Rude Tube the Podcast series launches on iTunes!

Rude Tube was devised to celebrate the video up-load revolution that has transformed the world of entertainment in the last five years. For each programme, tens of thousands of clips are viewed and only the funniest, most extraordinary and downright weird and wonderful videos are chosen (within the bounds of TV compliance) to be included in the show. Our top fifty clips are then arranged in order of their on-line popularity as determined by the number of hits they’ve receive worldwide.

We now bring you some of the best bits from the show with our series of Podcasts, now available for your viewing pleasure on iTunes here.

Some of the clips are already established internet classics, others are hidden gems unearthed by a dedicated band of researchers. Where possible the originators of the clips are tracked down and the background story to their moment of internet celebrity is uncovered.

The show highlights new trends and phenomena as they blossom on the uncensored sites of the internet. Whether its booty shaking, video mashing (recutting classic film and TV footage to give it new and hilarious meaning), couples pranking or elaborate lip syncing, RUDE TUBE reflects the imagination and madness that represent the most dynamic and fastest changing entertainment platform on the planet

About the author

Another week and another Red Bull Bedroom Jam, this time the live feed heads down to London, for the interestingly titled 'Why Whiskey Why?'

Why Whiskey Why? sound like the evil twins from The Shining with a sad guitar, a little like Coco Rosie, but less serious and ethereal and more like they're from below the Watford Gap. The duo, consisting of Josie and Sian, describe themselves as "two girls who can't play guitar, trying to make music." After a storming set at this year’s Underage Festival their pleasant guitar playing has completely thrown that description out of the window. We and their growing legion of fans like them and we think that they are destined to become embedded in your brain, or at least in a few playlists!

Check them out live on the latest Red Bull Bedroom Jam, Thursday 23rd October live @ 7pm only at www.redbullbedroomjam.com

What is Red Bull Bedroom Jam?

Red Bull Bedroom Jam aims to give wiiings to new musical talent, of any genre, aged 19 years or younger. Every week the Red Bull Bedroom Jam panel of experts choose one band to be the focus of a LIVE webcast. Then, with the help of local young promoters, Red Bull produced marketing materials are distributed around the local area in order to raise awareness ready for show time!

How do artists or viewers get involved?
Artists and musicians can register and upload a music video or live performance at: www.redbullbedroomjam.com. Once moderated, the content appears in the ‘Watch and Rate” section of the website. Bands can then ask their mates and fans to watch the content and rate it. There is no registration process to rate tracks but there is an optional newsletter sign up so viewers can be alerted when bands are selected for LIVE performances.
