Closedown

Your local independent radio station is on the air *now*

TV Cream Towers is shutting its doors for good. Yup, this blog is embarking on its second move in just over six months, which will no doubt result in even more blogrolls and favourites’ lists becoming out-of-date.

From everyone here in the presentation suite...

It’s not quite the same as the last move, though. This time it’s less an eviction, more an amalgamation. TV Cream Towers is finally moving into its spiritual home: the TV Cream website itself. More precisely, the brand new TV Cream website, which is looking perilously like nearing completion.

You’ll find this blog, replete with its entire archive (from both Blogger and WordPress incarnations) sitting at the top of the front page. Hope to see you over there. Meanwhile there’s just time to look at tomorrow night’s programmes, were this 19 and a half years and a fair few less ugly confrontations with the demands of growing up and the real world ago:

At 9pm, a brand new sketch comedy show...

For now, at least, goodbye.

...and thanks, as ever, for your company.

    Bloody hell, guys… that new site of yours looks the dog’s bollocks (if you’ll excuse my language). So THAT’s what you’ve all been ferreting away at! All I can say is congratulations – can’t wait for the official launch! :)

    When is the official launch exactly?

  3. TV Cream says:

    Thanks Chris. As for the official launch, as Frank Bough would say, the situation is…a developing situation. The whole A-Z will be there by the end of the month. Other features will probably take a bit longer; there’s some new stuff coming as well. A safe bet to say is…the summer.

    What can I say? The new site certainly looks swanky with plenty of bells and whistles, but isn’t it almost against the ethos of TV Cream to have such gimmickry on display?

    I always found the black background and yellow text bold yet unfussy in a mid-80s BBC2 closing credit sequence kind of way. It looked like something knocked up on a ZX Spectrum – substance over style, if you like.

    All this said, as long as the Assignments, Look-in and Extras find their way onto the new site and don’t become lost in a Byzantine web of submenus, I’m willing to give it a go. In fact, find me a video of the Make Room For the Mushrooms advert and we’ll call it quits.
