An era has come to an end with the announcement that the hugely popular music themed game show Spicks and Specks is in its final season.

This just in via the ABC website: After seven years, 277 episodes, more than 150 special guests, and thousands of questions, Australia’s favourite music quiz show Spicks and Specks will come to an end in 2011, as host Adam Hills and team captains, Myf Warhurst and Alan Brough, decide to call it a day.

“I have loved every second of my involvement with Spicks and Specks, and especially working with Alan and Myf. We always said we wanted to leave when we were on top and while we were still having fun, and now feels like the right time, says Adam Hills.

“We are indebted to our loyal fans for giving us seven amazing years on Australian television, and I hope they’ll hold the memories of Spicks and Specks close to their hearts.”

And just so you don’t forget, here’s some of the most-watched Spicks and Specks moments via Youtube.
