BBC Maida Vale closing

Yup, latest proposals for the Stratford site were released today:

When I was about 13 I thought it was called Made of Ale, like an edgy name they’d given it. had no idea it was just the name of a district in London.

Went there to see a 6music thing last year and the building is clearly ancient and needing repairs. It’s probably cheaper to just move to this new one than bother trying to work out how to re-do it all. I do hope they’re not turned into flats though – the amount of history in that building is incredible and deserves to be preserved somehow.
