Why does Rock Arena only go for 39 minutes?
I didn't notice that Michael, who knows!!!!! Anything is possible when it comes to rage goes retro...
I know, it's a bit weird, thought I'd made a typo but yep, definitely 39 minutes long.
Maybe a short episode due to some other show that followed it at that time. Maybe the hockey?
I certainly don't remember "Home" and i wathced ABC religiously back then?
I also wouldn't mind seeing "The Comedy Video Store", I wonder if the adult music clips were Aussies or from other countries as well?
Remember seeing a clip by The Tubes on this show
I remember Home well. Always watched it before Dr.Who....'Home, Home on the other side....' well that's some of the lyrics I knew from the show.
Interesting that it's called 'Glenn Shorrock's Rock Arena'. Guru, when did it go back to an hour. Was the Comedy Video Store short lived?
I think Comedy Video Store ran longer than 4 weeks. I remember recording this show a few times bit i didn't have access to a VCR until 1985. It also used Dare Me by The Pointer Sisters as the theme song which didn't come out until 1985. I think it may have changed its name when Vince Sorrenti took over as host but i can't remember what
I think I'm So Excited was used and not Dare Me
