...due to some 'ABC systems being down this time of year' (see below).
Well I know it's only a couple of weeks away, but I received this response from rage on the Facebook page, when making a suggestion for the Xmas-themed Vault section this coming weekend:
Hi Nathan, neither Band Aid nor Band Aid II are in the Rage library however they are in the ABC archives. Unfortunately due to some ABC systems being down at this time of year we won't be able to get them to air in time, but we will make sure it happens next year! (Feel free to remind us)

I didn't suggest the Hall & Oates track, but that comment was a reply to my post.
Good to know Band Aid & Band Aid II are in the archives though.
Looks like 'The Factory' episode (featuring Wendy James and Bros in the studio) that I requested a couple of times in the past week def. won't be happening in January.
I thought rage have played Band Aid over the years? Seems silly that they post the Band Aid group photo on facebook and won't be playing it this weekend. I just hope they get our request and play 'Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree' - Mel Smith & Kim Wilde!
rage don't have the original 1984 Band Aid - Do They Know It's Christmas, W T F ????????
One of the first tracks I purchased on iTunes was Band Aid II. Band Aid 3 was good, but this latest one is really bad. Please stop!
