    Thank you, Doris!
    I hadn't seen that performance by Robert Wagenhoffer.
    It dates from not too long before his untimely passing.

    sbanet, that performance of Pagliacci you posted was certainly one the first of that iconic program.
    Toller was a specially invited guest at the EX.

    One lost performance I've been searching for is Gary Beacom, skating entirely to recorded birdsongs. I've heard of this performance, but never seen it.

    Also, although I have seen Gary's performance with Gia Guddat with skate on their hands before, it isn't on youtube now, and I'd love to see it again!.

    A competition piece, but even with the slightly botched lift, it's pretty enough (and voidy enough) to be included here...

    This one is fun from Shawn Sawyer. Love what he does with the briefcase.

    Thank you! That is one wild & crazy routine, for sure.

    Btw, the Duchesnay's TV special based on The Planets by Holst, which included skating, ballet and swimming probably qualifies as voidy

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YT4FBMm2W0Y

    and Torvill & Dean's Six Gestures (Bach Cello Suites) with Yo Yo Ma

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EF4Ft9x3whE

    and Rahkamo & Kokko skating in the official video of Enigma's Beyond the Invisible

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-w3WVWc5o0

    is a favorite of mine, and beyond voidy.

    Wow thanks, never seen this one before. Although I was :lol: at Simon Reed claiming he'd never seen Shawn before, even though he commentated on him at the 2006 Olympics. :rolleyes:

    Thanks Prancer. I'm astounded that Kurt and Dick actually read message boards.

    I hadn't seen that routine of Shawn Sawyer's before! Thank you!

    Here's some other retro routines that I found memorable:



    Debi Thomas & Vladimir Kotin 1986 Goodwill Games Billy Jean EX
    At the time, this routine seemed the very spirit of Goodwill.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ainW6rWLwaA

    Igor Bobrin 1981 Worlds EX A Cowboy's Work is Never Done
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4Qg31eD3Rc

    Tonya Harding 1987 NHK When You Wish Upon a Star EX
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pU9K1W6w-Vw

    Klimova & Ponomarenko 1987 EX Worlds Warming Up for the Ballet
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9nn6J7GyR0

    Too bad Engi & Toth's Muppet Movie EX is not on youtube. They did it in full Kermie & Miss Piggy outfits!

    There is another Gary/Gia routine to "I Think I'm losin' my marbles" by Mendelsohn Joe which predates this. If I recall correctly, they were in black and white outfits and had skates onhands and feet. I think they did it at a Sun Valley show as well as other places. I used to have it on tape but can no longer play it so sorry, I can'y post it!

    Mine, as well.
    Rahkamo and Kokko trained with Torvill and Dean in the early years of their career.
    They had first-hand knowledge, gained from the master!

    LOVE it!! As a Shawn uber, I was pleasantly surprised to find a program I hadn't seen!! Well, I've seen the SOI version but that seems to be a little different.
