I saw an attached photo of a newspaper article and it's turns out to be that Countdown is going to be revived by the ABC and will screen next year following the success of Countdown Classics.
I wonder if there will be more Australian music on the commercial radio by bringing the recent Australian music acts to perform on the show just like the good old days when the show was on before.
I'd rather see complete repeats!
I have no interest in a revived Countdown with current acts.
Fair enough to people who do like "new" music, but at best it sounds like it would be more like Recovery than Countdown.
For me though they seem to be missing the point of the interest in Countdown - it's the nostalgia of a bygone era, rather than the actual format revived using current acts.
But... yeah, I don't begrudge it for people who like new music, it's just not for me.
