City renovations, a local preview of Eurovision and more. (Notes below).

Listen back on the mixcloud player above to this edition of our Dam Daily show. News and events out of Amsterdam + Cathy’s music picks.

🎵 Music included Hozier, a beautiful SMYL track for two Amsterdam friends no longer with us, and John Ritter who has a concert at the Zonnehuis in April. Here’s the Eurovision entry from Azerbaijan, TuralTuranX.

Stories included …

  • Zonneplein in Noord is getting green makeover, with more shade, planters and grass.
  • the weekly Tuesday Shortcutz film night has a great programme in flow, free but reserve your ticket to be sure
  • Westertoren bells to stop for a year
  • the childcare crisis for Amsterdam nurseries, some research from AT5
  • Amstelpassage closes for repairs at Central Station
