#730: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! The new series of The Infinite Monkey Cage returns to BBC Radio 4 next Monday 7th July replete with a new theme song voiced by none other than Eric Idle, with all instrumentation [including ukulele] and production by Eric's long time pal Jeff Lynne. The collaboration, hinted at by Eric earlier this year on Twitter, is very much in the tradition of George Formby and an amusing video featuring a puppet incarnation of Eric is available to view either via the BBC Radio 4 web site or You Tube channel thus:

Many thanx to my good friend Tony Callaghan over in Dublin for alerting ELOBF to this!

Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 02-July-2014
