By George I Think We've Got It!

We have done it. If the BBC don't come knocking first thing tomorrow morning with a sack full of tenners and a slot on 6Music, then it's their stupid loss. Tonight's show was the turning point in which I felt that we delivered something fucking special. Gary has become a valuable part of the show as a co-presenter, and our live music segment worked a charm. It was an acoustic session tonight, which was a nice change for the band too as it isn't what they are known for. In addition to the new system of the bands introducing themselves, we started something else. We played a studio single by Centre Excuse before their set, and to end their set they introduced the new single, which we had ready. It worked really well, and will definitely become part of the system from now on. The other advantage of doing acoustic sessions is that it doesn't take as long to get ready. Last week's band were good and everything, but they were a six piece and they took ages to sound check.
