Did you know that BBC Radio turned 90 last week?
You might have missed it, on account of all the other brouhaha.
This is the commemorative 'sound collage' Damon Albarn made for broadcast across the Beeb's global network after they asked him nicely and let him have a rummage through the radio archives. There are snippets too of 21st century children airing their hopes and fears for the next 90 years.
I really like it.
The little tune he puts around the pips in the last thirty seconds is, in particular, gorgeous.
Thinking of putting this into a mix thingy along with clips from the shipping forecast, and some Eno.
