A Helping of History with special guests Edgar Wood Society and Friends of Angel Meadow - 12/06/2018

A Helping of History with special guests Edgar Wood Society and Friends of Angel Meadow - 12/06/2018

Playing tracks by

Tom Jones, The Mindbenders, Betty Hutton, Jerry Lee Lewis, The Lovin' Spoonful and more.

In the first hour of the show, I’ll be joined by Christine Grime of the Edgar Wood Society, and then in the second, I’ll be welcoming Richard Long from the Friends of Angel Meadow.

The Edgar Wood Society was formed in April 2011 to promote the architecture, furniture, paintings and other work of Edgar Wood and his role in the developing Arts & Crafts movement.

Angel Meadow was a notorious Victorian slum. In 2004, the Friends of Angel Meadow formed to campaign for the park’s continued redevelopment, and since then considerable money has been raised through grants and Manchester City Council interest.

As always, I’ll also be taking a look through Yesterday’s Papers. And you can pit 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
