So I used Twitter to announce the show is recording live, and bingo - live audience up by 20%, so lets keep the curve on the upward trend... you can follow us on Twitter: sonicnick As well as the folks in the live chatroom this week PJ Tracy - Emmy winning composer and ace player beams in from Minneapolis, where he has us Brits trumped on the cold weather, and also Dave Spiers from GForce Software from the wilds of Reading, UK where he masterminds the international virtual instrument empire. Our first moments are spent marveling in the wonders of Ad Jingles and their creation, with blasts from John Parr and Jonathan Hodge, then we discuss the recently announced Moog Taurus pedals reissue. Then a quote from Blixa Bergfeld on Disquiet gets us onto the topic of originality, then we talk about Raysgigs.com - a site where Ray Morrissey lists over 5000 gigs he has attended and made notes on many occasions - a real goldmine of information and impressions. And thats it for this week. Remember... Join Us Live!

And who (of a certain age in the UK) can forget Lord David Dundas Brutus Ad?

he ended up doing the channel 4 ident in the early days and no doubt now sits in a castle somewhere counting his cash
