Kelham Island Discs No. 2. An Interview with Andy Whitehouse, songwriter, performer and composer
5 days ago
No. 2, An interview with the fabulous Andy Whitehouse, is a welcome addition to my 'Kelham Island Discs' podcasts. For those who don't know, Kelham Island was once at the industrial Heart of Sheffield. The steel production and casting took place down the East End where Hitler failed to bomb them, preferring our town centre instead. I don't know why he did that, the pubs weren't that bad... But the Kelham Island area was the Heart of the engineering section, where the raw steel was actually made into something useful that we could throw back at Hitler! Nowadays, the factories are becoming up-market apartments for overpaid hamsters and students with well-off parents, but having said that, the pubs around there are certainly springing back to life. Not least 'The Gardeners Rest' on Neepsend Lane... of which I own a share! Go and buy beer! Make me rich!
