Podcast Day - Yeah! Is this the first sniff ofBoggins? #AdamAndJoe #SaveBBC6Music

You may not be able to believe this but long before the Adam And Joe Show on BBC 6Music was rebranded as "Boggins" (29th August 2009), Adam discovered the stinky little dog which was later to become the show's temporary and controversial mascot. He used it to start the podcast more than a year ago on 1st March 2009.

Hearing this has reminded me that Adam once thought Boggins sounded a bit like Brian Gittins but I remember another voice he used like that so I'll dig it out for tomorrow's sound slug.

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. 

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!

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

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.
