The next edition of "Mark Steel's in Town" is from Birkenhead. R4 at 6.30pm Wed. Feb 5th.

An amusing critique of various towns across the UK. He gets away with murder in what he dredges up about a place, descriptions of the locals and chunks of History etc. Usually very funny, but depends on your outlook and taste I suppose.

Well worth a listen imo.

This is a really funny show, I heard the one in Northern Ireland the other week.

He was also at Gallaghers the other week:

Thanks for putting the link up Gibbo. Yes, the Derry/Londonderry show was brilliant! As was last night's show in Southall, London. Mark Steel seems to have the knack of making people laugh at each other, their religions, race, background - you name it. If anyone else tried to make fun of Hindus, Sikhs etc. in a place as "mixed" as Southall, they'd be hanging from the nearest lampost!

I loved the anecdote about Derry airport. IIRC it has a railway line running through it and the trains have to stop when planes are landing.

One day a train was approaching as a plane was coming into land. The train didn't stop until the very last minute.

When the driver pulled into the station he asked the station manager who had priority!

Great show, very funny, especially the bit about the Recession Bar.

I don't think it will do anything to encourage tourism as it was a bit negative (The Derry and St Davids episodes weren't like that), and didn't really explain that the posh impression was directed more at West Wirral than B'Head.
