Rage great Gauge and Unbeatable Music Video Show
23 June 2006 | by mike_evans2004See all my reviews

Rage is Advertising free on The Peoples TV network not some media moguls toy.

Rage, therefore, is not beholden to play advertisers releases and their parent companies influences.

Rage plays a wide range of music that, yes, unashamedly plays the occasional crap Aussie new release - at least it proves its independence!

At the risk of stating the obvious. It's "prime time" (breakfast time)is taken up by the Top 50. Think about it - the Top 50 SINGLES sold. Such sales have had a real ability to be manipulated in the past - I once bought a new release I wanted for 50 cents (a 2 week special price) - it shot to the top of the charts. Dah! Byers of SINGLES are largely kids and fans and maybe if the album is largely crap. Byers of ALBUMS are very different, in that they are a far more diverse group, than single byers. People including me.

Since Rage began in 1987 I have seen the evolution of music forms. I am right now watching some fat under understandable bros wrapping some crapping with, what looks like, condoms on their heads... but someone buys it. It's all good to see the changing form over time (opps Delta Goodrams apparently permanent place in the Top 40 'Together we are one' seems to never move :)

The key is variety; and this shows links with ABCs JJJ radio and others enabling it to showcase up-and-coming artists which, when it all comes down to it, is what keeps Rage cutting edge!
