Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s apocalypse novel ‘Good Omens’ is being adapted into a BBC Radio drama
The end of the world is coming soon…to radio. The BBC announced today that it has begun production on an audio drama adaptation of Good Omens, the hit 1990 comedic fantasy novel about the apocalypse from celebrated authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Both authors are onboard to help develop the miniseries, which has already begun recording in a secret location in London, for a scheduled airing on BBC Radio 4 sometime in December. It will span five half-hour-long episodes and one hour-long finale.
Dirk Maggis is directing, a natural choice given he was also the director of the BBC’s well-received radio adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere last year. The BBC also released a full voice cast list for Good Omens today, noting that…
Rdio, the best music-streaming service that (statistically) you’re not using, is unveiling a smart redesign Thursday morning aimed at helping you discover new music faster. Free users will see the web and mobile apps place near-total emphasis on Rdio’s ad-supported radio stations, including more than 60 programmed by new human curators, while seeing fewer pleas to upgrade to the premium version. And all users will have access to the service’s useful new “Home” feed, which offers Facebook-like stories about trending and notable artists, songs, and albums. (It’s rolling out to users over the next couple of weeks.)

During a Detroit radio broadcast yesterday, a man claiming to be Snyder phoned in to put a stop to the mockery, and SlashFilm claims that it was indeed the Man of Steel director.
Even though Aquaman has a long history of being made the butt of the joke, Snyder took umbrage to what he saw as unfair treatment:
I don’t want to give anything away about the movie or anything like that but Aquaman has some cool abilities. People are like, “Oh what? Does he talk to animals? Cause that seems like what he does. Or fish?” The cool thing with Aquaman is his Trident….
Word of Mouth: London Coffee Shops: Our tour of the English capital’s finest places to grab a cup of Joe, from bike shops to DIY radio stations

Given how dominant YouTube is as a place for young people to listen to music, it’s notable how slow Google has been to embrace radio partnerships. But the company is announcing an interesting move in that direction tonight: it’s launching a weekly radio show on Sirius XM Hits 1, the satellite radio service’s top station for pop music. “The YouTube 15,” which will be hosted by YouTube personality Jenna Marbles, will air on Fridays starting July 11th at 6 PM ET, and replay throughout the weekend.
