Ukulele News - 5 August 2012

It's news time again on Got A Ukulele - let's look what has been happening in the uke world this last week.

One of the best ukulele stories I have read in a long time first  - Matthew Mitcham - Olympic diver and one of the only openly gay athletes in the Olympics tells the world he plays uke.  Even better, he took his uke to the Olympics!


Want a new take on possibly one of the most over exposed songs in recent times? Go on then, just one more - actually six more


This is not the first time I've read a story about a ukulele as a weapon. What is wrong with people?
