A Helping of History - 03/04/2018

Playing tracks by

Betty Hutton, Aretha Franklin, Bobby Vinton, Ben E King, Dean Martin and more.

This week, I’m going to be talking about the literary daughters of Cheetham Hill.

Although they moved on and lived elsewhere in adult life, the writers Frances Hodgson Burnett, Jessie Fothergill and Maria Theresa Longworth (better known as Theresa Yelverton) were all born in Cheetham Hill in the nineteenth century. I’ll be sharing a bit about their backgrounds and stories on this week’s show.

And, as always, I’ll also be taking a look through Yesterday’s Papers, and you can put your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s landmark buildings?

Listen every Tuesday from 12-2pm, North Manchester FM, 106.6 FM
