Midnite Special

| home | TV shows |

Olivia co-hosts this with Wolfmann Jack to promote her Xanadu movie. Olivia opens the show with Magic dressed in a nifty white shorts combination. Her costumes for this are spectacular without being garish - pure class. This also features a rare performance with The Tubes of Dancin'. This was specially filmed and this version isn't in the movie Xanadu. Olivia plays all the three singers in the girl band which must have taken some choreography.
Cliff Richard is there to lend support for Suddenly and also to try and break America promoting his Wired For Sound album. There's lovely renditions of Suspended In Time (Olivia sheds a tear or two) and a grown-up Don't Cry For Me Argentina. All the songs are mimed. During the show Olivia is delighted to learn that Magic has reached the number one slot!
