Obligatory Xmas Charity Single

Waaaaay back in the mid-90s I worked for B97, a commercial radio station in Bedford.  We were asked to support the local Anglia TV Kid’s Xmas charity, and so we did, with lots of on-air activity and THIS wee song, written and performed by Paul Garner (now a famous comedy writer) and me with some help from a lot of other lovely people.  We made cash for the kids, so it was a good thing.  Whether the single is a good thing or not I’ll leave up to you!

Written by Paul Garner & Neil Gardner

Performed by Paul Garner, Neil Gardner, Neil Bentley, Tim Page, B97 Crew, Yamaha Crew

Recorded at The Bunkers, Bedford

Floppy Gifts For Xmas

We at #TeamBahHumbug present our first salvo of the season, aimed squarely at #TeamChristmas…it’s “Floppy Gifts For Xmas”, the charity single I co-wrote back in the early 1990’s for radio station B97. Now listen and weep, mwah ha ha haaaa! (actually I’m quite proud of this and we made money for a great kids charity, so huzzah all round!)

Cover For HP Lovecraft Audiobook

As many of you know, I have just completed producing a new abridged reading of HP Lovecraft’s much loved novel “At The Mountains of Madness” for BBC Radio 7.  It is read by leading British acting blokey Richard Coyle and hits your airwaves over 5 days between Mon 1st November and Friday 5th November at 2pm/6pm/midnight.

Well,  if you happen to miss the series, or fall in love with it, or just fancy adding to you audiobook collection, I am very happy to announce that we are releasing an EXTENDED version of the series as a digital download audiobook…just in time for Xmas!  There will be around 30 mins of additional unheard material to feast your ears upon…and that means MORE Richard Coyle and MORE of Jon Nicholls superb compositions.

So…do you wanna see the cover art for the audiobook?  I bet you do!  Well, here it is…by the outrageously talented Angus Syme:

Now if that doesn’t get you itching to buy a copy I don’t know what will!  Well, maybe the thought of 3 hours of top notch HP Lovecraft goodness.

More news on cost and availability coming soon.
