164: Bay To Birdwood and Beyond
October 12, 2016 Steve Davis

The Bay To Birdwood and Beyond is a fitting title for a show all about the motor car and our roads. The motor car is one of those things many of us have a love/hate relationship with. There are times we love their convenience and power and the freedom they symbolise. At other times we hate the pollution, the traffic congestion and those hot days as we scald ourselves on seatbelt buckles. But no matter your position, one thing is very true: The car is entwined deeply in all our lives, forging the black latticework of asphalt that our towns and houses are wedged between, to the rite of passage many of us strive for, of getting our driver's licence. Our national motor museum is in Birdwood and tonight, to help us take a few stories for a spin, we have the director of the Naitonal Motor Museum, Paul Rees, and chair of the Bay To Birdwood, Michael Neale. We also meet Paul and Sandra Murrell, who were judges at the Bay To Birdwood again this year. We discuss First car and car memories How old cars don't mix well with new ones Dark motoring The volunteer base of the Bay To Birdwood The surrounding events, such as roadside picnics Also appearing in the bay to birdword and beyond episode We hear about Uber Eats In the musical pilgrimage, we hit the open roads The SA Drink Of The Week is a Kersbrook Hills In IS IT NEWS, Nigel tests us on And please consider becoming part of our podcast by joining our Inner Circle.
