COUNTDOWN IS BACK THIS JANUARY, 2019 ... ON rage !!!!! Stay tuned below with regular Countdown full archival information for each Countdown episode rage shall be airing every Saturday throughout January ...
The original master tape was in two parts which is unusual for Countdown - the only other time this situation has been seen on Rage was that full episode of The Factory they screened on Retro a year or two back - although that is a far longer show than Countdown of course.
When the video master is spread over 2 tapes, this is how they seem to join them - although you think they would just digitally re-master the whole thing on one tape and have a neater join.
I'm yet to watch this episode (I went to bed at around 3:15 just after Bananarama's 'More Than Physical'), but no doubt this episode really was split over two storage tapes, like the episode of 'The Factory' from last year.
I haven't watched this episode yet. I plan to watch it tonight in all it's glory while having dinner. . I thought what happened would have been the case with the rage bit inbetween both parts.
BTW - Re Elton John episode 1986 - I was a bit disappointed that Elton & Molly weren't part of the studio audience and their bits were pre-recorded. Had a good laugh when Elton was introducing everything new about himself and then said 'same old program'.
Re this months Countdown Magazine with the poster of Wa Wa Nee. Who is the woman? I didn't know there was a female member in the band!
Michael, yes. Wa Wa Nee had a female keyboardist. haven't you seen her on the Countdown performances of Stimulation and I Could make You Love Me? She is also in the video of I Could Make You Love Me...
Well there you go! Maybe I didn't pay enough attention to the Countdown performances and I have never seen the full video of 'I Could Make You Love Me'. I know it's on YouTube, but I'll wait til it comes on our TV screens.
