This show was 22nd in the global interview chart.
This week, my guests are the lovely George Melling (Th’Owd Chap) and equally lovely Sharon Lowe.
George Melling, performing pensioner poet from Wigan, has performed at many North West venues and headlined at several. He’s breaking into the Yorkshire spoken word scene later this year as guest poet, and he’s brought out a charity CD of his poetry set to music with proceeds going to Wigan and Leigh Hospice. George lives with Buttons the cat and his ukelele.
Writer, jobbing actor, singer, uke player, freelance artist, teacher and community activist, Sharon Lowe has been on the spoken word and performance poetry scene for a few years following getting the buzz while organising the Leigh & Wigan Words Together Literary Festival in 2012/13.
I talk to to George and Sharon about their work and, of course, they’ll be sharing their selections for Apocalypse Books.
