GB moves on
  • ratnobratnob February 18
    As you may know, I have a new job from April this year:
    https://www.tes.com/news/school-news/breaking-views/hey-mr-dj-education-needs-hear-a-new-tune

    Naturally I'm putting together a farewell CD mix to say goodbye to the 200 or so staff I currently work with.
    Jon Wolfert has been amazing in the time he has given to this. The final audio contains various mixes involving chants by the singers and voice-overs by me. I won't bore you with them - but I think the students and staff at our school will love them. Instead, here are the two basic cuts:

    Keep on Coasting cut 11, plus an additional initial acappella:
    Radio One custom 1972 cut 8

    Thanks for the creativity and jingle nostalgia GB !

    A great pleasure hearing that old Radio 1 cut again - nicely done!
  • MarkSMarkS February 19
    Great jingles Geoff – love the R1 remake – thanks for posting. Good luck in your new job!!

    “When I was at school I wanted to be Noel Edmonds ... in this week’s most startling revelation"

    Jeez, at first I thought it was more "f&ke n%ws!

    Congratulations and the very best of luck with the new job - it DOES look like a "Challenge" and a half
    - will the interfering political plonkers as described on that site be regaled with endless loops of the
    JAM Song (and more) to beat them into submission?

    Will the CD be "limited edition" and become a rare "Collector's Item" ?
  • ratnobratnob February 19
    The CD will be extremely rare - I'm making 200 copies, one for each member of staff!
    There will be a 5-minute montage that I made yesterday, featuring one song from each of the 15 years since I started. That'll be posted on the school FaceBook page on the afternoon I finish (March 31).
    Oh - and here's the opening silliness that Jon W helped me to create: http://www.geoffbarton.co.uk//files/_IDs/Keep-on-Voiced.mp3.
    My v/o recorded on my phone as I don't have any real recording facilities.
    Hope you enjoy.

    Thanks for posting those fabulous cuts. Who else would take the time and effort to produce something like this. Only Jon and Jam. All the very best in your new job Geoff. Oh, and look forward to the 5 minute montage.
