A Helping of History - 24/10/2017

Playing tracks by

Bobby Vinton, Keely Smith, The Four Seasons, Shirley Bassey, The Drifters and more.

Last week’s show was all about the Blackley and Crumpsall dyeworks, the Delaunays and the Borelles. This week I’m going to be talking about another famous North Manchester family and telling the story of why composer Frederic Chopin once came to stay in Crumpsall. If you’ve got a story or a memory about North Manchester, 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? And stay tuned for the second 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
