January is Rage retro month

It’s January again.  Time for Rage to go back through the ABC archive and dig out those classic pop music shows of years gone by.  For the next four Saturday nights (or early Sunday morning), Rage goes retro in what has been an annual tradition for years.

Retro month kicks off with a one-hour preview today (Saturday) from 10.30am with a selection of classic tunes.

Then, from 1.10am tonight/Sunday morning, it’s back to the days of Countdown — featuring episodes from December 1984, June 1983, March 1987 and March 1980 plus a 1978 interview with David Bowie — and then it’s further back to 1974 with a GTK special featuring Sherbet.

Also featured is an episode of 1980s series Edge Of The Wedge.
