More details here…


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.

A Salford Star Exclusive

73 YEAR OLD LIVING ON SANDWICHES...TENANTS' FLATS LOOK LIKE `HAND GRENADE HAS GONE OFF'...EVEN HOUSING CHIEF `SHOCKED' AND `DISTURBED'...

Pendleton Together and Keepmoat, the two companies at the centre of the £650million PFI project to `make things better' today apologised to tenants stuck in horrendous conditions during the refurbishment of Whitebeam Court.

Over the weekend, residents told the Salford Star that "there's no regard for people living on this building site". One 73 year old has been living on sandwiches since his cooker was disconnected weeks ago. He had also been left without hot water for two weeks. Another resident said that workmen left his flat "like a hand grenade had gone off...it's just chaos."

In Salford, over forty per cent of women working part time earn less than the Living Wage of £7.45 per hour – this despite Salford being lauded for becoming a `Living Wage City'.

"In-work poverty is growing throughout the North West and it's often women that bear the brunt of low pay" says North West TUC Regional Secretary Lynn Collins.
