Will he dare play it after last Sunday's mini "tuba festival" (http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows/davies/thisweek.shtml)?

Well, I guess no one else heard it, but he did!  AND he gave the first ever on-air plug to the upcoming CD.   You can still hear it, of course, via the BBC's Listen Again facility until next Sunday.  He played two tracks featuring HM, of which MOTR was the second (following Max Bygraves, an artist I have unaccountably never been paired with before), starting about ten minutes or so into the programme.

The Guardian has at long last got around to publising his obituary (http://www.guardian.co.uk/obituaries/story/0,,2192516,00.html).
