S1 E5 - Lainy Malkani talks to Carroll Thompson, Queen of Lover's Rock

I’m Lainy Malkani and welcome to the Social History Hub Podcast.

Every week I’ll be exploring the nature of social history and what it means to us today with an exciting line up of artists, entrepreneurs, academics and writers. They’ll share their stories and relive the moments and events that inspired them.

Coming up…The Queen of Lovers’ Rock, Carroll Thompson.

This week, I spoke to Carroll Thompson, the Queen of Lovers’ Rock, about the birth of a new reggae sound that was dominated by women and explored teenage angst of the 1970’s.

Next week on the Social History Hub podcast I’ll be talking theatre with Suman Bhuchar.  She’s been at the forefront of a movement to bring cultural diversity to UK audiences from the hit stage play, East is East to Bombay Dreams with Andrew Lloyd Webber. That’s next week on the Social History Hub podcast, join me if you can.
