A Geordie Marley Story by Walter Diericx
Told by Sal Sturgeon
Geordie, his wife Jinnie, and their friends the Baxtors form a group of Tyneside characters who are now old acquaintances of Northern listeners. Their adventures, which are always told by Sal Sturgeon , invariably receive a warm welcome in the North-East. In this story the two men, who introduce some pigeons to a partridge shoot with the intention of making money out of the inevitable result, are again thwarted by their over-vigilant wives.
This evening's ' Flippant Fingers' pianist, Eric Stephenson , has been called ' Manchester's Charlie Kunz ' and a 'whispering pianist'. He is an amateur who, in the cause of charity, has appeared with world-famous Variety artists.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
