The XS Manchester Music Tour

An Outside Broadcast series, by 2ZY Ltd, for XS Manchester

A series of ten outside broadcasts, one from each Greater Manchester borough, celebrating the past, present and future of Manchester Music and the social history of the area. Fronted by Inspiral Carpets keyboard player Clint Boon, with a diverse range of guests and listener contributions.

Venues will include Salford Lads Club (made famous by The Smiths), Wigan Casino Cafe (cult Northern Soul venue), and The Met in Bury (legendary live music and arts venue). Listeners and locals will provide the nostalgia, with interviews from heritage and new artists adding to the sound.

The programmes were broadcast on Fridays from 13 September to 15 November on XS Manchester.
