Vic McGlynn – Radio DJ / livefrommanchester.com
Former BBC 6 Music lunchtime hostess and new music sourcer-ess, Vic McGlynn, was raised from a young age on a healthy mix of The Smiths; Tears for Fears, Wings, Labi Siffree and The Who. At 17 she was Djing in clubs and dens, delivering schmindie and funk to schmindie funksters. At the age of 18, she blagged her first radio graveyard shift and cocked about in the small hours. Landing a specialist show in Liverpool, she was able to fill her alternative boots and get tickets to the gigs. Via Manchester she headed to London and 6 Music and then 3 years later did one to Australia and cycled 3000-miles across the desert – you know, just for a laugh.
She’s currently exploring hip hop and metal (again) and is struggling to understand bitcore.
Vic is soon to co-launch livefrommanchester.com – a not-for-profit podcast broadcasting from a great Manchester boozer with a healthy and varied output of top draw fodder – unsigned, semi signed, news, reviews – all helping the music community gain attention.
“All we ask is that bands give us their music for the intents of broadcast, and in return we can give them exposure and help the cause in delivering that sweet, sweet music to our sweet, sweet ears.”
