The Bard of Salford

Thursday 8 May 2008 11:30-12:00 (Radio 4 FM)


Paul Morley traces the life and works of Manchester punk poet John Cooper Clarke.

With his acerbic, witty and punchy style, Clarke combined poetry with the harsh reality of growing up in a poverty-stricken industrial northern town. He made it accessible within the framework of the rebellious artistic movement of the 1970s.

Contributors include Mark E Smith, Pete Shelly, Kate Nash, Phill Jupitus and Clarke himself.

Followed by News.
