If you’re not familiar with the show it features lots of good music but also has a regular slot where you can call in with something ‘mysterious’ you’ve spotted around London and other listeners then phone in to help unravel the mystery. A couple of weeks ago they were talking about the Herbrand Street Mural which we now know all about but, at the time, this site was coming up as the number one hit in Google searches for “Herbrand Street Mural”. There was a visible ‘spike’ in the visitor numbers to this site which I then learned was from listeners trying to find stuff out. On the back of this I contacted the show, hence today’s appearance.
I’m not sure what we’ll be talking about but it’ll be interesting to attempt to convey what is quite a visual subject through a sound only medium. I’m sure we’ll touch on some classic London signs so to follow are some pictures to add to your listening experience!
