I was asked to write a poem about BBC Radio WM so here goes:
BBC Radio WM – My friend’s voice
BBC Radio WM is our local station
Broadcasting to the West Midlands for the Nation
For local news with Louise Hancock
You can’t go wrong she runs it by the clock
Three minute bulletins followed by ‘make a difference’
To the Birmingham and Black Country experience
Your local presenters we have Elise at breakfast
The first young woman to present the show at last
We’ve had Phil Upton, Les Ross, Daz Hale et al
All trying to be your Brummie Breakfast pal
At 10am we have Cazza Martin
The Family Favourite a former Radio Caroline Queen
She has the dilemma to tax your brain
And items as diverse as Boris Johnson to Metro trains
At 2pm Cazza makes way for Franksy,
Or is it Foxy the Main Man to the Maxi?
Franksy’s been on WM forever,
He’s such a big bloke and he’s sooo blooming clever!!!!
At 6 in the evening Daz takes the stage
With the football phone in, most fans in a rage!
The Villa, the Blues, the Baggies too, Saddlers and Wolves
Everyone’s in Daz’s phone queue…..
Daz is a Wolves fan, and Mike Taylor, the Villa…
Not sure who Henry Liston supports as he’s such a young fella?
Straight outta Birmingham University I’m yer man
The Birmingham poet, Brummie Bard, avid listener to WM!
The greatest station in Birmingham, not forgetting the Black Country
Which was Black by day and glowed red by night!
The greatest region in the country….that’s awroight!!!!
