North Manchester FM: A Helping of History, Tuesday 24 October, 12-2pm

Join me on Tuesday at 12 on North Manchester FM for A Helping of History – my local history show.

Last week’s show was all about the Blackley and Crumpsall dyeworks, the Delaunays and the Borelles. This week I’m going to be talking about another famous North Manchester family and telling the story of why composer Frederic Chopin once came to stay in Crumpsall. If you’ve got a story or a memory about North Manchester, I’d love to hear from you! Text the studio on 07555 461066 or tweet me @HannahKateish.

Also on this week’s show, I’ll be reading Yesterday’s Papers, and you can play along with this week’s Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s buildings? And stay tuned for the second installment of ‘The Heaton Park Mystery’, a baffling real-life mystery that took place in 1883.

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