Mike Hollis joins Sunshine Radio for soul
Former Radio Luxembourg, Smooth and BRMB presenter Mike Hollis is joining Sunshine Radio for a Soul and Motown show.
He’ll start on July 5th and host the show each Sunday evening at 10, replacing Russ Winstanley.
Sunshine Radio Group Programme Controller Shaun Tilley: “I’ve known Mike for 27 years since we first worked together nationally on Radio Luxembourg. Put simply, he is a radio great and he also has a fantastic heritage on air in The Midlands.
“Just as importantly, he remains a very big name on the Northern Soul circuit in our patches and still packs out venues every weekend. All these ingredients make Mike the ideal host to take the show forward which is why he was my only choice to front it.
“After leaving Smooth, he’s resisted all offers to return to radio but he can hear how quickly the Sunshine stations are progressing and I’m chuffed he wants to be part of our exciting future. I’d also like to thank Russ Winstanley for presenting our Soul Show for the last couple of years and wish him all the very best”.
