Michael
Why don't they put Monday night playlists up on the website? I know they post on facebook, but if they put all the other nights playlists up on the website, why not Monday's?



I get the impression rage have been on 'skeletal staff' since around the time the election was announced, and still appear to be. They never comment on Facebook posts anymore, for example.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Guru Bob
Are they replacing this segment with women's soccer repeats now or am I reading the TV guide wrong?


I really hope not.

Who wants to watch (women's or men's) soccer at that hour?

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Looking at next weeks' programming they are only showing the women's soccer on the Tues/Wed night - which is a repeat of their regular Sunday afternoon program.

It looks like they will only replay the Saturday afternoon soccer on the Mon/Tues night and next week there is no game broadcast in that slot so it should be back to normal vault segment.

Checking the soccer broadcast fixture it appears that the Saturday game shown last week was a one off to launch the season (although it was actually round 2 apparently). The W League season runs for 14 weeks plus 3 weeks of finals but in round 10 (Jan 1&2) there will be no broadcast game.

So it looks like we will be back to normal after tonight.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

I started reading the playlist from the bottom up when I first saw it, and wasn't too thrilled, but yes there is some rare stuff shown earlier on.

I wish they'd shown 'Left of Center' instead of 'Luka', though, as I don't have a watermark-free digital copy of that.

Hi Jason,

If you are interested I have Voyeur from a Laser Disc. It is a great video and nice and clean if you are interested?

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Thank You Nathan for uploading the rage Playlist every Monday night. I have left Facebook as I loathe Social media and don't plan to return till November when I submit Countdown requests.

Would appreciate it if you continue pasting the Playlists for Monday nights

Sure, I plan to continue.

Next week's Tuesday morning episode is only about an hour long. No doubt they'll pick a really good theme, then

It's starting later than normal because of that W league (whatever that is) that has been airing normally on Wednesday mornings. Typical Australia - sport trumps everything else

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Interesting, only 1 hour long. Perfect to play the Countdown episode from 11/04/1982 in that hour. But according to them, they don't have time in their upcoming programming. Fools

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Has anybody who were the fans of Bardot? Bardot is an Australian girl band and pop group from the early 2000s.
For more information, try Wikipedia.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Great theme for Monday night - solo singles from band members. One song I wish they'd played was Bright Eyes by Art Garfunkel. Surely his most well known (but rarely played) song. It would be good to have it played on Rage.

9 December 2000
19 July 2008
2 February 2013

I have a recording of it from rage, too.

I hope they do an Aussie one. I'd like to see Mark Seymour's solo clips which haven't aired on rage for a very long time.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

They did play it. They replaced the clips with Countdown performances as they were playing Countdown eps at this time as well

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

The Meldrum tapes im talking about as discussed on the previous page. Sorry im a bit slow

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Oh bugger. My recorder stopped just after the Daryl Hall videos. Can anyone help me out with the rest??

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Being a 90s 00s and post noughties Dance music freak I always welcome Dance Vault including 80s Funk and 70s DISCO
Unfortunately from what I noticed they tend to focus on the successful dance tracks of the late 90s like ATB 9pm till I come ALICE DEEJAY do u think your better off alone and many others however the Dance Vault they did on the first Monday of march contained a lot of forgotten rare videos like FLICKMAN the sound of Bamboo ATGOC repeated love DATURA open your mind 97 MARIO PIU somebody answer the phone and the absolute gorgeous biggest club banger was DJ JEAN get ready for the launch
I have nothing but never ending thanks to the ABC for making me the club idol I once was πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€those were the videos that kept awake all through the night beginning with Fridays new releases after 04:30am and Saturday nights at Oxford street DCM nightclubs then Sunday night at EP1 underground club in Kings Cross the best days of my life

We're in for an 80s night on The Vault this Monday night (early Tuesday morning) - brilliant!

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

^ Yes, except shame it's a short episode tonight. That's always a worry with me - that they'll pick a good theme when it's a shorter episode.


Coming up on the VAULT tonight a little slice of 1980 with The Korgis, Gary Numan Official, Cliff Richard, Chris Rea, Joan Armatrading, Hall & Oates, Michael Jackson, Stephanie Mills and more. 2:38 am on ABC TV.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

It's a shame the Joan Armatrading clip is a rotoscoped film copy of the original, which was recorded on videotape. The result is pretty poor quality. There was a period from the late '70s to early '80s where we in Australia often got the film copies because videotape was too expensive to use for copying and sending to the colonies. Film was much cheaper.

Prior to that, clips were only made on film, and after that period, videotape became cheap enough to use for distribution copies.

Rage has quite a few of these clips, such as Peter Gabriel "Games Without Frontiers", Blondie "Union City Blue" (among many others) and Boomtown Rats "I Don't Like Mondays". I now have digital copies of these clips from the source videotapes, and watching them is simply incredible in comparison to the film copies - no dust or scratches, completely clear images, properly saturated colours.

It reveals just how much resolution and quality was lost in transferring to film. Rage should source new copies of such clips.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Unfortunately, there is no vault episode scheduled for next week. Instead, a Missy Higgins & Friends Live program is airing (not part of rage).

There are no Wednesday or Thursday morning rage episodes this week either. I hope that this is not an omen.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault specialWe

It's most probably an over-zealous response to Oz Music Month, flooding our screens with current local artists. Bring on December, and more importantly ...

BRING ON JANUARY! More Countdown!

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault specialWe

I've checked ahead, and there is no vault episode next week, either

Instead there are two episodes of Doctor Who.

That is ridiculous. I mean, I love Doctor Who, but the new episode was aired Monday night, there is no need to repeat it (if that's what it is) or any other in a music timeslot.

Such a missed opportunity. Imagine celebrating Aus Music Month with a couple of Vaults worth of rare Aussie eighties videos.

I hope they've listened to my request for 'It's Your Move' by Zan, which they could lift from an episode of The Factory that they have (if not play the whole episode which I also suggested for Retro Month).

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault specialWe

The vault looks like it's back next week! There's an episode of rage scheduled on ABC on Tuesday morning next week.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault specialWe

I'm a bit out of routine, forgetting to check for a Vault playlist until now (an hour or two later than normal). It looks like 1983 is the theme.

Coming up on the VAULT tonight Tears for Fears, Men Without Hats, Jim Capaldi, F.R. David, Bette Midler, Carly Simon, Thompson Twins, Howard Devoto, Shriekback, Falco and more. 1:10 am on ABC TV. #rageabcvault

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault specialWe

What I LOVE about Vault nights, or even just Saturday nights/mornings, is the utter surprise at hearing a song which you distinctly remember from your youth, but haven't thought about for decades. All of a sudden, the song hits you, and you remember it like it was yesterday. Such an awesome feeling that only a show like Rage can give you. This has happened many times over the years, but last Monday's Vault had this memorable song:


  • BETTE MIDLER Favorite Waste Of Time (Atlantic)


Bette is not a favourite of mine, nor is much of her music, but this song has sat is my mind for 35 years. It finally resurfaced on Rage, and I got to enjoy a rare moment of reminiscing my youth. Thanks Rage! Keep digging up those gems!

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault specialWe

No Vault on Christmas Eve either - Monday 24th/Tuesday 25th. Of all times, it's most expected, I suppose. Let's hope The Vault comes back bigger and stronger in 2019. R R A A G G E E ! ! !

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault specialWe

I agree with you - there have been numerous occasions where I've rediscovered a song I didn't think I knew, but did, or hadn't thought of in decades, via the rage vault episodes and specials.

I also didn't think I knew 'Favourite Waste of Time', but it seemed vaguely familiar.

And d a m n about there being no Xmas eve vault episode either! Can I ask, where do you get this information more than a week ahead from? I used to get it from looking ahead at the schedule at https://www.abc.net.au/tv/programs/rage/, but recently the default has been set back to 2014, and none of the few 2018 episodes listed are dated now, for some reason. I guess that's what you get with the ABC with a Coalition government chronically underfunding it

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault specialWe

Rage will probably do another Christmas theme on Saturday night, as they have the last couple of years. Mind you, I don't know how many new Christmas songs there are anyway. I use 'On Tv Tonight'. They have up to two weeks in advance for countries all over the world.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

It looks like Vault nights might be back to some kind of regularity, although New Year's Eve seems to just be a big celebration night. Might be some good songs in there somewhere ...

Monday Night 31st December / Tuesday Morning 1st January

RAGE: NEW YEAR'S SPECIAL (12:19am to 5:59am)

After the fireworks ring in 2019, rage brings you an all night party mix to help you rock in the new year and keep the party going with classic tracks and party hits until the sun comes up.


Monday Night 7th December / Tuesday Morning 8th January

RAGE (1.29am to 2:31am)

For over 30 years rage has been showcasing a diverse range of music videos from Aussie and international artists. #WatchingRage

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Good to see the Vault is back next week... but only a 62 minute episode (if it starts on time)? I hope the theme is crap, to get one out of the way, if it's going to be that short.

Oh, we can say crap now? About ******* time (just testing) :smile:

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

The vault is only an hour long tonight... so of course they choose a theme that's right up my alley.

We're taking it back to the dancefloors of 1994 on the VAULT tonight. Expect to see videos by Pizzaman, K-Klass, Melodie MC, Future Sound of London - FSOL, Snap! and more. 1:30 am on ABCTV. #rageabcvault


PIZZAMAN Trippin' On Sunshine
DOOP Doop
GRID, THE Swamp Thing
TINMAN Eighteen Strings
REEL 2 REAL I Like To Move It
MELODIE MC Dum Da Dum
PRODIGY, THE No Good (Start The Dance)

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

K-KLASS What You're Missing

should be added after TINMAN above; I asked rage where the missing K-Klass clip mentioned in the blurb was, and they revised the playlist.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Looking ahead on the schedule, there is a 1 hour, 59 minute vault episode of rage next week. Hopefully it's back for good now.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

If only a Countdown was back for good, 90s special tonight, how crap

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

Though at the moment with Countdown episodes and Vault clips being played in ratios where the logo is going into the screen and just barely over the 4.3 box it is stressful to even collect anything that is dear to me as they are being all ruined.

As much as l love January, these hiccups are with ratios are making it too stressful

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

I don’t mind some dance and house music of the 90s and this playlist isn’t too bad from what I have just read. I will most likely watch this one. I wonder if ABC Me ch 723 are going to play any Countdown show replays from last Sunday morning’s Week 1 selection. I will be watching to see. Better still are Rage on ABC ch 2 going to play shows on Wednesday morning from Week 1 which we have seen done in past years. There certainly is space in their morning programs to do that once again. Who knows last year it did not really happen too much. I think there was the odd show replayed though it was far and few between from memory. Always good if they do this for anyone who may of missed or had something go wrong during the Saturday and Sunday morning replays.

Re: Every Monday night (Tuesday morning) on ABC1 now a Vault special

I like early and mid 90s dance, so am looking forward to the program tonight.

The ABC ME repeats don't repeat any of the Saturday night guest programmer/special segment, but do repeat the 5-6 and 6-7 slots (no Countdown was aired during that period, and hasn't been for the last few years) on Tuesday and Wednesday night, respectively.

If there is a rage show on Wednesday morning on ABC, that's when part of the Saturday night guest programmer/special hour is repeated. There is a 61 minute episode of rage on ABC at 1:02am on Wednesday morning this week. I imagine that one of the Countdown episodes will be repeated during it, and ads (or possibly one isolated music video) will fill up the remaining few minutes.

EDIT - OK, they've posted the playlist for Wednesday morning's ABC episode, and it does not repeat a Countdown, but instead repeats the Saturday morning playlist of retro videos:
