Radio Warrington featured President of The George Formby Society Gerry Mawdsley and Assistant Treasurer Neil Forshaw on The Arts Show on Thursday 05 April 2018. Neil and Gerry spent a very entertaining hour discussing the world of George Formby with Arts Show presenter Andy Green. Gerry also sang some Formby on both his wooden ukulele and his banjo-uke and listeners would have gained much from their informative discussion. I have split the time Gerry and Neil spent on the two-hour show in to seven parts so that you can listen to the whole of Gerry and Neil’s recording over a period.
