Retro Month heads to February for a Third Year in a Row, What happened to January?

Seen a couple of GTK and a Hit Scene tonight (surely the best opening credits around!), Is January back to being retro month?

Has anyone else been Watching Rage this month ? I always enjoy seeing old Countdown episodes,reminds me of being young again. I’m so thankful there was such great music back then ,70s to about late 80s


I like the 80s episodes of Countdown, I prefer the 70s episodes though.I’m still p***ed that so many 70s episodes were lost when the ABC wiped them in a cost cutting drive,to reuse all those videotapes :-1:

Sadly it wasn’t just ABC, all networks did it. Videotape apparently wasn’t cheap and none of the networks had the storage capacity for infinite archiving or had the foresight to envisage the future market potential. So many shows lost forever.


Yes it’s a shame
