Apparently ukulele won the debate on uke vs recorder as best instrument to teach kids. They did a segment with Jake on the instrument. I'm sure James Hill's tweets had something to do with that!

I heard the interview with Jake.
Q radio has had ( to put it mildly ) some fall-out after the firing of its previous announcer and they are changing interviewers frequently.
I thought yesterdays was gushing to the point of embarrassment ..........Jake had to struggle with some insipid questions.
He did the best he could and was gracious; I don't know if she wrote her own questions but 8yr olds could have done better.
On an aside, CBC radio does a radio show called "Vinyl tap" hosted by Randy Bachman and has said he would do one devoted to 'ukulele.
Should be interesting.
