Radio Merseyside

Enjoyed appearing on Billy Butler’s show on Saturday morning. Billy’s a great supporter of the magazine and I’ve been on when other issues have come out. He thinks Issue 4 is the best one yet, which is nice to hear. We talked about several of the topics in the magazine, including old Liverpool films, the interview with the Real Thing’s Eddie Amoo andĀ the feature on It All Came Tumbling Down, theĀ fascinating book by Freddie O’Connor and his brother Frankie about Liverpool’s lost streets and buildings. Also had an interesting chat with Ali Ingle, who was on the show as well. He recently won the award for Best Male Artist at the Liverpool Music Awards. He told me about his influences and favourite artists – everyone from George Formby to Van Morrison. He’s a singer songwriter with a strong Dylanish voice and clever, interesting lyrics – I’ll definitely try to see him live soon.
