Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

I truly hope that we get to see some more 70s eps from Countdown and some GTK would be awesome.
anyone know the playlist yet

Re: Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

Why 70s episodes keep getting asked for, I don't know.

They are all exhausted. rage have played and repeated all the 70s episodes time and time again.

And rage again played 5 episodes of 70s COuntdown's in September of 2016

Exactly.

Re: Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

It is well publicized that there are no more 70's C'downs left to play. I think some people still don't know all about the "wiped episode debacle". Although, there may still be one show from '79 left to play - or am I wrong?

Re: Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

Would love some 70's as well - so many Flashez inserts that can be shown. I'm going to nag / request Rage later this year to show at least a few inserts per week. They were doing that 2007 - 2010 but stopped.

Re: Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

I did love the Flashez segments thrown in and I think there are is one more Flashez or 2 more Flashez episodes to play

Re: Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

I would be happy if we saw any 70s music shows not just countdown ie GTK or Flashez

Re: Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

I'm for that as long as it's played at 5am! 😂

Re: Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

Yes, instead of rage wasting 2 hours every Sunday morning from 5 - 7, they could fill up more time with Retro and they can play all the s h i t t y GTK's/ Hitscenes they want in that time

rage actually haven't played any GTK this January, yet they advertised it as part of 'rage goes retro' ... I hope no GTK is shown this Saturday night, being the last Saturday of retro month

I also hope no Rock Arena either, I want 5 Countdown's in a row!

Re: Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

The Saturday morning Countdown is being repeated now on ABC ME (formerly ABC3).

Yeah we need some 70's - I intend to nag Rage until we get a Flashez marathon! Seriously though I'd like at least a few each week similar to 2007-2010

Re: Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

There are not enough Flashez episodes to have a Flashez marathon. rage have played all Flashez episodes they have minus what I think may be 2 episodes. SO a 2 episode marathon sounds at least possible

Re: Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

I meant the inserts from the full episodes (hundreds of them in the archives) Would also be nice to see the remaining full episodes.

Re: Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

It looks like the abc ABC maintaining four Countdowns per week. In week one we got five to precompensate for week two that had three. In week three they ran a Saturday morning slot.
Let's hope Triple J's Hottest 100 stays on a Friday night Like last year. In most cases Rage on Friday nights are a non event for mine.

All the Flashez inserts would be FABULOUS!

aw come on now GTK/Hitscene have some great music from the 60/70s. Nostalgic, and obscure featuring some awesome artists from that period. I even saw a clip of the Valentines with a very young Bon Scott. I have never seen that before.

Re: Retro playlist 21 Jan 2017

Sorry, but I LOATHE GTK and Hitscene. Utterly awful ....


UK's Top Of The Pops had heaven like The Sweet, Bowie etc and we had awful stuff in the early 70s in Australia.

I never record GTK and Hitscenes, I have kept the odd thing from them but it's all about Countdown for moi

And I am not a Bon Scott fan either
