The 1985 Countdown episode looks fine and it is unrepeated so GREAT * Pleased about that ... BUT ... Not pleased that the Meatloaf videos have to be on the first 'rage goes retro'! Are rage purposely trying to cut back on Countdown and Rock Arena episodes?!
Why isn't the Meat Loaf videos on the Friday night??? It is disappointment after disappointment again and again the more the years go by.
I did read rage say that there will be more Countdown episodes after Meatloaf, so at least that is a good sign.
Meatloaf died last week, why haven't rage done their tribute by now?
Meat Loaf had many great classics and some of his music videos were amazing especially I'd Do Anything For Love. I'm looking forward to next Saturday.
It makes sense Recovery getting included with Dylan being on the jungle program.
The point is, rage always have played tributes on Friday nights. I never said rage shouldn't play Meat Loaf's videos as a tribute but not as part as 'rage goes retro' as it eats time into Countdown and Rock Arena which we wait 11 months a year for!
EVERY episode of Recovery needs to be urinated on and then set on fire!
I happen to really miss Recovery and am enjoying seeing it's main host Dylan on the jungle show. He deserves to get crowned King. The 90s was my favourite decade for music.
Hey J, it’s Shantel here. Just popping in for my yearly Countdown info.
Hope you are well xx
Rage played Meatloafs videos when Jim Steinman passed a while back. There weren't many. It wouldn't be uncommon for rage to play some clips from a Countdown host anyway. Two birds one stone.
And what's cool is that I have most of the unplayed episodes on first-gen time code and this is one that I don't have. Looking forward to this, not that the Loaf was releasing anything worthy at that stage, but because 1985 was a cracker year!!
