Just passing this on ... :) (saw them live last week - fabulous!)

"I'm writing to you with news of the LongMan Records campaign to make Britain a better place by getting the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain into the charts and onto Top of the Pops!!   

As you may have heard last Monday (the 31st) was designated "Ukulele Monday" to mark the launch of the UKOGB's first ever single - an unbelievable cover of "Miss Dy-na-mi-tee". The day was celebrated on the radio up and down the UK and most notably by Johnny Walker on BBC Radio 2. The lead up included appearances on Jools Holland's "Hootananny", ITV's "This Morning" and airplay on BBC Radio 1.

And what a week its been! Longman Records
are small and the industry is big! - which in England can make life very tricky. But we believe that people power and the appeal of the UKOGB will triumph. And we really are having an impact - it is highly likely that the single will chart this week...

So we need your help: Please buy the single before Friday this week!!   It's available in all Virgin stores UK wide (and we encourage persistence if you're told otherwise in any store) - or online from hmv.co.uk (click here) or www.amazon.co.uk ("search" for ukulele+popular music). Both count for the UK charts. Even overseas can help here.

Is "Smells Like Teen Spirit" on the single as I saw them do it on Jools Holland Show and it was inspired.

Regards.
