North Kensington born and bred, Roger Rogowski has curated a wonderful local history book "The Other Side Of Notting Hill, From Wartime To The Westway", in the tradition of Studs Terkel et al, recording the lives of ordinary people before the bankers and wankers colonised the area. We talk about the manor back in the day and play a few tunes including his Flipside Five

Roger:
Haha my Polish mum was a massive Jim Reeves fan, so I share your dislike! The Killing Joke track about the Grove was cool - not heard that before so ty, also for the library info - I shall reserve your book now ASAP. I hope you sell many, many copies.

Roger Rogowski

Thank you Irena. It was a first for me and I really enjoyed it. I won't ask you which song you didn't enjoy but I bet it was one of mine haha. I've donated three books to the libraries department. They've put two in Phillimore Walk and one in Ladbroke Grove so they are your best bets in terms of getting the book out. I hope you enjoy reading it.

Thank you Aidan & Roger for an excellent show with some fab & groovy music choices (with one exception!) and good q’s and a’s. I will search for Roger’s book in Kensal library and request it if it’s not available ;)

It wasn't what you were looking for? Nice one, it should be in the local library at least! If it isn't let's get it in there.
