It is 1:40am on the 27th and Rage has not even started yet. Running 2 hours late.
It started at 11:33pm here in Melbourne. You must be in Sydney where they would have had election coverage. Apparently Labour got their butts kicked but that would have been known well before 11:30pm so there is no need to interrupt Rage with continuous news of which you would already be aware of anyhow.
Isn't that what they have started a 24 hour news channel for? They should have made it a 24 hour music channel as they show all the news on ABC1 and ABC21 anyhow - what's the point of repeating themselves on a 3rd channel?
I didn't watch rage last night as it looked CRAP! Was there some political thing on before????
I've said it before and I'll say it again-music's always the casualty whenever sporting & political events take centre stage.
When they play tedious, repetitive rubbish like they do for 48 out of 52 weeks for the year then who cares what time the show starts!!.
Thank god they do not hold elections in January!!
That "Guest Programmer" format is so tired and lame. Same old playlists, same old crap. I just realised looking at Saturday mornings playlist that nothing new will come from archives into the Rage playlist until they start looking for material for next January.
Any chance of a Wildcard special to break this repetitive monotony I wonder? At least there might be a chance to see something a bit different. This must now be the 2,145,998th airing on Rage for Nirvanas "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
Only 9 months till something decent returns to liven up our Rage nights!!
I've been thinking since next year marks 25 years since Rage began whether it would be worthwhile pushing them to have viewers program the show for the entire anniversary month of April?
I reckon that'd be great - especially if one of us programmed the show - would be brilliant if that happened. That would at least ensure no dull Rage for a month at least!
I agree with the other comments too - sport and elections ALWAYS get first dibs ahead of anything else which is appalling. There is more to life than those 2 things which bore me - give me some flair thanks!
