Blogden's Nutgone Friends
How are you? I am fine. Last week we recorded the pilot for Adam Buxton's Big Mix Tape with Julian Barratt. It was pretty good I think though we haven't finished putting it all together just yet so excessive trumpet blowing would be premature. One of the bits that worked nicely however was a quick-fire Q&A with Julian using many of the questions you so kindly supplied. As we're going to be recording another couple of shows this week, I was hoping to prevail upon your wit and generosity once again for my next set of guests!
The first show we're taping is called Toddler Tunes and features great music that babies and young children would also enjoy (but not just Disney songs, Girls Aloud and Muse). I'm hoping my guests for that show will be Danny & Gaz from Supergrass, a.k.a. The Hot Rats, who are of course no strangers to 6 Music and have over the years made some of my favourite music ever. As with Julian I imagine our conversation will meander ludicrously hither and probably thither (though I'll do my best to stick to the hither) but at some point I'll whip out your questions, Tommy gun like, and pepper them with enquiries!
Then I'll be reunited with decorated pop video genius, Son of Rambow director and the only man ever to stand in for Joe on our radio show: [Garth Jennings] (who coincidentally made the joyful Muppet-type promo for Pumping On Your Stereo by Supergrass). I think that show will be called Partytime! (Vol 1) and will be themed around party and celebration music but it's not set in concrete yet. Garth has worked with everyone from REM, Radiohead, Beck, and Vampire Weekend to Eels, Pulp, Blur, Robbie Williams and Sacha Baron Cohen and even Adam 'Buckules' Buxton, so there's a lot to ask him about!
We're taping on Thursday so the quicker you can get some questions in, the more likely we are to incorporate them into our exhaustive preparations! Thanks chaps!
By the way, I'm hoping to come to the Save 6 Music gathering outside Broadcasting House on Saturday 27th at midday. Maybe see some of you there.
