This is pretty cool.
Rage is an Australian music television program screening on Friday nights since 1987. Kind of an institution over here. For a long time they have published their playlists and a some guy (Patrick Galbraith) has put together a website that streams the weekly playlists in correct order, courtesy of youtube/vevo, going all the way back to 1997. Fantastic for a bit of a nostalgia trip.
Since 1998 RAGE has posted all their episode playlists online. So I created a website that combines these playlists with YouTube allowing you to travel back through time and re-experience RAGE‘s recent history.
Scraping the data (particularly the 90s web pages) wasn’t easy due to broken and inconsistent markup so I have posted a database dump in case anyone else wants to play with the data.
