Tweet from @Sebastien_buemi: Having a nice relaxing day at home!
I wonder if he will tune in to Giggles Radio.
Forgive me rambling, we are testing bits and pieces. If you want a shoutout, let me know!
Comment from Giggles: So it's possible that I'm live somewhere...
A prize for whoever finds him first!!

How about a joke? Why did the chicken cross the park?
Comment from Mr C: why did the chicken cross the park, fbfb?
To get to the other slide!!
CAN'T TOUCH THIS!
It may or may not be hammer time.
Giggles Radio Test is go!
SONG: Blue Diamonds by The Long Winters.
The Long Winters are John Roderick (singer/guitarist) and Eric Corson (bass and harmony vocals).
They have no less than eleven former members.
SONG: At the Indie Disco by The Divine Comedy.
Did you know the Divine Comedy is classed as chamber pop - which is the style of crossing classical music with more popular rock and roll styles.
SONG: God's Gonna Cut You Down by Johnny Cash.
This song has been used in popular culture a lot. As Giggles said, in the trailer for True Grit, and in ads for Jeep Cherokee. Apparently it was also used in a promo feature for Eastenders.
SONG: Run On by Moby.
God's Gonna Cut You Down is an Olde Folk Song, and is also known as Run On and Run On for a Long Time.
If you're a Moby fan, an update on his journal will cheer you up: "ok, ta-da, official next album announcement update. my next album is called 'destroyed' and it comes out in the middle of may sometime"
SONG: Little Ramona (Gone Hillbilly Nuts) by BR5-49
Of all the times a hyphen would be acceptable in a url.
BR5-49 are from Nashville, Tennessee, which you might be able to tell from their awesome accents.
SONG: Constellations by Darwin Deez.
Giggles is keen to point out that despite the impression the album cover may give you, Darwin is from Bang-Up-to-Date-Land.
Darwin is on tour in the UK at the moment, so if you like what you're hearing you may be able to catch him somewhere near you.
SONG: Carol Brown by Flight of the Conchords.
The band provide lyrics and guitar chords for selected songs too which is pretty fabulous: http://flightoftheconchords.co.nz/chords-lyrics/
Flight of the Conchords even have their own Twitter hashtag, not surprisingly #fotc
SONG: Where Do You Go To (My Lovely) by Peter Sarstedt.
This song was number one in the UK in 1969, topping the charts for four weeks.
Right Said Fred covered this song, but it only charted in Germany and Austria... and not very high up either.
Comment from Giggles: Oh I forgot an extra fact about this song... It co won the Ivor Novello award... With Space Oddity... Almost like a handing over of the baton in 1969...
