As you probably know I broadcast for BCB, from Bradford, a district of great variety.
And of great beauty, not just on the hills and moors but also inÂ the valleys and towns.
Here are a couple of very different blogs and a photo gallery,Â from and about Bradford.
Irna grew up in Bradford, after her mother moved here from Pakistan. I first met her when she did the best programme on the fledgling Bradford Festival Radio, a predecessor of BCB http://bollywoodinbritain.wordpress.com/
I’ve known the Man from Bradistan since he were a lad, coming into the record shop to learn about reggae. Now he does a daily blog from Bradistan and other locations www.talesfrombradistan.blogspot.com
For some reason I keep going back to this page, grim though the photo is http://talesfrombradistan.blogspot.com/search/label/Rob%20Walsh
Tim Smith is one of the best photographers I know. He doesn’t mess about, you hardly know he’s there, and he turns in classic shots every time. Here are some www.timsmithphotos.com/
