ear worms

Yay! The tremendously silly Adam and Joe have returned to beat on the inner ear drum once again. I used to watch the TV show back in the day, but for sometime now they’ve been on radio shows only. After a long stint of doing other things (how dare they leave me!) they are back for a twelve week run.

One of the best parts of the Adam and Joe Show (BBC 6 music on saturday mornings) is a section called Song Wars, where they pick  a theme, each one makes a song and the listeners choose their favourite. When Quantum of Solace was announced as the name of the new Bond movie (yes, it’s a while ago) I was tickled pink by Joe’s version of what the theme tune could sound like. Shameful the film didn’t take him up if you ask me 😉


and, of course if you like that sort of thing you must listen to our own home grown (groan?) boys, Dermot and Dave on 98FM (weekdays, drive time).

But Adam and Joe (or even Dermot and Dave) are not the only tasty ear worms out this week. The eminently talented, and slightly crazy, Mitch Benn is on podcast 7 (7!) of gatherings of humour. He accepts original songs from artists anywhere with a comedy theme “It’s a showcase for comic songwriters to get their work heard” (man, quality control on that one has got to be tough). You can see his website here – mitchbenn.com. and guidelines for song submission are here. Thanks to this little gem I’ve come across some old favs like Paul and Storm (who have played Dublin and were a joy to behold) and some new interests such as Jake Farr-Wharton.

You can RSVP if you’ll be there on the face book page.

The original email:
“Hi all,
I am organising a comedy night at the Laughter Lounge to fund a trek in Romania for May 2010. The trek will be over 70km in 4 days into the Bucegi Mountains. The proceeds of this trek will be going straight to the two Irish charities involved, Fighting Blindness and Diabetic Federation of Ireland.

Because of the times, the two charities have come together and organised this Trek for much needed funds due the increase in people with both conditions.
If this isn’t your cup of tea, I will be organising more fundraiser between now and March, but you can also buy a ticket and give it to someone with an interest.
