rockballads.jpgMonday - Rocking out in the 80's and 90's!

Thanks to Rebecca who suggest we play an 80's and 90's Rock Ballads 20 20 Retro Countdown! Great job - we just wish we had've thought of it! It's all about big hair, guitar solos and love songs like we'd never heard before! So join us for a countdown that features the likes of Whitesnake, Def Leppard, Gunners and Meatloaf!

 

gorillas.jpg Tuesday - We drag the hits of '88 out of the mist!

Yes, this countdown takes us back to mid September 1988 - when Sigourney Weaver starred as Dian Fossey in the movie that became one of the big hits of the year and went on recceive 5 academy award nominations. If you weren't watching "Gorillas In The Mist" - you were probably checking out the grand final action! In the VFL - the star studded Hawks thrashed the Demons. In the NSWRL.. Caterbury just got over Balmain 24-12!

 

differntstrokes.jpg Thursday - whatchoo talkin' Bout? - 1979!

Join us for the top 20 from this week in 1979.. when the hit TV comedy "Dfferent Strokes" premiered! Driven largely by the cute one liners of star Gary Coleman, it quickly became a favourite that still pops up every now and then. Meanwhile, in grand final action - Collingwood and Carlton palyed out one of the most memborable VFL Grand Finals off all time.. And in the league the Dragons got over the Bulldogs. More on those events and the hits of this week in 1979!

 

 commgames.jpg Friday - Takes Us To Comm Games!

It was during this week in 1982 that we were introduced to Matilda as she marched around the stadium to launch Brisbane's Commonwealth Games. We'll remember that amongst the top 20 from mid September. It was also the week that Pink Floyd's "The Wall" movie  premiered.. and Parramatta and Carlton were the top 2 teams in the nation after taking out their respective grand finals!

 

 thriller.jpg Friday - We celerate some of the greatest albums!

Remember when we brought home a new album - put it on - and heard that first track. It set up the whole listening experience. So on the 20 20 Retro Countdown, we're playing those first songs you heard when you put on some of the greatest albums of all time - it's the Opening Tracks!
