New podcast: Recording the memories of Manchester’s original rave community

New podcast: Recording the memories of Manchester’s original rave community

The Lapsed Clubber Audio Map is an online platform within Manchester Digital Music Archive that allows members of Manchester’s original acid house community to share their spoken word memories of clubbing and its culture during the ‘first decade’ of rave, 1985-1995.

This podcast is a conversation between the project leaders Beate Peter and Abigail Ward, interspersed with memories from anonymous clubbers and tunes from the era. Beate and Abigail also discuss their own (occasionally tragic) early clubbing experiences in Berlin and Preston, Lancs, respectively.

The Lapsed Clubber Audio Map is a crowd-sourced digital heritage project led by Manchester Digital Music Archive and Manchester Metropolitan University, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund.
