A Helping of History - 11/06/2019

Playing tracks by

Gerry & The Pacemakers, The Four Seasons, Bobby Vee, Manfred Mann, The Champs and more.

This week, I’ll be sharing Three Tales of Old Chadderton.

Following the format of my previous ‘Three Tales’ shows (Crumpsall, Cheetham Hill, Collyhurst… I’m going to run out of Cs soon!), I’ve got a selection of curious tales from Chadderton’s past. As always, these aren’t the stories that might make the history books, but a little slice of life drawn from a selection of local newspapers. I’ve got a falling-out between tradesmen brothers, hen-rustling, and a sweet little story about the Morecambe Illuminations in 1935. If there’s time, I also have a little bit of bonus Peterloo content (though, if I’m honest, that one’s Failsworth rather than Chadderton).

As well as these Chadderton curiosities, I’ll be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers – and there might be a cheeky bonus theatre review for you as well!
