This is the RFM 104.4 London as transmitted version. Mr Manchester and the Factory Girl is the story of Tony Wilson, the legendary music impresario behind Factory Records, Joy Division, New Order and The Happy Mondays, and his relationship with his first wife, Lindsay Reade. She gives us a fascinating insider account into the of the founding of Factory Records, and its eventual implosion, the birth of the seventies Punk scene, led by an unfailingly energetic Tony Wilson, the building of the Hacienda club, and the legendary excesses of Madchester scene. This is the tale of a deeply-felt, turbulent, yet ultimately life-long enduring relationship between two people, set at the heart of a vibrant, rapidly evolving music scene that would put Manchester on the cultural map forever! Lindsay Reade worked for Factory Records and managed the Stone Roses. She has previously co-written the book Torn Apart: The Life of Ian Curtis. (Share this please)

Sounds like an interesting read; used to be a huge Joy Division fan back in the day. I will definitely be on the lookout for the book. Thanks for sharing :)
