight hosted Countdown so important to many of you?
I am GLAD GLAD GLAD 1982 is being played but most of the performances on this show have been played before and the videos aren't that RARE on this episode...
It's one that I just wanted to see for a long time, mainly as a Eurogliders fan for the rare clip of Without You and their first shot at hosting, but even after they showed Without You on a Wildcard I still think it is one of the better 1982 shows that hasn't aired yet. Very happy.
I want 29/08/1982 - The FABULOUS studio performance from Jane Scali with "Having A Good Time" is heavenly as is the set AND Dynamic Hypnotics studio performance for "Hepnobeat"
I wanted the 1st show of 1982 with The Human League in Berlin and Classix Nouveaux PLUS the Carol Pope episodes the most from 1982 and they have already been played Watermark free so pheeeeeeeew!
2/3/80 Judie Tzuke episode - It says on Wikipedia that "Stay With Me Till Dawn" was a No.1 hit in Australia? Didn't it only get to about No.7?
Thanks Guru. I see in the chart there was a new version of "C'cmon Aussie C'mon" released a year later after the original? I never knew of this. Do you know if it sounds too different from the original?
Yeah, never take in 100% of what Wikipedia says. I remember when I first got onto it and looked up 'Australian Crawl', it had info about band member Simon Binks in a car accident and then next time I looked on Wiki he actually contributed to it and said 'Who wrote this'? This is not true'. Very funny. Most of the time I get onto Wikpedia to check music releases, dates and chart placings. If I know some are 100% wrong, I do correct them.
Yeah, I enjoyed "Kerry Packers War" and it was great to see them creating the lyrics to the song. Of course it only went for a few minutes, but I would have loved to have seen it turn into a 1hour doco on it!
