Molly Meldrum's warm, vivid, often hilarious and always compelling account of life in and out of Countdown.

More than thirty-five years in the making, this is the story of Ian 'Molly' Meldrum and the television show that stopped the nation.

In 1974 Ian 'Molly' Meldrum was working as a record producer and music journalist when he was offered the chance to host a new music show called Countdown. It was a show that would run for the next thirteen years and become one of the most-loved and most-watched programs on Australian television. It also turned Molly into a national institution (or 'mental institution' as one of his friends put it).

During that period he not only became the most influential voice in Australian music, he endeared himself to millions of viewers with a uniquely unpolished interviewing style and a tangible on-screen passion. For better or worse, whether interviewing Prince Charles or Sid Vicious, Molly was always Molly.

Along the way he talked, partied, argued, exchanged blows and became firm friends with a rollcall of the world's greatest musical names.

Filled with outrageous anecdotes, an incredible cast of musos, deadbeats, transvestites and international superstars, The Never, Um, Ever Ending Story is Molly's hilarious, vivid, warm and always compelling memoir of these incredible years.

The Never Ending Story Is A Blast From The Past

Molly describes his escapades in such a way that I wanted to know more. The only criticism I have is that the book ended! I hope he does another one.

This is a book easy to read and savoured over a period of time. The print is clear and colour photos appropriate. I am trying not to finish it too soon and am eking it out by reading only a chapter at a time.
