Tune in to North Manchester FM on Tuesday at 12 for another Helping of History. This week, I have two fantastic interviews for you…
I’ll be welcoming back Alan Clegg, who was on the show last week talking about Middleton’s John Stocke Charity. This week, I’ll be chatting to Alan about the magazine Memories of Middleton, which is all about the local and social history of the area. Alan will be telling us about how the magazine came about, but also some of the great stories that have featured over the years.
My second interview is with Will Carr of the International Anthony Burgess Foundation. Will is the editor of The Ink Trade, a new collection of journalism by Anthony Burgess (Harpurhey’s famous literary son), which was launched on 30th May at the Burgess Foundation’s building in Chorlton-on-Medlock. I caught up with Will before the launch to find out more about the book, and about Burgess’s North Manchester roots.
As well as these two wonderful interviews, I’ll be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers. And you can pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s iconic buildings.
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).
