Weird moment of the day – BBC London in Brixton

Weird moment of the day

BBC London’s Jon Gaunt radio show were broadcasting from Brixton yesterday and I thought I’d take a look on my way to do some shopping. I’d expected there to be a big radio van and loads of meedja people milling about but it was most strange – I walked along a near empty arcade to find Jon Gaunt broadcasting from what looked like a cheap trestle table stuck by the side of the arcade. ‘Understated’ would be a, err, understatement. As I got closer I suddenly heard, booming out from a nearby radio, “and here comes Mike Slocombe from urban75…!”

T’was quite surreal!
