16 years in the making, the documentary of the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain in Japan has arrived (half an hour long).

If you’re looking for some uke music on Boxing Day, Resonance are broadcasting four hours’ worth of performances from the Wukulele Festival including Sophie Madeleine, The Re-entrants, The Bobby McGee’s and an unmissable set from Bob Brozman. It starts at 8pm (GMT) and you can stream it on their website (or listen on 104.4FM if you’re in London). And take a listen to the Uke Hunt Christmas podcast if you haven’t yet.

The Melbourne Ukulele Festival has grown to encompass a whole week (25th of February till Tuesday the 1st of March, 2011) and a number of cities. The program includes The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra, Bosco and Honey and Shelley O’Brien

Ken Middleton has a new ebook out, 12 Hymn Tunes for Ukulele, which you can buy on his website.

Google have invested $600,000 in Miso Media (who made the miSonata app with KoAloha).

Corktown Ukulele Jam mix up ukes and strings for the Hallelujah Chorus.

Holland Greco (who opened the first Uke Hunt podcast) has a uke cover of Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance on the Frank Zappa birthday album.

UPDATE: Must be the season for books. Lil Rev has just sent me info on his latest book 101 Ukulele Licks (PDF link).
