ROCK ARENA EPISODE REQUESTS

I of course am more focused on Countdown Episode requests and my list is all done and ready to be emailed to rage by October for the Countdown Episodes.

But as rage also play Rock Arena I may request these episodes, no date on the first one but I will try my luck as it's a KILLER episode!

Re: ROCK ARENA EPISODE REQUESTS

I usually only request 3-4 episodes of CD or RA and have had quite good success that way. If you send rage a list of 10 to 20 episodes they'll either ignore it as it is too overwhelming or just pick one of the first two on your list. I think they only show 5-6 Rock Arenas per retro month anyway.

Re: ROCK ARENA EPISODE REQUESTS

I usually send them about 10 Countdown's and on some years I get about 5 or 6 episodes played so whatever they chose from my list I am grateful to get a couple of them with Countdown and Rock Arena.

This year I got 1 or 2 Countdown's played from my list and that was all and my list was smaller than usual. So when I send bigger lists I usually get more

Re: ROCK ARENA EPISODE REQUESTS

^ Yes, with rage I think it's pretty much luck of the draw.

But I think they do keep lists of requests... for years. I know there were quite a few videos I'd suggested years earlier that got aired on the 2016 Vault special.

Re: ROCK ARENA EPISODE REQUESTS

I've sent in my requests for 4 Rock Arenas... none of the ones listed above.

We'll see how many get up.

One of them is not listed in TARA so don't know exactly when it aired but was around Sep-Oct 1988 and had a few Do Re Mi clips in it. Who knows how faulty my memory is and whether they could find it.
