We've gotten our fingers dusty and pulled out our favourite tapes from the archives to bring you a month-long celebration of retro music videos, live performances, interviews, full episodes of Countdown, GTK and more old school goodies from the vault.
It also says for this weekend for rage goes retro one - 80s
I hope weekend two is not all GTK
I hope the "Week One - Eighties" banner is not an omen. Week Two - Seventies (GTK) and Week Three - Nineties (Recovery)? What a travesty that would be. Week Four - Noughties? Even that is retro to someone.
rage sound like they are doing some decade themes which means disaster in January
I'm happy with 60's 70's & 80's but not the 90's and definitely not the 00's :fearful:
Countdown and Rock Arena only for me and if anything else, Flashez segments. Nothing past 1986
They've said (I think last year, or the one before) that Retro Month was including episodes of Rock Arena... and none aired. So, even though they've mentioned GTK, it might not actually happen.
GTK is a mixed bag. I've liked quite a few of them while others are :sleepy: . Video quality doesn't matter so much.
Nathan, l know you are a fan of the late 80s and l do like the house stuff and some of the pwl stuff but like many l prefer they stick to Countdown. Anyhow, there is no mention of Countdown Revolution or The Factory, it’s GTK it seems. I also said it sounds like they are doing a theme seeing it says 80s for the first weekend, l haven’t ever seen rage put down a specific decade before on the description before, anyhow .... guess we will have to wait and see. At least it looks like l am getting two of my 1980 Countdown requests 😊
Doesn’t mean because it is retro month that they need to stick to Countdown, there have been some January’s where we have got only a few Countdown episodes with added Madonna specials or 60s specials etc
IIRC there was one year where they split the weeks into different decades but don't think they advertised it as such.
One thing we can all agree on is hopefully no Recovery:sleeping: :slightly_smiling_face:
