Original YT playout date: 25 September 2008
Iain Lee only ever did one show at playradio, aired on 18th August 2008, with his unique controversial brand of humour. It says this is blocked worldwide, although I can actually see it, don’t know if you can.
I have had it confirmed today that nobody can see this version on YouTube, as it seems that even with the availability of revenue sharing and the fact that labels are more likely to sell a record when further generations get to hear a piece, their music is more valuable than all the voice talents in the piece, a view I disagree with, and expecially so as Playradio UK paid a handsome fee to license this content for these shows which were viewed at the time by only a fraction of those for the level of license that was paid.
So I have no moral qualms about putting it up here. Don’t ask for any revenue share, you had it already, and you had your chance for more before you blocked it on YT. If you don’t like that you can write to my hosts in Tuvalu and see how far you get.
And my thanks go to Ian Stewart for requesting the video, which gave me the nudge to dig it out and blow the dust off my decaying skills by working out how to put that on here.
