My three 1984 requests are:
HOST: Limahl. REASON: Has an interview with Limahl and an overview of his time with Kajagoogoo and his solo career - looks interesting.
HOST: Lyn Buckfield (Electric Pandas). REASON: Jason asked for this one for the Boy George/Marilyn interview and I agree it looks like a brilliant ep. so will back him up on this one.
HOST: Molly. REASON: Has a Madonna interview, plus clips by Human League, Icehouse - looks great.
My 3 picks for '84:
1. 4/11/84 - The Marilyn + Boy George IV, 'Let's Gamble' by the Electric Pandas live, 'That's the Way' by Dead or Alive, 'The Warrior' by Scandal
2. 9/12/84 - 'Shout to the top' by Style Council, 'Sea of Love' by the Honeydrippers, 'Louise' by the Human League, 'Dancing on the Jetty' by INXS, 'Sexcrime' by the Eurythmics, and 'Dusty Pages' by Icehouse - it's been shown before but its one of my faves of theirs.
3. 19/8/84 - Takeaways doing 'Sweet and Sour', Le Club Foote 'Wanrning' and Vertical Hold 'USA' in full, 'Let's go Crazy' by Prince, 'Breakin (there's no stopping us)' Olly & Gerrie - very 1984 that

I have to say Patrick that I have had my eye on the episode with Limahl and Molly hosting over the years, I would TO be very satisfied with this even though I didn't place it on my list :-(
Just noticed that I listed July 22 and 29 which were shown 2002 and 2003 so obviously they aren't part of this exercise.
2/12/84 hosted by Molly with Models, Electric Pandas, Non Stop Dancers and Ganggajang all live in the studio, interviews/clips with Duran Duran, Sade and Alison Moyet along with other clips from Time Bandits, Julian Lennon, Hall & Oates, Radiators and Divinyls.
4/11/84 hosted by Lyn Buckfield for the same reasons as others above have listed it.
3/6/84 hosted by Eurogliders who also perform Heaven live. Rare Mi-Sex clip for 5 o'clock In The Morning
