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 ...
Very interesting whilst watching and recording the Countdown episode played on rage just 4 and a half or so hours ago from the 28/11/1982 with Tim Finn hosting. Molly saying that next weeks hosts would be Bananarama * Being a HUGE and MASSIVE Bananarama fan I know that they didn't come down to Australian till June/July 1984 when they were here to promote their 2nd album and did Countdown.
I remember on another 1982 Countdown episode Gavin saying Bananarama would be hosting Countdown in a few weeks, the show below from the 15th December, 1982 is the episode which was aired the week after the 28th December, 1982 which was aired just a few hours ago on rage and it comes from Molly's house. I find it interesting that Bananarama were scheduled to host Countdown in the ABC studios and then not only do they not end up hosting, they don't end up coming to Australia at all and then the show is filmed at Molly's house? .... I wonder what happened, very interesting.
I am sure rage haven't aired this Countdown episode from the 5th December, 1982. Armin, do you have this episode as I don't.
