Glee – Meet The Kids Behind The Paywall

It’s been announced that the next (third) series of US hit show Glee will be moving from it’s current home of E4 to one of BSkyB’s pay channels.

It is owned by her company Noble & Brite Ltd. but still distributed by EMI. An odd decision to many, but considering the two aforementioned albums rarely

George Webley, known to most as ‘Big George’, sadly passed away on Saturday May 7th at his family home, aged 53. As well as a long career in music as composer and session player, George also became a successful radio broadcaster. He was the presenter of the late night show (2.00 – 6.00 am) on BBC London 94.9 for the last five years.
