It Was Brian Eno!

Last week I played a popular jingle known as 'the computer turny onny offy sound', which goes like this. You hear it in your house and at work every day, but does anyone know who wrote it and the others? As nobody heard last week's show due to the Olympic closing ceremony, I attempted to play it again. The faders didn't work so I couldn't play it, so I snapped and just said "It's Brian Eno". If there was a prize, then I would have won it.

With no Olympic closing ceremony to stop us, we managed a really tight two hour show. What better way to welcome back our millions of listeners after they deserted us for a week?
