So, It’s IWD tomorrow and the theme is #ChooseToChallenge. Well, I’m choosing to challenge the norm and not getting involved with anything on the day.

Have I posted this? Never mind worth the second post…
The BBC Radiophonic Workshop, one of the sound effects units of the BBC, was created in 1958 to produce effects and new music for radio, and was closed in March 1998. Daphne Oram was a true pioneer of electronic music and this great gallery of photographs gives some great insight into the work being done at BBC.
