Watch the entire show above, including the part Facebook chose to block.
Sadly Facebook chose to spoil our enjoyment 15 minutes before the end of the show because UMG made a copyright claim on the grounds one of the songs contained the melody/lyrics belonging to them.
Now I totally understand copyrights are to be protected but in the real world, songs will be covered. There are literally millions of covers posted on Facebook and YouTube every day and the vast majority are done for pleasure, rather than for monetization. Many musicians are often flattered to have their songs covered, knowing it will raise awareness of the original.
Facebook deals with these claims by simply blocking the videos, whereas YouTube has negotiated a deal with the music publishers to pay the small amount of advertising revenue generated by these covers to the copyright owners. and that is a win-win situation.
Compare Facebook’s sledgehammer approach with YouTube’s sensible and conciliatory method in the screenshots below.

Green Screen Woes
Three weeks ago, my new office chair arrived, late on Thursday afternoon, and it wasn’t until we were “on air” that I realised the back of it loomed rather large behind my head. In fact, someone commented that it was a posh chair for the middle of a field of poppies.
I forgot all about it until the following Thursday and had a mad scramble to find something green to disguise the chair in the ruins of Gwrych Castle. All I could find were a couple of green(ish) dusters which I secured with green electrical tape.
It did the job, albeit with very little finesse.
By Elvis Night, I had procured a length of pukka Green Screen material, which nicely covered the back of both mine and Jayne’s chairs, to make sure we didn’t end up “office chair surfing” all the way from Abergele to Memphis. 😎
