Londonist Out Loud is presented and produced by N Quentin Woolf. In the studio with him this week:
- Tom Bolton, author of London's Lost Rivers, a Walker's Guide
- Eoin Quiery of London band Burning Wheel
The guests discuss recent London news including the rebranding of London neighbourhoods (NoGo, Midtown et al.), the rewriting of laws to prevent ambush marketing at the Olympics, private security, magic wands in Parliament and bull's semen on a Tube train, the Thames cable car, lost rivers, boundary changes, the Brixton Pound and quirky London maps.
Eoin plays a ballad about one of his favourite characters on the London Underground. He then goes on to set Victorian poem London Misnomers to music.
