Listen to archive programmes

 

Manchester Central Library is home to many magnetic tapes that have recorded many historic programmes that were produced at Piccadilly Radio.  Slowly but surely, and subject to funding, the old tapes are being digitised for all to enjoy.


This is an important project which will save the programmes from decay and make them accessible to future generations for research and enjoyment.

The sound archive department at Manchester Central Library already has digitalised some material which means anyone can visit the library and listen to a range of Piccadilly Radio programmes for free. 

Ask the staff at the library for more information.   Here is a short taster of Dave Ward with Suzi Quatro!
