Well yesterday BBC Two unveiled its new look, not too long after BBC One launched its new idents. Being a bit of a TV pres geek enthusiast like James O’Malley, I am of course interested (even though I seem to watch hardly any actual television these days). The reception seems to have been fairly mixed, […]
Fans of Mixing It who use Last.fm should consider joining the Mixing It Last.fm group! The neat thing is that each Last.fm group has its own “radio station”. The more diverse the music collections of the group members is, the more eclectic (and there like the real Mixing It) the radio station becomes. I’ve just […]
I’ve been fiddling around with Gadgets again, and I have to say I stand corrected about the weather gadget! I hadn’t realised that dragging them away from the sidebar actually makes gadgets more functional. I now know that Sunday will be cloudy and Monday and Tuesday will be rainy.

Tomorrow is a sad day for fans of experimental music, and it is a particularly poor one for the reputation of the BBC in certain circles. Probably the best music programme on radio, Mixing It, has been axed. The final programme will be tomorrow at 2215 on Radio 3. Mixing It was probably the only […]
