Andy Kershaw live at the Trades

Tuesday, 2 April 2013

Andrew KershawOutspoken broadcaster Andy Kershaw was born in Rochdale and has made the short trip over the border to settle in Todmorden.

As well as presenting on Live Aid to billions of people worldwide, inventing the World Music concept, sharing an office with John Peel and winning more Sony awards than any other broadcaster, he also put on legendary gigs from the likes of The Clash at Leeds University.

So it seems a natural progression to create a one man show talking about his extraordinary life and his acclaimed biography 'No Off Switch' which he brings to the Trades Club on Thursday 18 April.

"As Andy only lives up the road it seemed like a no-brainer to bring his new one man show to the Trades," Club Spokesperson Paul Clarke told the HebWeb. "Andy is well known for speaking his mind, and has an encyclopedic knowledge of music, so we are expecting a lively debate on the night."

It's worth noting that national institution Stephen Fry said of Andy: 'He is the finest British broadcaster bar none.'

Tickets are available form the club. Jumbo Records or www.wegottickets.com.
