The opening sequence of music show Ready to Roll is imprinted on the eyes and ears of many Kiwi music fans. The show jumped directly from the opening graphics to a quick rundown of the week's top 20 singles. Here are two of RTR's beloved openings: the late 1970s version is scored to 1974 Commmodores instrumental 'Machine Gun'. In the mid 80s, Peter Blake composed a synthesizer opening. The new colours favoured electric neon, and the graphics owed a debt to the arcade computer games that followed Space Invaders. The week's featured acts were listed next, then the countdown.
