If you want some selected bits from the first 2.5 hours (and some stuff from the other file posted here), you can download it from here:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/southerncounties/local_radio/

It's on the right hand side of the page. I don't know how much longer it'll be on there. Not quite the whole show, but still more of it for until we can get our hands on the program in its entirety.

I also would love it if someone had or could point me to the 3 jingles, as I have not been able to find them and its killing me listening to everyone rave on about how funny they are

Well then, R-Type (Punch it, Chewie! - I'm Max on the Widget Forum), and all others, I have got at least one of the jingles - 2-4-6-8-James May!

It's not very well edited, and not very good quality, but hey - it's something.

Edit: I've also got the Clarkson one -

I've spoken to the SCR radio team, and they are going to send me a copy of the whole show. Which I'll then be putting on the site.

Holy crap.

I cant believe a rep of BBC is actually on this site.

Thats just....weird.

Its almost like John Romero on a warez site.



That said, i cant wait for the whole show, i imagie it will be dreadfully entertaining.

What song, the one that goes "Look who's alone now, it's not me... Gotta ask yourself a question where are you now"?

James Blunt - Wiseman.

I'm going to try and put this audio up either today or tomorrow.

It will be the complete show, but with the music cut out (we aren't allowed music for copyright reasons. Feel free to blame the stupid music industry for this, as it is their fault).
