May 2012 is Action on Stroke Month, which means the raising of awareness about strokes.
I did an interview with Helen Gilbertson who is an Information Advice and Support Co-ordinator for the Stroke Association. She visits and supports stroke survivors around Greater Manchester. I met her at the launch for the Richard Creme exhibition at Manchester Metropolitan University. Richard is a well known Manchester style guru from back in the day, artist, husband, father and stroke survivor. Helen and I talked about some of his artworks in relation to surviving stroke. He is now seen as a visionary contemporary artist. All proceeds from the auction in aid of The Stroke Association.
I also broadcast a telephone interview I had done that week with musician Luis Drayton, about his punk past, getting off the junk, being 'The Queen of all Pus' and his upcoming gig at Toska's Salford Temptation.
