An excellent bit of research Armin - thanks very much for the update...
I always have to re save these documents that you do, you are a lifesaver!
With the way that rage are going, we will never see all the COuntdown's left to play. 5 Countdown episodes played this month is so SLACK!
Frankster 30. The Dragon & Ferrets clips from the Adelaide Festival have been played from time to time on Rage over the years. I have them in my collection. Dragon was played on 24/12/19 and the Ferrets were played on 6/6/17. Cheers
Ep 527 - 21.09.1986 - Gavin Wood (live Uncanny X-Men, Dragon, Hoodoo Gurus, Reels) has aired. Can't say exactly when it was aired but I have a file created date of Feb 2015.
Thanks Armin. Your updates are so interesting and useful when calculating what has been played and what is still yet to be played on rage. There are still so many episodes to air, especially from 1983, 1985 and 1986. Let's hope we have a larger number of Countdown episodes played on rage next year.
Circumstantial evidence only, but I'm going to guess it aired on Sunday 18th Jan 2015,
because that is the one night of retro month I completely missed out on since 2014, and I don't have a recording of Ep 527, so that kind of matches up.
According to my notes, 21/09/86 was missed when scheduled to air in the regular 2015 retro season, it must have been something else running overtime.
Due to a large number of people complaining about the show being missed, the Rage team relented and showed it on 04/02/2015 - about the only time they have ever done this...for some reason my notes say "ABC 3" - but Ive got no idea what that means...
Armin - one of your older postings in here which has all Rage dates that Countdowns aired does have 21/09/86 with (2015) in brackets next to it.
