Just saw this on the rage Extras page. Doesn't leave long to make requests/suggestions (if the playlist isn't already finalised), though.
Well that's exciting news. I send in my requests every few months, so they are probably sick of getting letters from me! It would be very cool if some of them got played though...
One of my requests was played on one of the Tuesday morning vault shows a couple of months ago. Coincidence? Or not?
And then they could back it up the following week with their shortest videos, although that would obviously take a lot more programming to fill the show :)
The shortest music video I have in my collection is Cold Chisel "Hold Me Tight" which goes for 1 min 46 sec. It's the only one I have less than 2 minutes long. The next shortest one I have is Clouds "Here Now" which is 2 min 3 sec.
I'm sure there are shorter videos around that are proper videos for real songs released as singles.
According to the DVB (onair) TV guide, Sat 7th May is programmed by GangGajang, not a Vault special. Although I imagine Cal & co. will programme quite a few vault clips.
I wonder if it has slipped 1 week due to Prince carking it?
The Coming Up section of the rage website has GANGgajang coming up for this weekend... but the Extras page still says Vault special.
I gather it's GANGgajang though, as they wouldn't have put that on the Coming Up page today if not.
Some shocking typos though in the description:
Sit out on the patio, breath some humidity and watch Gang Gajang host Rage.
Here's a selection of what they'll be playing:
Jimmy Barnes – No Second Place
Yothu Yindi – Tjupina
The electronic TV guide has the Vault special listed for this coming weekend.
Blurb on the website now... I wonder which Bananarama video it is:
This Saturday we've got a VAULT SPECIAL for you, so kick back and prepare for an entertaining night journeying back through music video history. We love these occasions that allow us to unscrew The Vault door and lay light to some tapes we haven't shown for a long time.
If you're a sucker for rare music videos, you do NOT want to miss this week's Raaaage!
The Vault Special will be uncovering lost gems from BANANARAMA, STEVIE WONDER, BOBBY BROWN, ENYA, JAMES BROWN AND THE FAMOUS FLAMES and much much more.
Watch the VAULT SPECIAL on Rage, Saturday 30th April from 10:30-11:30am, returning for the night from 11:05pm on ABC1.
A pretty good playlist for the Vault special.
Good too see Rage has chosen some lesser known stuff rather than the same old, same old.
Especially impressed with the three Bats clips - brings back some great memories of that time...
I got one of my requests up! Yay! One is better than none!
Robert De Niro's Waiting - rare vid.? Please.
A lot of songs I don't know in tonight's line up. Will be interesting.
