Stanley Chow is a world-renowned artist from Manchester whose artwork is now commonplace with Mancunians after drawing countless icons from the city. From Liam Gallagher to Emmeline Pankhurst, you’ll see Stan’s distinctive drawings scattered around the walls of so many buildings, bars and restaurants in the city.

Hear as he tells Lisa Morton how he very nearly won a GRAMMY,  met Man United legends such as Bobby Charlton and Dennis Law, and how he and those around him felt they were on the cusp of something big in the famed 90s of Manchester.

Your host, Lisa Morton, started PR company Roland Dransfield in 1996, one month after the fateful IRA bomb that tore apart the city centre.  From that point, the business, and its team members, have been involved in helping to support the creation of Modern Manchester – across regeneration, business, charity, leisure and hospitality, sport and culture.


To celebrate the 25 years that Roland Dransfield has spent creating these bonds, Lisa is gathering together some of her Greater Mancunian ‘family’ and will be exploring how they have created their own purposeful relationships with the best place in the world.
