Make Your Video for Adam Buxton's "Changes" #AdamAndJoe #SaveBBC6Music

Adam's latest blog entry gives his views about the whole BBC 6Music situation but I'm a bit concerned that one section of the post may have been overlooked and that would be a dreadful shame.

Not only can you download Adam's wonderful, passionate song and learn the words, you can make a video for it and post a link in the comments section on Adam's YouTube Channel and he will judge it. Heck, he may even reward it. Here's what he says.....
So anyway, this song! It’s a version of Bowie’s Changes that features my impression of David and some painful singing (with the help of 6 Music’s Tom Robinson on the choruses! Thanks Tom!) I did a full length version but it was a little too gruelling so here’s a slightly shorter one for you to listen to, ignore, use to torture terror suspects, whatever you fancy. However, if you did like it and felt sufficiently moved, you might like to make a video for it! Then in May I’ll pick my favourite and award some kind of prize, say Adam Buxton/Adam & Joe odds and sods and tickets to BUG! Wow! Imagine all the Adam Buxton/Adam & Joe odds and sods and tickets to BUG! What could the Adam Buxton odds and sods be?! My socks! Bits of my hair!! Or my book!!! Not a book I’ve written, just a book I own. I don’t know, I’ll work something out, but anyway, here’s the song with lyrics beneath in case you want to study them for your English degree. And if you do make a video post a link on my You Tube channel comments section.

Here's that jingle Adam made for the legendary 2008 Video Wars.

Of course, if you have a Mac (as Adam does !!??) you can  ctrl click > download linked file. ("Right click to download" - flippin' PC ponce speak)

Check out Adam's latest blog entry. Read what he has to say about 6Music, look at the picture of the the #Giftsquadron's hard work, download Adam's wonderful, passionate song and learn the words, make a video and tell your friends. Then, and only then may you sit down and have a cup of tea.
The BBC Trust page is here and to make it even easier, this is a really helpful page. However, this fella reckons that filling in the consultation is the way to go.

If you want to join in a friendly meeting of supportive minds, there will be a gathering next Saturday. Full details are here but in brief:-

Saturday 27th March at 12pm at Broadcasting House
(located on Portland Place, W1A 1AA).
The nearest station is Oxford Circus although it can also be easily reached from Great Portland Street.  See here for a map of the area.
