Chart positions

This show was 13th in the global acid house chart, 20th in the global interview chart and 28th in the global rave chart.

The Lapsed Clubber Audio Map is an online platform that allows members of Manchester’s original acid house community to share their spoken word memories of clubbing and its culture during the ‘first decade’ of rave, 1985-1995.

This podcast is a conversation between the project leaders Beate Peter & Abigail Ward, interspersed with memories from anonymous clubbers and tunes from the era. Beate & Abigail also discuss their own (occasionally tragic) early clubbing experiences in Berlin and Preston, Lancs, respectively.

Haha, want to hear the whole story - so mean to end right when it was the most interesting :) Loved the conversation. I didn't know about the map and this project before - such a great idea!
