Missed Sat. night. What night will it be repeated again?
Now this is interesting:
Saturday morning Vault segment:
JULIE ANDREWS A Spoonful Of Sugar (From Mary Poppins) (Disney)
FLEETWOOD MAC The Chain ()
Wow, the playlists for the weekend are up already! There are a few videos on Saturday night that haven't aired in a long time:
STAN RIDGWAY The Big Heat (Independent) (last aired during the 2009 Wild Card special)
MINNIE RIPERTON Lovin' You () (hasn't aired on rage before to my knowledge)
DIVINYLS I'm Jealous () (hasn't aired since 1995)
FLYING PICKETS Only You () (hasn't aired before)
Very excited that MINNIE RIPERTON Lovin' You is being played!!!!
SO RARRRRRE! Never seen it on rage!
That performance of STEVE HARLEY AND THE COCKNEY REBELS Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me) was just WOW!!!!!
rage usually play a different video, my word ... Steve Harley is so darn beautifuuuuuuul x
Noticed that they played the original clip for Divine - You Think Your A Man. In the past I thought they had played the Countdown performance (including the credits).
THE BREAKFAST CLUB Right On Track () (has only aired in the digital era during the watermark in the 4:3 area of the screen years)
I think the theme for Saturday morning's Vault segment is 1987, but it includes several tracks released in 1986. Typical rage
Short too at only 11 eighties songs for the whole weekend, but I guess we should be grateful they've spared that much, and that it isn't too alternative. I don't know how Husker-Du fits into the theme, being a non-charter and something I've never heard.
If their write-up reflects what will be written on the superscript though, it should be Debbie (not Deborah) Harry for that song, and 'French Kissin' In The USA' (rather than "kissing"). Which is odd as they got "hangin'" right for Kim Wilde.
Good that they are playing both, though there are undoubtedly rarer videos from both they could be playing.
Nice to see 'Right On Track' (hopefully not by The Breakfast CLU), 'Luka', 'U Got The Look' and 'To Be A lover', though not exactly hard to find elsewhere.
10,000 MANIACS These Are Days
EAGLES The Long Run (though it aired during Glenn Frey's tribute last year)
plus a bunch of Hanson videos that probably haven't aired since they were in the top 50
I was watching a 10,000 Maniacs video earlier (though not the one above) and thought for some reason "it wouldn't surprise me if Hanson chose them" and they did!

XTC Life Begins At The Hop (hasn't aired as a standalone clip on rage since playlists have been online)
OK, here's what rage broadcast last night:
And here's that image overlaid on top of the proper 4:3 clip:
So not only is the clip zoomed in, they screwed up the aspect ratio as well!
I feel a letter to rage coming on...
That's a really bad crop. They didn't have to zoom in that far. It's better for rage to show the actual original aspect ratio as you don't miss out on what the director intended to show and for the quality of the video. One of the downsides of 4:3 aspect ratio though is that from my experience in the retail selling of televisions is that funnily enough, a lot of people think that 4:3 aspect ratio on a 16:9 screen is a fault because they don't realise televisions used to have a different shape before digital TV. That shouldn't be reason enough to crop 4:3 footage to widescreen because there is a lack of knowledge by many consumers.
Wow, that's really bad. I haven't yet watched my recording from last night to see for myself.
I wish rage/the ABC would not zoom in on these old videos at all; it just looks so bad. Who could seriously think it was an improvement?
There have been a couple of old letterboxed videos re-aired in recent times that they haven't enlarged to 16:9, such as Robert Plant's 'Big Log', which I am grateful for.
I think this was just a pure c*ck up and nothing more - I don't think it was deliberate. Since this clip has not been played at all in the past nearly 20 years, they must have sourced the analog clip from the library and then promptly screwed up the digitisation. Zooming plus wrong aspect ratio - maybe the work experience kiddie was on deck?
I emailed these images to Tyson Koh at rage... let's see if they do anything about this. I asked them to fix the clip up and show it again some time soon.
Not sure how often they play Soul Kiss, 50 Years or Trouble Spot Rock but they're on this week amongst others on Sat morning, Sunday morning and presumably during the week replay. All Australian and predominantly 1985 apart from Air Supply and Mondo Rock.
