North Manchester FM: A Helping of History, Tuesday 22 October, 12-2pm

Join me on Tuesday at 12 for another Helping of History on North Manchester FM. This week, I’m catching up on the story I was talking about last week, when I was unexpectedly interrupted by a fire alarm!

Listeners of last week’s Helping of History will remember that the second hour of the show was cut a little short when the fire alarm went off in the studio! I was about to talk about Mrs Margaret Taylor of Strangeways, and the boarding school she set up at the hall. Well, I thought Mrs Taylor deserved a little bit more attention, so I’ll be returning to her story on this week’s show. Fingers crossed there are no alarms this week!

In addition to this, I’ll be sharing some more info about the local history behind my new show on North Manchester FM – Ten Tales: Ghost Stories for North Manchester. And, of course, I’ll be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers.

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