More documentary nostalgia (it's not what it used to be) to wallow in.

Faster ... but slower - a radio documentary from 1980-something about Martin Hannett. Sound quality very variable (it's an old tape) but you can hear it through headphones.

Substance - the DVD .mp4 No idea of the provenance of this. Got it years ago from a mate in Salford. I have uploaded two versions. This is .mp4 so should play on most media players, but it lacks the menu of the DVD.

Substance - the DVD disc image This version is a disc image, so when opened should play on software DVD player, or can be burned to disc to play in conventional DVD player.

This is the way, step inside.

Many thanks for these, especially the Hannett documentary / interview which I've never heard before..

Any idea what station it was broadcast on?

As it's narrated by Mark Radcliffe, I'm thinking it might have been on Piccadilly Radio.  I have a note that there was a Hannett documentary on that station in February 1982, so I'm wondering if it's that.  It sounds like it could be from that time and, according to Radcliffe's Wikipedia page, he started working at Piccadilly in 1982.

Hi perspex,

Apologies for the delay in replying, but I have been trying to find a bit more info (ie. googling) about the Hannett documentary. And so far, nothing. I think you're right, it very likely was on Piccadilly, but as I unfortunately did not write down crucial information at the time I can tell you nothing more. I will post here if I do manage to find anything new, but I don't recommend holding your breath while you wait!

I received a cassette copy of this many years ago, it just says "Martin Hannett profile, Piccadilly radio, February 1982".
I think Piccadilly Radio has since changed its name to Greatest Hits Manchester. I don't know if they'd have details of programmes going back that far so it would be possible to find the exact date it was aired.

Thanks both.
At least that confirms that it is the same interview that I had noted down on my spreadsheet as a 'Piccadilly Radio Hannett feature' from February 1982.

It's a pretty great little piece and it's always nice to hear stuff (especially from that period) that I've never heard before.

Hi perspex and Erik,

It's amazing what you can find on the internet, even when it's no longer there. web.archive.org has something of the Martin Hannett project still available:

http://web.archive.org/web/19981205172353/http://freespace.virgin.net/anna.b/hannett/hannett.htm

I have only had a short look round it, but if you are prepared to look at the later snapshots, there may be other additions which might reveal something about the nominally Piccadilly Radio programme.
