North Manchester FM: A Helping of History, Tuesday 13 August, 12-2pm

Join me on Tuesday at 12 for another Helping of History on North Manchester FM. This week’s a bit of an unusual show, as I’m going to be joined in the studio by another NMFM presenter… the lovely John Barker!

This summer sees a number of important birthdays and anniversaries in the local area… from the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo Massacre to the 120th anniversary of the opening of Crumpsall Park. Citizens Advice Manchester turns 80 this year, and later on (in the autumn) the North Manchester Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society turns 100! Of course, there’s another birthday a little closer to home as well… North Manchester FM hits ten years old this summer!

Join me and John as we talk about some of these anniversaries and their importance for our local area. And, of course, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers in the second hour of the show.

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