Tune in to North Manchester FM on Saturday at 2pm for Hannah’s Bookshelf. This week, I’ll be welcoming Andy N back to the show. You may remember that Andy was one of the poets who performed on my Live Poetry Special in July, as part of the station’s Live Music Day.
Andy is a 44 year old writer, performer, creative writing workshop tutor and sometimes experimental musician from Manchester. He has been published in numerous books and magazines and has been performing in some form or the other since 2006 and regularly since 2008. He was also vocalist and keyboardist in the spoken word collective ‘A Means to an End’, and his new spoken word/music band Passover will be touring at the end of 2016/beginning of 2017. He is also the editor-in-chief of Spoken Label, a new spoken word based interview podcast label featuring podcasts with all kinds of writers and artists. Andy’s books include Return to Kempton (2010), The End of Summer (2015) and From the Diabetic Ward (2017/18).
I’ll be chatting to Andy about his poetry and performance – and, of course, he’ll be sharing his selections for Apocalypse Books in the second hour of the show.
Catch Hannah’s Bookshelf at 2pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
