doing battle with the dishes

Out of the Mouth of Virals...
Someone sent me a Steve Ballmer-like clip of a balding white man getting down to some Reggae.
But I'm really glad I followed the links back to the original YouTube clip, read the comments and beyond.
So do click on the video link and enjoy David Rodigan talking about the creation of his own dub plates at King Tubby's

So there I am, looking through the BBC website, trying to get a feel for what they might want to commission next, when I come across this promo pic for Hotel Babylon:
