I have a function that does what I want, I just find it hard to
believe that there isn't something better. So any pointers would be
greatly appreciated.

function convertDatetime($value){
	$value=explode(" ", $value);
	$value=explode("-", $value[0]);
	$y=$value[0];
	$m=$value[1];
	$d=$value[2];
	switch($m){
		case '01':
			$m='January';
			break;
		case '02':
			$m='February';
			break;
		case '03':
			$m='March';
			break;
		case '04':
			$m='April';
			break;
		case '05':
			$m='May';
			break;
		case '06':
			$m='June';
			break;
		case '07':
			$m='July';
			break;
		case '08':
			$m='August';
			break;
		case '09':
			$m='September';
			break;
		case '10':
			$m='October';
			break;
		case '11':
			$m='November';
			break;
		case '12':
			$m='December';
			break;
		}
	$dt=$m.' '.$d.', '.$y;
	$value=$dt;
	return $value;
	}
