A Helping of History Electricity Special - 13/03/2018

Playing tracks by

Petula Clark, The Champs, The Beach Boys, Doris Day, Manfred Mann and more.

This week’s show will be electrifying… I’m going to be talking a little bit about electrical engineer Sebastian Ziani de Ferranti (known as the ‘English Edison’), and the factories his company built in Hollinwood and Moston. Stay tuned, as I’ll be revealing Ferranti’s most dramatic electrical ambition (which, sadly, has never come to pass).

In the second hour of the show, I’ll be talking to the organizers of the ‘Electric Generations’ exhibition at the Irish World Heritage Centre in Cheetham Hill, which opened last Thursday.

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
