means it has become a welcome addition to Edinburgh’s clubscene.

I Lager Winner Another List and another winner. This issue‘s lucky recipient of a crate of Bohemia Mexican beer is Alison Browne of Napiershall Street. Glasgow who reviewed Glasgow's Chopper Club at Club Xchange.
‘Fight your way to the bar. elbow your way to a table. incur some serious bad feeling on the way to the danceﬂoor and by that time the records over . .. Chopper's music policy is like that of virtually every other student union in the country. playing indie. quite obvious dance tracks and kitsch stuff from the charts. but the atmosphere is more like a proper club and anyway you haven't been in the building all day! Much more fun than staying home and watching Coronation Street.‘ While the Coronation Street comment is a bit suspect (especially when it‘son at 7.30pm and Chopper doesn't open until 1 lprn) this is exactly the thing that can earn you a crate oflager. All you need to do is tell us in about 50 words about a recent club you have visited. making sure all entries reach The List, 14 High Street. Edinburgh. Elli lTF. by 180a. Remember. mark all envelopes ‘Bohemia Beer Competition”.
I Dance FM Following the recent changes to the Broadcasting Act. Edinburgh based Mayday Communications have applied to operate a 24—hour FM dance music station front the city. The aim ofthe station isto highlight the burgeoning underground music scene spotlighting Hardcore House. Reggae. Soul and Jazz. Combining this with the usual phone-ins. chat shows and news and reviews they hope to reach a potential audience of 750.000. It may sound ambitious and so it is but surely a city of Edinburgh‘s size deserves an alternative to network radio. Everyone has a chance to help out with the bid by looking out for the petitions which have been placed around the city and putting your name on the dotted line. Although no launch date has been set. Mayday Communications will be organising a series ofspecial events beginning around Christmas. details are sketchy at the moment but watch this space for details.
