“Musicians on the Radio” Manchester event

The Radio Academy North West branch are holding their first event of the year on March 10th – discussing musicians on the radio.

The BBC’s Mike Sweeney will be in conversation with Mike Joyce of The Smiths and Clint Boon of Inspiral Carpets.

Both musicians have made the move to radio – with Clint joining The Revolution in Oldham as Head of Music then on to Xfm to host drivetime. Mike also worked at The Revolution before becoming a regular presenter on BBC 6Music and launching his own online radio station and music franchise, Beatwolf.

Host Mike Sweeney launched his career on Manchester’s Piccadilly Radio before joining Capital Gold, Rock Radio and Real Radio XS – he now presents a morning show on BBC Radio Manchester. And Mike is no stranger to the stage having performed with Salford rock band The Jets.

The event takes place at Gulliver’s Bar, Manchester on Monday 10th March 7:30pm for an 8pm start. More details here.
