Spelling It Out

6 Music's secret society of wonderful music and daft chat with The Hawk, and his long-suffering producer Slev, took a turn for the surreal, yet again.

The presenter was delirious, The 5.15 Request was gorgeous, and the latest on the day's forecast from BBC Weather Centre was brought to you by Darren Bett/Brown/Breast. There was also another episode of radio's finest musical quiz, The Rockbook Files, which concentrated on The American Music Club.

Today the theme was 'spelling it out' - Hawk kicked things off with F.E.A.R by Ian Brown and you ended the show with D.A.N.C.E by Justice. It was very nearly D.I.S.C.O by Ottowan. Phew, that was close.

Hawk also had a countdown conundrum for you to solve, and Slev asked you to provide a secret word for her to get into this very show information here! Well, due to lack of sleep, and imagination, the word is ostensibily and here's the definition for you:

"When something is done ostensibly, its truth has not been proven. Ostensibly can be used as a more sophisticated way of saying "apparently." It can also be used to describe something presented as being true or appearing to be true, but usually hiding a different motive or meaning. For example, "The security guards were ostensibly looking for people trying to bring alcohol into the stadium, but I think it was more of a counter-terrorism effort." The related adjective ostensible means "apparent or evident."

Job done. See you in the morning!
