Geoff Rowley on FOS FM tomorrow morning

Geoff Rowley is this week’s guest on Mark Foster’s Fos FM show in California tonight at 9pm in the US, 5am tomorrow morning in the UK. The Brits abroad will be spinning what will probably involve a healthy dose of rock and roll and much more on kchungradio.org. All of these shows are archived so if you don’t run a farm or live like Dracula (or Zorlac) then you can find the full session on www.fosfm.com where you can find other shows with the pro’s and the ho’s.

Grab a bunch of Rowley’s moments in the meantime.

Save BaySixty6 Campaign on BBC Radio

The on-going fight to keep Bay 66 under the Westway has hit the airwaves as Gaby Roslin and Paul Ross interviewed Chris Bailey of the Westway Development Trust on Monday’s Breakfast Show on BBC London.

The interview is primarily concerned with the location of the park, which as the BBC reporter points out, appears to have already been decided by the Westway Development Trust looks set to change as office space and gardening centres are likely to be more profitable.

It’s good to see that both Gaby and Paul challenge Chris’ statements with both the social and cultural significance of the park’s current location, backing this up with words from a 9 year old local skateboarder called Alex. As we know, the current location of Baysixty6 is where thousands of young people across the UK are accustomed to going to on a regular basis throughout the year. To change the location of one of country’s most important skateparks would have gross consequences to the scene no matter what.

It remains up to us skateboarders to let our voices and opinions be heard and convince those planning on relocating or closing the park that it is in the best interest of the city of London to let this cultural institution stay where it is.

To listen to the show, follow this link and skip ahead to the 2:16:20 mark to get straight into the discussion.
