MC Iain Graham and the story behind the mobile phone rap

Mark Bridge writes:

The final news story in this week’s podcast is best described as an update from last week’s programme. The story itself remains the same but the presentation style has been changed dramatically.

It was inspired by Iain’s casual suggestion that the report needed some background music. A little editing, a looped drum track, the inevitable cowbell... and news about Snoop Dogg’s 4G advertising quickly became a dysfunctional rap (with apologies to Mr Dogg and the wider rapping community).

You’ll find Iain’s performance in this week’s podcast (8th March 2011) after around 21 minutes. If you’ve not already heard it, you can listen online or download the MP3 here.

Incidentally, Iain is also a traditional master of ceremonies - which means dubbing him MC Iain Graham is entirely appropriate!
