A Helping of History - 17/10/2017

Playing tracks by

Boney M., Great Ladies Of Rock & Roll, Peggy Lee, Four Tops, Frank Sinatra and more.

Last week’s show ended up being focused on parks (particularly Boggart Hole Clough and Heaton Park), so this week I’m going look at a different aspect of our area’s history: dyeworks. I’ll be talking Turkey Red, the Delaunays and the Borelles. If you’ve got a story or a memory about the Blackley and Crumpsall dyeworks, I’d love to hear from you! Text the studio on 07555 461066 or tweet me @HannahKateish.

Also on this week’s show, I’ll be reading Yesterday’s Papers, and you can play along with this week’s Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s buildings? This week, you can also enjoy the first installment of ‘The Heaton Park Mystery’, a baffling real-life mystery that took place in 1883.

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