Paul Hanley on All FM’s Charity Shop Classics show. Guests are invited to present a selection of records bought in charity shops. Paul presents his selection to host Gavin Hogg and includes a bit of Herman’s Hermits, Tommy Steele and perhaps the corniest Perry Como track you’ve ever heard, amongst others. There’s laughs aplenty between the records and talk of Leave The Capital.
Paul Hanley talks with Steve Titley on the Church of The Fall show on FAB Radio International, discussing Leave The Capital, Strawberry and Pluto studios and the music of the Hollies, 10cc, Herman’s Hermits, New Order, The Fall and Brix and The Extricated among others. With musical interludes.

Steve and Paul Hanley were special guests of Classic Album Tuesdays and talked to guest host Gavin Hogg about The Fall album Perverted By Language. Here they talk about the album, their respective books (The Big Midweek and Leave The Capital), playing with Brix & The Extricated, and they take questions from the floor.
On the evening, Perverted By Language was played in full on vinyl. Here, just a single track is included for educational purposes.
Running time 47:35. Recorded at Edward’s, Sheffield on 28 November 2017. Both brothers are audibly suffering from a cold virus, which it appeared that 80% of the nation was carrying at that time.
Paul Hanley met up with Mickey Bradley of The Undertones at Louder Than Words Festival in Manchester. They exchanged signed books. (Paul once stood in on drums for The Undertones at a gig in the Shetland Islands which is a whole story in itself!) When Mickey got back home it was clear he was fired up by the book and dedicated half of his weekly record show on Radio Ulster to the it. Even that wasn’t enough to satisfy his enthusiasm, he did the same the following week with the second part of the book. We’ve wired both together here seamlessley for your enjoyment. You may have heard books reviewed on the radio before, but we wager you might not have heard a book review quite like this. Click play above to listen.
Paul Hanley talks with Mike Sweeney on BBC Radio Manchester about Leave The Capital. Mike makes it abundantly clear that he loved the book. Recorded on the morning of the book launch: 26th October 2017.
