The Sony Gold Winning Wording....

I just felt the need to preserve this in case it ever slides off the Radio Academy page.

THIS is why the judges chose The Adam and Joe Show for Gold in 2010.
One of the funniest moments of the entire evening.


Best Comedy


Adam and Joe

Presenters: Adam Buxton & Joe Cornish 
Executive Producer: James Stirling 
Producers: Ben Appleyard & Xanthe Fuller 
Broadcast Assistants: Charlotte Guzzan & Lucy Cooke

The judges thought this entry was superb: extremely funny, engaging and inclusive. It was also very strong on originality in both its content and its formats musical pastiches, features, presenter-led sequences and banter. It is clear that a great deal of thought and preparation behind this programme, but the presenters great strength is to make hard work sound easy. It interacts with its audience in a refreshing, engaging way. A wonderful, ambitious, funny programme.

 yeah, the punctuation drives me a little loopy too but I'm in no position to judge.

Adam Buxton does Word Of Mouth - The Word June2010 #AdamAndJoe #SaveBBC6Music

Joe will be thrilled to know that his Christmas gift to Adam now resides in his toilet.  That's some kind of a supreme accolade on Planet Alpha Male, isn't it?

Another track to add to the Adam-Does-DylanEP #AdamAndJoe #SaveBBC6Music

This was too good to go unmarked. From today's Adam Buxton's Big Mixtape.

You can catch the full show, in all it's warmth and glory here, or in a handy podcast here.

Public Enemy's Can't Do Nuttin' For Ya Man - Bucklesstyle #AdamBuxton #SaveBBC6Music

You don't mind me making a random post, do you?

Here's a sweet little Mini-Baby-Buckles intervention, cleaning up this naughty, naughty track to make it all Sunday and nice for you.

There are three days left for the whole show's worth of iPlayer fulfilment.  It featured the incomparable Peter Serafinowicz as the guest contributor and you can find the track listing at the 6Music Blog.  

If you've failed yourself in some way by only just discovering the aural rejuvenating bacta fluid that is Adam Buxton's Big Mixtape, you could have a little fiddle around here to see if some idiothole has found a magical way for you to dance through a sort of time-space continuum and bring you shows from the mysterious past.

If you really are in some unholy rush to listen to the show from last Sunday and have no discernible appreciation of the musical content, you can hotwire your device into what is called a Pod Cast. These 'pods' are only cast once a week and after seven days they sink into the swamps of Dagobah like last week's R2 unit.


You may not listen to any of the content herein, read any of the 'words' or click any of the links unless you are absolutely committed to attending the Save BBC 6Music and Asian Network protest on Saturday. Applications for exemption to this ruling will all be considered but they'd better be flippin' good ones.

Find the Adam & Joe Book on sale today #AdamAndJoe

It's out of print. You knew that, didn't you?  Your only hope is to strive for a decent second hand copy.
Personally, I quite like the bits of orange and Twix stuck between the pages of mine.

I think these were originally from Joe's own MySpace but they're now hosted on a fan's Flickr.
