56 - Blake is Late and the Bird Swoops In

Episode 56 of the Red Mountain Express is live and available now for your listening pleasure.  Check it out to hear our take on news stories and upcoming events around the Birmingham area!  Also, Blake was late to our recording session so, if you know him and can contact him, don't let him live it down for a few days!

In this week's episode Patrick, Matthew and Blake discuss opening weekend football scores for our favorite state teams, Alabama Power's purchase of some downtown property, UAB's purchase of more property in the Avondale area, another article concerning Birmingham's potential reputation as an up and coming tech hub, the grand opening of The Woolworth, Ben Vaughn's new pizzeria in Five Points South, and the arrival of Bird Scooters (and the ensuing drama).

Stick around for the second half of the show where we showcase some upcoming events as reported by Russell and Amber Hooks from Happenins In The Ham!  More details as well as links and maps and far more events can be found on their website!
