Get a Whistle

leave a comment »

Any self respecting Brummie should be aware that Brum is the home of the whistle.  Spotted a great article today over at the Music Thing blog about Acme whistles including the legendary Thunderer, the standard FIFA ref’s whistle.

J Hudson are still making Acme Whistles, are still based in Birmingham and have quite a nice website.
