Towel Day May 25th

Some of you might have noticed a little ditty called "So Long And Thanks For All The Fish" by Neil Hannon started playing today. Some of the more quizzical of you might have wondered "should I be making a reservation for Milliways soon?" Has the "Big Bang Burger Bar" stopped taking orders?

I think I'll leave it up to Wikipedia to give you the definition;

Towel Day

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-bogglingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

Hey everyone!

Well this is going to be a first all round this weekend. The first time we're setting down into a real website, with real content. And, we're kicking off our very first Fund Drive.

Some of you have no doubt been wondering how we've managed to build a premium internet radio station, running 24 hours a day, with no advertising. Well, we've been fortunate enough to have some philanthropic donors that have covered our expenses until recently. It's allowed us to build a great collection of music, and programming, all the while not having to worry about how we're going to pay for everything. Well, as these things go, our care-free money days have come to an end.

Big Blue Swing's new home!

Welcome to Big Blue Swing's new home!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out our new digs. We figured after five years of concentrating on the music, it was time to stop relying on MySpace for our website. Yes, yes, the rest of the world decided long ago to stop relying on MySpace. Like I said, we've been concentrating on the music, and maybe not paying enough attention to other things.
