Hello from the Cheshire Plain. Spring is definitely in the air! This episode sees the launch of a new, occasional, series A Postcard From… A prize is available for anyone who can identify the music clips in the postcard!
A Postcard from…Manchester
Whilst writing these show notes, I’ve made the horrific discovery that my memory card has corrupted, so I only have a few photos that I took on my phone to share, and those do not include the detail from The Hireling Shepherd by William Holman Hunt. So sorry!
The Jasperware by Wedgewood on the landing in the Manchester Art Gallery.
And the landing itself, looking at the casts of the Parthenon friezes.
This is the sign I mentioned when I was outside Affleck’s.
I took some superb pictures of the theatre-in-the-round structure inside The Royal Exchange, but sadly you’ll just have to put up with these two wobbly shots of the same area, to go with the shortened clip (I was just too quiet!)
Music: Rondopolska by Barry Philips, from the album Tråd, available from Magnatune.
We have a listeners’ map. Please go on over to pop in a pin – I’d love to see where you all are!
