Frank Skinner’s Formby documentary on iPlayer.

Videos: ‘Ukulele’ must be some sort of sex-pun in Thai. What’s playing on the Uke Box?, Adam Sandler’s Mixed Nuts. I’m reconsidering putting up lists of the most watched ukulele videos each month, this month’s were pretty unwatchable.

London’s highly popular ukulele jam night Ukulele Wednesdays is heading up north. If you’re in the Manchester area in December and are up for a free jam sign up to the Ukulele Wednesdays – Manchester Facebook.

New Releases: Lil Rev’s The Happiest Way to Be Sad, A Very She & Him Christmas, The Crazed Mugs’ Find Forbidden Island, Craig Robertson is rereleasing the ukulele classic Practical Hypnotism, Ukeristic Congress

Kickstarting: The Vespers (if you’re reading this on Friday you can watch them play live at a very precise 8:57pm CST).
