This thread will be dedicated to upcoming guest programmers on rage and discussion about them. As soon as they are known they will be posted here. Unfortunately rage does not post upcoming guest programmers like they used to do in the extras section of their website.
Saturday 8th July - The Go-Betweens
Saturday 15th July - Meg Mac
Meg Mac is yet another indie artist. I found out that she's guest programming on the ebroadcast online TV guide. It goes ahead about 2 weeks.
Well, Cleopatra Wong's 'Thank You' is getting an airing at least... but they've stopped Saturday morning's playlist at 9am currently, for some reason.
And that they did. Anyone see anything of interest up until the end of the show?
Saturday 22nd July - Kirin J. Callinan

Saturday 5th August - Warren Fu
Saturday 12th August - Hanson
I had to look twice to make sure I was right. It should be interesting though as they might choose a more pop oriented playlist rather than a predominantly indie playlist.
Saturday 19th August - Corey Taylor
???? Wish it was Corey Hart 😂
Here's a preview of the Hanson playlist from the blurb on the rage website:
Aerosmith - Falling In Love Is Hard On Your Knees
Taylor Swift - We Are Never Getting Back Together
Foo Fighters - Learn To Fly
Ace Of Base - The Sign
Albert Hammond - Losing Touch
Natasha Bedingfield - Unwritten
Beach House - Reflector
Hmmm... what do we think?
'Learn To Fly' gets chosen all the time, and 'The Sign' has had a few airings.
No doubt Katy Perry's video 'Last Friday Night' will be shown as it has a cameo by Hanson performing at Kathy Beth Terry's street backyard party.😃
Now here's something really weird about Hanson's playlist... it looks like they only got as far as "D" in the rage red book
The picked 47 videos. 2 of them are pre-"A" (bands with numbers/symbols), 28 of them begin with "A", 9 begin with "B", and 3 begin with "D". Then they thought the better hurry up and picked 1 "E", 2 "F"s, 1 "N" and 1 "T".
That is so bizarre. rage should tell us the back-story
Haha, it's a big book.
It seems that rage are no longer providing the info on upcoming guest programmers in advance to local guides. If they do so again I will post the info on upcoming guest programmers here.
August 26th - Steve Lucas
Who is Steve Lucas?
Steve Lucas seems to be from a 70s Australian punk rock band called X. I am not familiar with him or his work either.
Saturday 2nd September - Gang Of Youths
Saturday 9th September - Spoon
Saturday 16th September - The Preatures
It'd be nice if they had someone I actually knew.
Saturday 23rd September - Mogwai
Saturday 30th September - Died Pretty
Finally an artist i have actually heard a song from prior to their stint on the (in) Famous Red Couch!
Saturday 7th October - The Jungle Giants
Saturday 14th October - Future Islands
