Hi all, I'm back! Well that was a c@#t of a read....
I was very optomistic about it returning in January this year, keeping tabs on rage posts on instagram. I knew we weren't going to get rage retro on 1st January as they have to play all the new years party ****.
I did DM them on Instagram about a month ago and didn't get a reply. I was hoping the next post after Crowded House was 'rage retro' (which I still prefer to call it Countdown) on 8 January...not to be.
Retro/Countdown in January was an institution. It was when we relived another era sat back and staying up in the wee hours of a hot January while most of us (including the record companies) were on hiatus as there were no new record releases. Oh well, I guess now everything never stops and is constant 24/7.
See you in February!!!
As you know, we speak on Instagram and though I haven't been on Instagram for over a month due to being sick of Social Media. We both prefer January being called Countdown month as that what is was for many years throughout the 90s etc.
As soon as they called it 'rage goes retro' the focus on Countdown got smaller and smaller.
I am not surprised rage didn't get back to you on Instagram, always best to email them. Though, I got no response this time around, seems they respond on Twitter at the moment.
See you all in February 2022 as well, now I have read messages that those on social media have posted here which I thank for. I now know what is going on in February. I can't wait till January is over as Countdown repeats are my reason for living in the twisted world.
Hi Jason, I was concerned that you hadn't posted on Instagram for over a month and was hoping everything was okay. I knew you have breaks from social media every now and then. I did email rage as well as DM them. I'm still waiting for a post on Instagram to say its been moved to February!
Praying for More Countdown and maybe The Factory to Compensate for Last Year’s Woeful Selections?
