    Vangelis's Love theme sounds like You're Just Too Good To Be True! (Is that what that song's called?)

  • Comment number 2.

    Adam read my mind!

  • Comment number 3.

    Very good, well done. Good luck with the Bowie Quest!

  • Comment number 4.

    Mmmmm a delicious slice of chill cake there Buckles...not too sure that the Sparks are chill material though...that song kinda built and I was worried where it was gonna go, so was not too relaxed at that point!

    My favourite bit was the mash up with Byrne/Eno/Byrds/Beatles/Network. Excellent work, it truly sounded like one piece of music.

    I rode the rollercoaster of emotions today from feeling chuffed that you read my question to the lovely Emmy, all the way down to total mortification at my atrocious typing skills! Yikes! Nice to think that I may have introduced Emmy to the wonderful music of "Rickle" Lee Jones!

    the Bowie Paint Jingle was genius!

  • Comment number 5.

    Now that is one delicious podcast. Great job!

  • Comment number 6.

    Good show, man.

    I haven't listened to it while "eating a grape" but it's great to listen to while "having a crepe." (I am having ze joke).


  • Comment number 7.

    Another great show Bucks. Hendrix was a bit of downer to start the show off with but I didn't mind the Sparks track (This Town Isn't Big Enough was the first single I bought.). And it was great to end the show with Eno's An Ending.
    But I'm really cross with myself that I didn't suggest The Love Theme From Bladerunner. Its one of my favourite tracks and I didn't mention it because I thought it had already been on an earlier show (when I wasn't listening..). Looking forward to next weeks already.

  • Comment number 8.

    ..... oh and the Bowie Paint jingle was great.

  • Comment number 9.

    ..... and I've said great three times in two short posts. Must get a Thesaurus.

  • Comment number 10.

    Very much enjoyed this podcast. Never heard any Emmy material, great or otherwise, so I think I'll have to rectify that.

  • Comment number 11.

    Great show Adam. Perfect Sunday arvo listening. More of the same please!

    Somewhat presumptuous I know, but after reading the 'suggestions and questions' thread I did make my own chillcakes mix - if anyone is interested it's here:


    Word to the Moderator - I've re-read the house rules and genuinely don't think I'm breaking them by posting this; I'm not a professional dj touting for work and people don't have to pay to stream or download this, I'm just linking to some tunes that I hope people might enjoy after listening to this week's show. Hope this is ok - it's meant in the best spirit.

    Dear Adam,
    This was a great chill cake.
    The Podcast music snippets were so good I downloaded the whole show but I'm got stuck on Booker T - Sunday Morning for the past hour (rewinding it on itunes and playing it over and over).
    Thanks for introducing me to some cool music.
    I'm very chillaxed now.
    toodles and love.

    Congrats on the Sony guys!
    Hope you gave Stephen a good old shout out as you collected your award!

  • Comment number 15.

    Yay! I just came on to check if there was any news...I told you it was in the bag! Is there anything funnier than the 'Text the Nation' jingle? I don't think so...Good on ya guys, well deserved.

  • Comment number 16.

    Congrats on the Sony, well deserved.

  • Comment number 17.

    Well done fellas, hugely deserved award.

  • Comment number 18.

    Congratulations on your GOLDEN Sony award. May it shine on, always. Much deserved for years of super stereo radiophonic pleasure! x

  • Comment number 19.

    Big congrats on the Sony!

  • Comment number 20.

    Dear Adam,
    This is a polite request for the IPlayer team to not blindly cut off the show at 2:00 hours elapsed, because 'An Ending' was still playing! I felt this went against both the chilled theme of the show, AND your mixtape concept.

    This isn't the first time it's happened, either...

    ...I only write this because I care.

  • Comment number 21.

    Huge congrats! What do you say to THAT Mark Thompson?

  • Comment number 22.

    Great work on the Sony...the ascent to rulers of the universe is on track! Mwahahaha!

  • Comment number 23.

    Show us your Sony!!!

    Well done Adam and Joe.

  • Comment number 24.

    Well done Adam and Joe... so happy for you guys

    I know this isn't about Chill Cakes but it is on the subject of Big Mix Tape.
    Buckles I have just discovered your letter to Bowie and I have to say it is one one the cutest things I have ever read (apart from some of the cards and notes I get from my daughters!).
    Endearing, self deprecating, sweet, honest, funny and respectful to Bowie himself. Bowie would have to have a hard heart or be an insanely busy person to not reply to such a delightful request. You are so clearly a huge fan and have always championed his cause.

    Go on Bowie...
    "I wish you would" take the "Time" to read Adam's letter about "An Occasional Dream" of his, to have you as a guest on his show. You may have a "Sense of Doubt", but make some "Changes" and take a chance,; it could be a "Fantastic Voyage" that you won't "Look Back in Anger" on.
    He may look "Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed", but Adam is no "Space Oddity" he's just "Aladdin Sane" about your music. So "What in the World" have you got to lose? Make a "Wild Eyed Boy from FreeCloud"'s dream come true.
    PS if circle has a circumference of 67cm what is the "Width of a Circle" ? (tee hee!)

    Hi Ad, just watched your sony gold award speech- very funny and good work with the two "STEPHEN!!" shout outs (even if there wasn't an audible "just coming!". Your shows with Joe are by far the best things I've ever listened to on radio, and although I can't wait for Joe to return, your mixtape is so much better than anything else on the airwaves right now. Keep up the great work. David McK

  • Comment number 27.

    I second your comment runDMCK, where did you see the awards speech?

  • Comment number 28.

    Scratch that last question...just watched it...very funny speech!
    Here's the URL if anyone wants to see it

  • Comment number 29.

    The first "just coming" is quite definately audible (if a little late), and the last one is merely partially obscured by Evans' untimely interjection. No one leaves Buckles hanging!

  • Comment number 30.

    We have a winner! Golllden Years, wohhhhwohhhh, wahwahwah! Jarvis made it a double with his gong too. Such a lovely big slice of humble pie for Thompson to get his his renowned gnashers into.

    Sony Award 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.


    /Agree, but did you really call Joe a **** in the speech though? Ah, sweet Song Wars friction memories...

    Hmmm, audience participation...nice, like camomile lotion on itchy hidden parts.

    Speaking of, I raised an eyebrow in a pale imitation of Roger Moore to see 4 of my suggestions getting onto the latest Mix. If I had a massive ego, I'd now hyperventilate, flap around the house like a kid with advanced ADD about how awesome my music taste is, then waffle on about it here in no less than 500 words. But I don't, so won't. Course if I had no ego, I wouldn't have mentioned it at all, but ego-less people only exist up snow-capped mountains in Tibet.

    Other choices - Golden Age, ah, definitely one of the finest balls in his can(n)on. It's also a perfect break-up song (if there can be such a thing), and I think the whole LP it's taken from, is centred around that theme. I find Bjork, pretty um, 'exhausting' to listen to, but 'Come to me' is a thing of wonder, which would've also slotted in really nicely with the 'New Relations' concept.

    Emmy The Great came across much less imperiously than might've been expected by some, though taking your pants off in front of a lady who isn't your loved one, or doctor is somewhat questionable.

    Not understanding the massage giving displeasure. You're doing it wrong man!

    Blowing off all kinds of appointments is a real joy - I mean what's going to happen as a result? A big flippin ash cloud covering half the planet, worsening a current recession? A hadron collider misfiring, creating a mini-blackhole sucking in the entire solar system? People need to chill the BLADDY HELL OUT about chill time, for FLIP'S SAKE!

    I love you Count Buckules and your mix tape is a lovely addition to your locker.

    In the drawing above it looks like you have a Macbook Air, I thought you more a Macbook Pro kind of guy... I am lame.

    Hoorah for Serafinowicz next week.

    Congratulations on the Sony Awards!

    Really enjoying the Big Mix Tapes. When I was in sixth form (having read High Fidelity but being completely inept with girls) I made complilations for my friends. I remember one tape was called "42" and was made to help a particular friend cheer up a bit. Being a teenager had been getting him down for a while, so i put together a 90min mixtape of music interspersed with speech from "The Hitch-hikers guide to the Galaxy", i did all the voices myself including a rather good Marvin the Paranoid Android.

    Apparently it did the job and he still has it!

    Sounds Funny Mix Tape: Nice bit of Frank Zappa dialogue at the beginning...Lumpy Gravy?

  • Comment number 34.

    Forgot to add, I saw Emmy the Great at the Big Chill last year. she was a highlight.
