Houghton Weavers Interview

Today we welcomed the Houghton Weavers - well, two of them anyway - and the third one later... - to Preston FM where we recorded an interview for a special show to be aired next week.
Popular Lancashire folk band The Houghton Weavers will be featured in a special one hour radio programme on Preston FM next Friday (4th December) at 12 noon.
In this fascinating show, Guitarist David Littler and vocalist Tony Berry tell host Paul Breeze about how the Weavers first got together, about their successful BBC television series and recount various funny stories from their 35 years together as a band.
Featuring an exclusive preview of songs from their new CD “Ae Fond Kiss”, the show also looks ahead to the Weavers’ annual Christmas show at Preston Guildhall on Sunday 20th December.

Special Guests At Troops' CD Launch Party











World War 2 RAF veteran Roy Hardacre and Miss Blackpool Jessica Berry were guests of honour at a special musical evening that raised over £ 500 for a local ex servicemen’s charity at the Carousel Hotel.

Local good causes record label TTN Records launched their annual Christmas CD for the troops at a party night held in aid of the Blackpool branch of the Royal Marines Association.

The CD entitled “Wonderful World” by Frankie & Friends has 14 tracks by local artists, many of whom appeared on the night, along with Blackpool based Sahara’s Harem belly dance troupe and modern jive dancers from Bev Lewis’s Revolution Dance class.

Copies of the CD are available free of charge to ex servicemens’ groups to use for fundraising purposes, ideally to be auctioned at special events rather then just sold at face value. For more information, e-mail good causes record label TTN records ttnrecords@btinternet.com
