A Helping of History with special guests Denise Beddows and People's History Museum - 26/03/19

A Helping of History with special guests Denise Beddows and People's History Museum - 26/03/19

Playing tracks by

Count Basie, Connie Francis, Frankie Lymon, Marty Wilde, Elvis Presley and more.

I’ve got two fantastic (though very different!) interviews for you on this week’s show.

In the first hour, I’ll be talking to author Denise Beddows about her latest book, The Cheetham Hill Murder: A Convenient Killing? The book reexamines the case of the murder of Frances Levin in 1933. Sparking what was described as Manchester CID’s ‘biggest manhunt’, the murder of Mrs Levin shocked the community of Cheetham Hill at the time.

And then in the second hour, I’ll be talking to Sam Jenkins of the People’s History Museum about the new exhibition: Disrupt? Peterloo and Protest. This exhibition takes visitors through the past, present and future of protest, beginning with the story of the Peterloo Massacre, which is told through original artefacts.

Of course, as well as these two fantastic guests, 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
