On Monday, February 18, the first piece covered the history of The Beatles (of course); next came a production about the Toxteth Race Riots; this was followed by a feature about the Hillsborough soccer crush disaster of 1989; then the May Blitz in 1941; and last but not least Pope John Paul II’s visit in 1982.
Liverpool is situated on the River Mersey . . . so radio “waves” on the Mersey, get it? Race riots, soccer riots, Nazis, Popes, and the Beatles—you’ve got to love Liverpool. And you’ve got to love these radios, too. Here are some more pictures, gleaned from the project’s Facebook page.
