A Helping of History – Festive Editions

Coming up on A Helping of History on North Manchester FM over the Christmas period, I’ve got a couple of new shows for you.

Boxing Day Special

On Tuesday 26th December at 12-2pm, it’s the Helping of History Christmas Memories Special. North Manchester residents will be sharing their memories of Christmases (and Hanukkahs) past in Moston, Harpurhey, Crumpsall and Blackley. I’ll also be reading Yesterday’s Papers, and as always you can pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s iconic buildings?

New Year Special

The first Helping of History of 2018 will be on Tuesday 2nd January at 12 noon. I’ll be reading Yesterday’s Papers from 1900, to see how past-Manchester celebrated the new century. And there’ll be another mystery building to puzzle over in the Who Am I? quiz. And as if this wasn’t enough, I’m going to be talking about the Help the Poor Struggler pub in Hollinwood, and the peculiar double-life of one of its landlords.

Tune in to A Helping of History on Tuesdays at 12 on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
