Contribute to the audition annual report

As we said on the programme tonight, we'd like you to send us your lists of your top ten CDs of the year, so we can compile them into the audition annual report. We'll then play pieces from the final compiled list on our shows over the Christmas/New Year period.

Just to recap: your top ten CDs of the year, with two rules - we must have either played something from the CD on audition, or it must be a CD that we would be likely to play on the show (so no voting for Richard's guilty pleasure, Jennifer Lopez) and it has to have a 2006 release date.

Please send them to the email address to your right, and please get them to us by Sunday 10 December. We're looking forward to seeing what you like for a change, rather than us imposing our taste on you!

Show 30 Mp3 up and running

Just a quick note to say that by hook or by crook we are getting the Mp3s uploaded one by one. This is all a bit hit or miss with the recordings coming from all different directions every week. I would like to say a special thanks to Robert for his invaluable support with this.

I should also point out that despite what I may have suggested during Show 30, Lloyd Barrett is not a member of The Necks. If I was the kind of person that dropped their friends in it I would say that it was Al's duff information that lead me to say that, but I'm not that kind of person, so I wont :)

Website Overhauled

Well just when you were beginning to wonder if the new Wembley Stadium would open before our website was brought up to date I've managed to find the time to give it a good overhaul.

The archive has been separated into three sections, one containing our first series of shows, another for the current run and a new Exclusives section that currently remains empty but will hopefully house Mp3's of some of the exclusives we play on audition.

Series one remains incomplete. We do not have a recording of Show 23, if anyone out there has a copy we would be very pleased to hear from you. Shows one to nine are still not there though I do have recordings. Uploading them would be a very long and tiresome job that I can't bring myself to undertake at this late stage unless you all get together and lobby us incessantly :)

The Mp3's are now up to date then. Thanks for listening
