COUNTDOWN IS BACK THIS JANUARY, 2019 ... ON rage !!!!! Stay tuned below with regular Countdown full archival information for each Countdown episode rage shall be airing every Saturday throughout January ...
I see that Rage ARE going to have a Mardi Gras special on 5 March! Fantastic and looks like it will be an ALL night special was well - great!
Not sure if they've got someone lined up to host it or not (would be brilliant if its Ignatius Jones as I suggested), but now would be a perfect time to get in those classic and rare clips everyone wants to suggest.
Although I'm still mourning the end of Retro for the year (and I will for the next 11 months!), I'm looking forward to this special.
Yay . I just requested a bunch of clips in the existing thread on the Rage forum, started by Patrick. Rage probably don't have half/most of them, but it can't hurt to ask.
I thought the 2009 and 2010 mini-specials were really quite good, tending to focus on clips that Rage have never aired, or haven't aired for a very long time, rather than the cliched 'It's Raining Men', 'You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)' etc. clips (nothing wrong with those, just they've been played on several previous Mardi Gras specials).
I'm sure Ignatius Jones would make an interesting host, but I'm actually hoping for a night of semi-obscure/forgotten wall-to-wall dance/pop trash
Jason, I've got 2 different TOTP performances of Hazell Dean's 'Searchin', and 1 of 'Whatever I Do...'. I'd love to see the "video" (which was really just a Dutch (?) TV performance for 'Whatever I Do' on Rage though, but am not holding my breath. I've also got 'They Say It's Gonna Rain'. But digital copies (even with a watermark) would be nice.
I've got Boytronic's 'You', too, but it's in NTSC. Have Tiffany's 'Radio Romance' in PAL.
