Issue 3 of Salford Media Scene is `Salford suss in sounds, sights and nights' and includes everything that's moving in the city's media scene with a community slant.

You'll find a four page feature on the top artist in Salford, Jo Carlon, aka Salford Artist; interviews with Steve Evets, just back from a cameo in Pirates of the Caribbean, and Andy Whyment, who plays Kirk in Corrie. Plus Media City Madness, a six page piece on `arts cuts and Quays capers', and Where's All Our Cinemas Gone? – Salford has one cinema for over 250,000 people!

There's features on theatre, film, ale art, a new video production company called Pink Grapefruit, a radio production company called Twisted Ear, and people who dress up as Tudors and hang around schools.

You'll find music reviews and interviews with Misfit Music, Original Headits, Vinnie Peculiar, Trojan Horse, Class Actions and the amazing track Media City Ditty… "``Media City you're so shitty' starts the song, which goes on to suggest bribery, hypocrisy and nepotism… `Status can be got with your knickers down' the punkish, jazzy vocalist sings" writes the reviewer.

Never mind Media City, how about Higher Broughtonwood where all the best dramas are happening? And did you know there was a secret bar in Salford that's incredibly famous?

All is revealed in Salford Media Scene…

Available from all good community outlets including Langworthy Cornerstone, Seedley Pets on Langworthy Road, Ordsall Community Café, shops along Littleton Road in Lower Kersal, St Seb's Community Centre in Charlestown, the Star Inn in Broughton and loads more.

As a red i would like to congratulate the blues for having the moral courage to ask Mr Cook to resign after sending his disgracveful e mail. Its just a real shame and slur on Salford that the NWDAs board member Mr John Merry didnt have the same courage when it was reported on this site that his CeO sent an equally disgusting email. Shame on Mr Merry for this lack of moral courage and thanks to the Star for bringing it to light. Im a red but lets celebrate whichever team brings the championship back to manchester and if it happens to be City at least Cook wont be there to sully their achievements. Good riddance to bad rubbish and its just a shame the same ethics dont apply amongst the higher echelons of our civil service thanks to people like Merry.

SALFORD PEOPLE UNANIMOUSLY IGNORED BY SCRUTINY COUNCILLORS AS £4.4MILLION CUTS GET GO AHEAD

"It's gobsmacking and you would really question your faith in Salford City Council's political system today" Steve North, Salford City UNISON

There was fury yesterday as six councillors sitting on Salford Council's Budget Scrutiny Committee unanimously voted to reject a `call in' to reconsider over £4million of cuts to services for vulnerable people in the city.

The call in was brought by three Labour councillors, who, backed by service users, argued against the cuts on both financial, safety and moral grounds. But UNISON's Steve North said afterwards, "We put our faith in the democratic process, were patronised and then told unanimously that we needn't have bothered."

SALFORD COUNCIL BLACKLEACH COUNTRY PARK SELL OFF HORROR

Star date: 23rd July 2014

SALFORD COUNCIL UNDERHAND SALE OF OPEN SPACE LAND CLAIM WALKDEN RESIDENTS

Walkden residents are up in arms against Salford Council's proposed sell off of land at Hill Top Moss, part of Blackleach Country Park, after they were given just two weeks to object to a statutory notice of intent – when Council agents had been in discussions for two years with developer Redwaters.

Redwaters wants to put up dozens of houses on the green open space land that's classified as a wildlife corridor, and now the residents of Hill Top are accusing Salford Council and Deputy Mayor David Lancaster of underhand practices, while hundreds of people have signed petitions against the sell off.

OASIS ACADEMY MEDIACITYUK SALFORD SLATED BY OFSTED

Star date: 22nd July 2014

CONTROVERSIAL OASIS ACADEMY INADEQUATE AND PUT IN SPECIAL MEASURES

Oasis Academy MediaCityUK has been absolutely slated by Ofsted which ruled it `inadequate' on every scale that it has… `Achievement of Pupils', `Quality of Teaching'; `Behaviour and Safety of Pupils', and `Leadership and Management'.

The controversial Academy, hailed as a `flagship' for Salford,  was at the centre of a riot a few years ago as pupils objected to the mass sacking of teachers half way through exam courses.
