BBC Radio Merseyside – the country’s most popular local radio station – is to broadcast an interview discussion about Hardship and Hope. I met Paul Beesley today at the studios and had a chat. Paul himself is a local history expert and guide. We discussed the motivation behind the book, why I wrote it, and what sort of reader might be interested. The broadcast goes out soon, on the mid-morning programme. Possibly tomorrow ( Wed) at around 11-00. Fingers crossed.
