A Helping of History - 19/02/2019

Playing tracks by

The Beach Boys, Peggy Lee, Tom Jones, Elvis Presley, Edison Lighthouse and more.

I’ve got two fantastic interviews lined up for this week’s show, about two really great projects looking at the history and stories of our local area.

In the first hour of the show, I’ll be talking to historian Katrina Navickas about her current project: A History of Public Space. In particular, Katrina will be talking about Cropper Street (now Osborne Street) on the border of Collyhurst and Miles Platting. Is this Manchester’s most radical street?

And then in the second hour of the show, I’ll be talking to Julian Hill of Foundland Theatre and Manchester Playwrights Forum about an exciting new participatory theatre project for Moston and Harpurhey, titled ‘Our Life’. Find out more – including how to get involved – on Tuesday’s show.

In addition to these two wonderful interviews, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers on the show.

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