I've noticed in recent weeks that rage hasn't been posting about the VAULT on Mondays on FB. They do post the playlists on their website. Could it be that they have a new social media manager? It seems odd that they wouldn't publicise about it as much anymore. The exception was the Helen Reddy and Max Merritt tribute VAULT.
I've noticed that too. But this week (the only time I've checked), they posted the playlist several hours before it was on the website (before lunch time) on rage's instagram page, https://www.instagram.com/p/CGOIznnD_12/.
Oddly, last week, there was a facebook post with the vault playlist posted on Monday morning - but only briefly; it had been taken down when I checked the rage facebook page again only an hour or so later.
PS, there's no vault next week. Instead, there's a Dr Who marathon, which is also on the early hours of Monday and Wednesday morning.
Hmm there is no vault scheduled for 27 October, either. Another Dr. Who marathon in its place. I'm not a Dr. Who fan, but someone I know is, and said that these are not new episodes/there is no particular reason for the ABC to be running a marathon of these episodes now.
It's very peculiar. Especially also removing a VAULT post.
Weird. To be honest lately i am enjoyinv **** vaults or no vaults. I have no space on my recorder. I've been putting all the 'retro' stuff on discs by year. That's why i love the year specials. Saves me so much time.
I don't usually watch Rage during the year but last night while channel surfing came across a Richard Clapton clip live on Countdown. Watched a bunch and recorded the rest. Anyway is this common (countdown performances on the vault) or a one off? Some interesting clips. For instance the Peter Allen song Bi-Coastal which AFAIK I've never heard before..
Thanks Nathan will be keeping an eye on the vault from now on. Most of the ones I missed look interesting the new romantic artists in particular
A brief Google tells me that's an indie record label. If so yeah blah.

Wish rage would do a black & white 90s vault. 80s would be good too, but i think a 90s would get the rage team more keen. Just to name a few below, and please feel free to add to the list your suggestions!
Man on the moon - REM
Vogue - Madonna
**** i wish i was your Lover - Sophie B Hawkins
Alive - Pearl Jam
Strong Enough - Sheryl Crow
Wonderwall - Oasis
Drive - REM
Bang & Blame - REM
Rhythm Nation - Janet Jackson (yes, i know released in 1989, but a hit in 1990 and if rage can get it wrong at times, so can i)
Give It Away - RHCP
Walking in Memphis - Marc Cohn
Tip of my Tongue - Diesel
Ring Ring Ring - De La Soul
REM seemed to have a thing for B&W clips
So I recorded what I think was a preview of the next vault on Saturday morning. It was advertised as "psychedelic" but some of the clips were not what I would call psychedelic like "Coming Up" by McCartney. It's possible that I recorded the wrong program not sure?
Thanks...just looked at the Rage website and just seven songs. Still worth it for the Hot Chocolate video,don't think I'd seen that one and don't think it was a hit in Australia despite almost making number one in the UK
Love Thy Will Be Done - Martika
I don't understand why don't they show old Countdown episodes on the Monday night that people have been requesting? Do they deliberately hold them back for the January "Rage Goes Retro" programs? Are they difficult to track down? Is it too much work???
Surely it would be more interesting than a bunch of video clips we've seen a zillion times? I'd even settle for some Countdown Revolution/Factory stuff if push came to shove.
1980 is next week's vault theme, going by the Saturday morning preview.
STEPHANIE MILLS Never Knew Love Like This Before (20th Century Fox)
BOZ SCAGGS Jojo (CBS)

GLENN CARDIER Expectations (Infinity)
THE POLICE De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da (A & M Records)
PLASTIC BERTRAND Telephone A Telephone Mon Bijou (RCA)
ABBA On And On And On (RCA Victor)
Don't think I can recall "Once In A While" which was probably the follow up to "More Than I Can Say" or the Plastic Bertrand one
