Hello! Just a quick note to say that Out On Blue Six has moved, like when Play School ‘moved house’ to BBC2, to http://out-on-blue-six.blogspot.com. Well, it’s not strictly a straightforward move, as it’s kind of a new style blog, but there’s already lots of good stuff up there about Morph, mono versions of famous albums, eighties soul records, Children’s ITV and – inevitably – Ricky Hervaid. You’ll see when you get there.

Day 22 of the Advent Calendar Podcast, and it’s that tune you know but don’t know the name of, Sleigh Ride, as originally performed by composer Leroy Anderson. And his orchestra. He didn’t run round playing all of the instruments himself. But why does this provoke us into improvising an opening scene from a fifties Hollywood blockbuster…?

Day 21 of the Advent Calendar Podcast, and it’s back to the long-lost days when Elton John was a vaguely ‘cred’ artist with a liking for doing tongue-in-cheek b-sides, and the utterly disrespectful and indeed utterly unfathomable (Ho Ho Ho) Who’d Be A Turkey At Christmas?. How Belle & Sebastian and Gene Hunt fit into it, though, is another story…
