fighting on the beaches

Adrian Goldberg, out of The Stirrer, has done a piece for Radio 4’s You and Yours all about the fight betwixt the council and the bullring over the two (count ’em) fake beaches we’ll be getting in Brum this summer. It seems to have been treated as a bit of light relief from the Radio 4 lot – but raises a fine point about how it’ll look when we get the inevitable downpours (building site anyone?).

Good to hear some Brummie voices on the radio, although Rich Batsford’s falsetto Beach Boys cover wasn’t as welcome as his amusing comments – the most disturbing part was hearing Council Leader Mike Whitby using the phrase ‘chill out’ on a couple of occasions. Cool Maaan.

You’ll find a ‘Listen Again’ link here soon enough – it’s about 40 mins into the programme.
