In our final 'Corrie at 60' series, we meet 3 of the very early stars of the Street. It's back to December 9th 1960 with Alan Rothwell who played David Barlow and Patricia Shakesby who played Susan Cunningham, Ken Barlow's first girlfriend. Both have great stories from the first days of Coronation Street. Then we're meeting Kenneth Cope who played Minnie Caldwell's lodger Sunny Jim (Jed Stone) from 1961 onwards. All these actors did other things, so expect one or two tangents along the way.  Enjoy!

And don't forget Distinct Nostalgia has a plethora of shows marking Corrie's 60th. Trawl through the DN player or wherever you get your podcasts and you will find a catalogue of interviews and hours of Street history.

DN is produced by MIM. The Distinct Nostalgia theme is composed by Rebecca Applin and Chris Warner.
