This is Not A Song #AdamAndJoe #SaveBBC6Music

Trying to redress the Buckles love balance today with a rarely played (and some might say for good reason) little ditty from Commander Cornballs.

Having started off by not really enjoying the laborious pressure of doing Song Wars every week, successive early wins salved Joe's competitive lust and ego. So when Joe had to take a weekend off and learned that Song Wars would go ahead without him, his little eyes started a-poppin' and he felt the need to dribble this nonsense into our ears.  Truth be told, he'd apparently just bought his Kaossilator and really wanted to take it for a musical run down the track.

From 8th March 2008

You can find a brand new YouTube video of Adam using his Kaossilator but I'm not going to link it here because it's really important that you watch it in the context of the "In B Flat" thingamy. So open that page, set some of them going and then go to Adam's channel & punch his button.


The BBC Trust page is here and to make it even easier,this is a really helpful page.
If you want to join in a friendly meeting of supportive minds, there will be a gathering at the end of the month. Details are here but I'm quoting in case you don't use the Facebooking.

Date: Saturday, March 27, 2010
Time: 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Location: Broadcasting House, Portland Place, London
Description: On Saturday 27th March at 12pm, we will gather together outside Broadcasting House to protest against the closure of BBC 6Music.
We have lined up some well-known speakers and live buskers to create an air of festivity. This is a celebration of our beloved station; a demonstration of support for the staff, musicians, and a collective show to the Consultation team that we do not want to lose our station.
What the BBC proposes is unacceptable. 6Music is the only place that caters for our diverse tastes; the only station where you will hear Howling Bells played back to back with Seasick Steve; The Isley Brothers leading into dEUS, Delphic, Yeasayer and all topped off with dash of Half Man Half Biscuit.
The DJs play the music they love for people who love music. It is valuable showcase for new bands and artists, and regardless of what the BBC thinks, we will not find this on Radio 2.
So please join us on the 27th. Come along to show your solidarity and support; bring a flask of tea and have a sing-along all in the name of saving 6Music. Invite everyone you know who might not have been invited through the Facebook group and let’s make this a protest to remember!

**Please note that this is intended to be a friendly, peaceful and safe protest. **
