Joseph Packman | 31/03/19

Joe started out DJ’ing by learning to play drums and playing in an indie rock band for 5 years. During this time the band were able to bag support slots for Kid British and The Big Pink, as well as playing in what felt like every small bar or club in the country.  Once the band decided to take a break Joe moved on and began self-teaching himself how to DJ using what he already learnt from drumming. He now is a resident in the Northen Quarter’s Mint Lounge for their ‘Top Of The Pops’ night, as well as bringing you a selection of his personal favourite tracks and songs every 4 weeks on MCR Live, ranging from Rap to Disco and everything in between.

The Vanity Project | 30/03/19

The Vanity Project are a Manchester based indie pop duo, who spend 1/3 of their time on stage playing music and 2/3 making jokes. The city council, therefore, demanded that they are given a radio show in order to vent their waffle so that they can actually play some gigs. Expect silly skits in the vein of Adam & Joe and ill prepared tangents in the vein of Shaun Keaveny, along with a diverse mishmash of tunes from the likes of Father John Misty, The Kinks, XTC, Kero Kero Benito and their favourite upcoming artists.
