Bedlam in Babbage: Tolkien Celebration

November will be my 111th Breakfast in Babbage broadcast!

In honour of turning “eleventyone” I have decided to make this month’s theme a Tolkien inspired one.

Music from the various film and radio adaptations, as well as music inspired by Tolkien’s works, from Led Zeppelins and Blind Guardian to John Sangster and the Tolkien Ensemble, there will be music for all. Some of it you may never have heard before.

Join us Saturday afternoon for 2 hours of Tolkien inspired tunes at The Clarendon, New Babbage.

Breakfast in Babbage: 80s Movie Music

I love soundtracks. However the 80s had a huge number of songs that became hits in their own right. Huey Lewis wrote Power of Love for Back to the Future but it charted well on it's own. Kenny Loggins wrote both Footloose and Danger Zone. Irene Cara also had two major hits. And Ray Parker made the phrase Who ya Gonna Call unusable even to this day.

Join Edward Pearse as we trip down memory lane looking at movie music of the 80s.

Breakfast in Babbage: Nerds!

The Geek Shall Inherit the Earth! From a much mocked social group to the rise of geek culture, nerds have come a long way. And most of us in Babbage would probably fit the definition. Whether you're obsessed by comics books, the latest incarnation of Star Trek/Wars, or working your way through a multi-tomed epic fantasy, or whether you think doing maths for fun is a thing you're a nerd.

Thankfully being a geek or a nerd has become a lot more acceptable with the incorporation of computers into every aspect of our lives and geek media has become Big Business.

Join Edward Pearse for a look at the Music of Nerds. 2 hours of songs by, and about, the fans and their obsessions.

Breakfast in Babbage: 8th Anniversary!

OK so I'm a month late, but it's nice to celebrate an anniversary. 

For eight years Breakfast in Babbage has been delivering both great music and the odd cringe or two. Join us for a "Best Of" selection from tunes over the years. If you're looking for inspiration on what to wear, dig out your jammies and your dressing gown. Or you could always come as a bowl of cereal :-)
