Craig Charles presents Manchester music history programme

Coronation Street actor and DJ Craig Charles will present a radio documentary this week about the time in 1964 when a number of Blues performers played at Chorlton Railway Station.

Didn’t It Rain: When The Blues Came to Britain will air on the network this Thursday 24th October 2013 at 10pm and is presented by Coronation Street actor and 6 Music presenter Craig Charles (Lloyd Mullaney in Corrie).

Made in Manchester Creative Director Ashley Byrne says: ‘It’s an incredible tale of a largely forgotten piece of music history – the moment in Manchester in early 1964 when some of America’s legendary Blues performers played at Chorlton Railway Station.’

Among those who performed on the night are Cousin Joe Pleasant, Muddy Waters, Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Otis Span, Willie Smith and Ransome Knowling.
