Please help us, and the Birmingham Music Archive build up a “music map” of Birmingham. We’re looking to map anything; bands, singers, musicians, promoters, managers, venues, record shops, music shops, hangouts, anything that has a “place” and that place in in Brum (or nearby).

Thanks for all your help building this.

On the show this week we asked people to help build a composite Birmingham Music Venue — one place for music with all their favourite bits of real Brum venues (still there or closed).
This is what people wanted…
What else should we add?
We mentioned it on Saturday’s show, the second [EDIT] radio show in June — that’s Saturday 13th June— as part of Birmingham Music Month — will be a Birmingham Music only special.
Our guest will be Jez from the Birmingham Music Archive and we’re going to pick our favourite Birmingham music gems. But. We’re going to turn half the show over to you — to pick your favourite brum bands and songs.
You can suggest anything you like, but we’ll not be deviating too far from the Big Paws policy of playing brand new tunes and obscure classics — so try and think of something that we and our audience might not have heard before.
