Purchased from the Barbican shop, London.
Please, someone with the required skills cover this on the ukulele and the casio sa5.
Just a short post to show off my new badges I received the other day. You can purchase them, if you’re into badges, on etsy. I like the middle one.

Neat photo hey? Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords and the Wellington ukulele orchestra, has written a few songs for the latest Muppets Movie, staring Jason Segel, Amy Adams and a load of Muppets. Jason Segel, who starred in, wrote the script and also the songs for the film, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, has also written the script for the Muppets 2011 film. Forgetting Sarah Marshall was bit of a gem. It had some great humorous songs in it (Inside of You, Dracula’s Lament), a good script and a lot of warmth. I have no idea if there’s a ukulele in the film, but I suspect the Muppets, especially with Bret providing some songs, to be good fun even if there isn’t.
Ahoy fellow ukulele lovers. If you’ve not heard of Luxuriamusic.com, it’s a great eclectic Internet radio station. Rockabilly, jazz, easy listening and also the home of Howie Pyro’s brilliant show Intoxica, surely one of the best things on the radio. Anyway, New Years Eve, the Internet radio was on Luxuria as I was getting ready to go out and I kept hearing lots of ukulele songs. Turned out it was The Ian Whitcomb show. Ian Whitcomb had a US hit in the sixties, he’s an author and also, amongst other things, a ukulele connoisseur.
I’ve only listened to a couple of the shows but there’s a feast of ukuleles on there and I intend to make my way through the archives as soon as I get some free time. You can subscribe to the podcast through iTunes, listen online every Saturday evening, or download them at the podcast archive page.
