BBC Descend Upon John Nolan ‘The Antiques Man’ Southport shop 

John Nolan The Antiques Man again has attracted the TV Crews of the BBC to our great town. This is the 14 time his antique and china shop has featured on national TV.

This time it is Paul Hayes from Cash in the Attic fame that has visited the Portland Street location of John Nolan’s antique shop. The name of the show is ” Put Your Money Where Your mouth is”. The show is due for publication in October 2016.

This must make Southport a  most interesting place for Antiques if the TV visits 14 times. When asked about the show John Nolan said due to BBC rules he is not allowed to discuss the show or any part of it. Other than to say it is the best program he has been involved in. Paul Hayes is a great and honest chap, great to work with, dealt with his dad back on the 1980’s also good to deal with.  He said on Thursday he has a visit from the Drew Pritchard, salvage hunter team from Wales. Two programs in a week. On a Wednesday between 9.00 am and 10.00 am Nolan is involved in a live radio show with Nella Fells, Neil Newton on Sandgrounder Radio.

This Wednesday will be Nolan’s sixth show. Neil Newton has told John Nolan how he admired the late Phil Rodwell (REST IN PEACE) how he could always get the best out of a story.

John Nolan went on to say, “There was only one, ON THE SPOT. He is sadly missed around town and at Andy’s cafe.”
