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.

ARE SALIX HOMES AND SALFORD COUNCIL INTERFERING IN HOUSING STOCK TRANSFER BALLOT?

Star date: 17th October 2014

SALIX REMOVING `NO' LEAFLETS...COUNCIL SENDING OUT LETTERS TO TENANTS...NO PUBLIC DEBATE... IS THIS A FAIR BALLOT?

In the run up to this month's ballot where tenants can vote `Yes' or `No' to the transfer of Salford Council houses to Salix Homes, a £1million campaign was launched in an effort to get people to agree to the privatisation. Now the ballot has started, Salix, in its own words, "must not try to persuade tenants to vote in any particular direction".

However, people are angry that Salix has removed `No' campaign literature from its properties, while Salford Council has sent out letters to all tenants `correcting' information put out by those opposed to the privatisation. Is this ballot fair?
