Hi and welcome to Fridays BGL. It’s Joe from Leeds Trinity manning the decks.
A Leeds car park has been hailed as ‘the most cheerful car park in Britain’. The managers of Westgate Car Park on Castle St display jokes on the wall and even hand out sweets!
A picture of the proposed Asda to be built in Wetherby has been released, dividing residents of the town.
Leeds lad Chris Moyles has just finished his final breakfast show for Radio 1 today. He’s often divided opinion over the years but there’s no doubt he’s been hugely successful. Will you be mourning his passing or bidding him good riddance?
Are you a budding radio DJ? Do you dream of presenting the breakfast show? South Leeds Community Radio are offering an introduction to radio production and techniques.
There’s also a round-up of what’s happening in Holbeck, Beeston, Cottingley, Hunslet, Belle Isle and Middleton on South Leeds Life.
The Yorkshire Post reports that a catholic adoption agency in West Yorkshire has launched legal action for the right to deny its services to gay couples. Do you agree with this action? Let us know in the comments.
The YEP reports on the rising number of people seeking help from a Leeds suicide prevention charity
Local video artist Tim Ineaux is starting YourTubes at White Cloth Galery from next Friday (21st); this eclectic evening out is a combination of music & video where the audience can control what people see. It’s worth checking out.
And finally, Leeds online have some great articles at the moment including a celebration of OK Comics (where certain BGL staffers spend quite a bit of time), improvements to one of Leeds’s most congested commuter roads and a report on the Chris Nickson novel set in 1730s Leeds. The launch of “Come the Fear” (the fourth book in the series) is tonight at Arts@Trinity from 7:30 – Leeds Book Club has the skinny – and BGL will be there. Come along!
That’s all for today. Naziya will be with you on Monday, thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend!
