Show a user-created static block on a page (1column.phtml)

I have a list that I want to show on every page that uses the “1column.phtml” skeleton layout.
How do I go about making it a block (doesn’t have to be CMS-editable, but that’d be okay) and show it on that page?

I’ve tried creating page/html/rightlist.phtml, which contains the list,
added

<block type="core/text_list" name="rightlist" as="rightlist" template="page/html/rightlist.phtml"/>
to page.xml (right after the “before_body_end” block),
and in 1column.phtml i’m calling
<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('rightlist'?>

But it’s not showing up at all.

Can someone show me how to do this? with a cms block, maybe?
