More fun from Radio and Music Interactive…

Those of you in the UK today may have stumbled upon Radio 1’s Ten Hour Takeover – in which members of the listening public got to choose which songs were played – only using the magic telecommunicative power of text messaging. What you might not know is that this was another BBC Radio and Music Interactive enterprise! Better still, some of the creative parties involved have been able to write up some of the technology and experience on their weblogs – Matt Biddulph (head of our architecture team) has written up his exhaustive and open thoughts on the design and implementation of the project in a piece called Moyles-proof code over on hackdiary. And Dan Hill’s also posted his thoughts about the project in a post called Takeover Radio. More satisfying still is that conversation around the even has even started to creep over the rest of webloggia – with David from Fuddland posting about his experience of the day (10 Hour Takeover). I was listening to the radio at exactly the same time as David and was equally impressed at the quality of the selections – although I’m not convinced that the person in the car next to us at the traffic lights near Bluebell Lane in Norwich was as delighted by Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” as I was.

I should repeat that it had absolutely nothing to do with me directly. Matt B had some interactions with my other half Mr Webb, but generally it’s been kept well away from my eyes until the last minute. I’m too busy working on something much less glamourous, which I hope will have its own utility…
