Subject: Singaround Etiquette
From: pdcawley

If one is taking part in a singaround held in a tent and an amplified group starts up outside the tent, is it good form to go outside and remonstrate with them?

Assuming it is, is it also good form to remonstrate with them if they are being broadcast live on the BBC?

If you didn't notice the car with the honking big aerial and the bloke with the headphones and the microphone, does that change your answer to the second question?

Ho hum.

It would perhaps have been good form for the BBC to first inform those in the tent of their intentions and then no one would have been placed in a difficult situation.

If they're being broadcast live on BBC I think you should move your singaround elsewhere. It's a shame that no one noticed the aerial or knew about the broadcast ahead of time. Poor planning on somebody's part. Were you a broacaster or a singaround participant?

Ayup. Move the BBC. And APOLOGIZE to the singaround.

If your noise is disturbing someone else then the polite thing is for you to move or be quiet.

I think this is a question of a breach of "broadcasting etiquette", rather than the other way round. It wouldn't have taken much good sense on the part of someone from the BBC sound crew to check around the area they were about to broadcast from, letting people know what was going to happen and when, and an estimate of how long it was going to take.

I was trying out a newly fitted car audio at Bridgnorth and tuned in quite by chance to hear a broadcasting first.Dick Dixon eating a piece of cake and trying to answer rather asinine questions posed by the man with the mike.Test-match Special lives.

Perhaps we can have a bit more background, for a similar thing did happen to me.

Last year West Country TV did a programme from the area's pubs called Bendall At Bedtime, and this week, it was the turn of our local. The trouble was that it was set to be on our regular session night and no one had bothered to inform us.

I walked in, carrying banjo and bouzouki and was surprised to see this Ron Bendall, soundmen and lights. He appeared just as surprised that we intended to play tunes all through his show. It was even more complicated by the fact that every week a young lady from Plymouth finished the show by singing an original topical song every week and accompanied herself on guitar.

We did reach a compromise where they filmed us as we played along with the young lady's song. However, as with the Shropshire event, It would have been better for all concerned if there had been a little more communication in the first place.....

Depends on the circumstances.

I assume that this was at a festival:
1. was it an official singaround?
2. was the broadcast location agreed with the organisers

if 1=yes and 2=no then BBC move
if 1=no and 2=yes then you move
if 1 & 2 = yes then kick the promoter up the arse
if 1 and 2 = no then whoever started first should have precidence.

1 & 2.

All would have been fine if someone had stuck their nose into the tent and said words to the effect of "We're doing an OB in a couple of minutes." We'd've probably chuntered a bit then gone out to watch.

Purely and simply - yes. Go out and pull the F**ing plug out.

I live between two pubs and have learned quite a bit about noise intrusion!

PS - or borrow an amplifier or trombone and show them just how inconsiderate they were being.
