That's Country - 20 March 1982

Television (Excerpts) – 1982

Hosted by one-time mod Ray Columbus, That's Country was one of the highest rating shows of the early 80s. This 1982 episode features veteran Kiwi country performers (John Hore, Patsy Riggir) and trans-Tasman pop star Dinah Lee. The opening ensemble number features Canadian singer Glory-Anne Carriere and US duo the Gypsy Mountain Pickers, along with Australian Jade Hurley (who still bills himself as the King of Country Rock). Check out the rhinestone cowboys and girls as they belt out the theme song, then settle in for solo performances. Yee-ha!

And so to a lady who’s worked very hard for a long time and truly earned the success that’s come to her in this past year. In fact her own song says it all. 'She’s Still Singing Country Music'…Patsy Riggir.
