Blues and ragtime, recorded in Austria, featuring that country's national blues guitar legend. He had the idea of recording this album. The concept was to re-produce the atmosphere of a black radio show during pre-war days in the south. He sounds pretty strange when imitating a black radio dj.

In the mid 1950s Birmingham's City Engineer, Herbert Manzoni, embarked on one of the most ambitious and radical building projects the city had experienced since the tumult of the industrial revolution. In the decade that followed, Manzoni and his team of architects and builders transformed the centre of Birmingham from a bastion of Victorian elegance and civic pride into a thoroughly modern metropolis, equipped to deal with the very real challenges of the 20th Century. In the process Manzoni picked up the gauntlet of housing Birmingham's citizens in homes 'fit for heroes' and set about eradicating remnants of the notorious 'back-to-back' houses and yards that blighted the life of the city's poorest. Using a selection of films preserved at the Media Archive for Central England, Mike Mason charts the progress of this seemingly impossible mission and acknowledges the spirit and intentions of this noble, and necessary, project that was to become the focus of so much negativity in the closing decades of the last millennium. Regenerating Birmingham includes a series of films made at the time by the city's Public Works Department as well as regional news reports from Associated Television. Expert opinion is provided by well-known Birmingham historian, Carl Chinn MBE, chair of Community History at the University of Birmingham. The DVD also includes a short film, 'About MACE', a behind the scenes look at the work of MACE and the services they provide.ISC CONTENTS: 1. Prologue 2. Birmingham as it was 3. Housing Problems 4.

...(The Best days of the 90s) I remember my first time ever going to Birmingham at the young age of 21 back in 1991. Me and some mates would travel from Telford / Shropshire to Birmigham sometimes on a Friday or Saturday.

...Some time ago I won a lip gloss in the news Of The World Sunday Magazine. It was Beauty UK Plump and Pout Gloss. The shade I got was No2 Rouge, which is a lovely mid pink colour. The bottle is clear and slightly curvy. It has the Beauty UK logo on it and the words Plump and Pout Gloss contains maxi lip. I'm not really sure what maxi lip is but I assume its something to do with the plumping part...
