Down Under Music Show Of Another Time
19 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

In the 1970s and 1980s this was the Australian music show to watch. We had bands actually performing in the Countdown studio with screaming females looking on. We had interviews with the music stars. In the 1980s these new things called music videos appeared and Countdown was on top of the situation by screening the hit videos.

Countdown came before DVDs and YouTube, in those days we could not get our hands on music videos without Countdown showing them...but some videos were edited a bit.

The show's host "Molly" was one of the few music people Michael Jackson would talk to with interviews.

In 1981 or 1982 I got my first VCR (video cassette recorder) and music videos from Countdown were some of my first recordings...I just loved the show!
