The Gospel According to Richard Herring #AdamAndJoe #SaveBBC6Music

I realise that the title of today's post may be somewhat controversial but it's Jesus' special day (and let's face it, he's got less than a week left to do his work in the world) so stay with me. 
The great, big, adorable bear did some world class bible mangling on yesterday's show and once I'd wiped the splattered smoothie from my screen, I sucked it out and considered using it to replace the "Pardon Me" ring tone that I'm currently annoying people with.

Of course, this could never have been instead of a daily nugget from Adam and Joe so I'll pop that up first.  

It's a mark of my feline fetish that I derived the title for this little spoolt from the tiniest part at the end of an otherwise non-cat related ramble from 8th December 2007 about simple but satisfying things.
Since both are alluded to in this post, MY simple satisfaction of the week was in noting that both Chris 'Saltyman' Salt and Dan Pate made little posts on the BBC 6Music Blog.  The loyal troupes are gathering.

Richard's bible bobble is next but since it's Sunday (international day of overindulgence) I thought it was appropriate to also include a rare, in fact twice-only-played jingle from Adam. This is for anyone who has committed their day of rest to making a video for Adam's "Changes" (see below the line) today.

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.
