Mike made his radio debut in 1992, and back then you had to choose between East 17 or Take That. As all the girls liked the latter, Mike went on-air for the very first time dressed in big baggy jeans, a checked shirt, chunky gold earings and a baseball cap. Yes, he knows this was a mistake now. Since then, Mike has continued to make fashion mistakes, and present on the radio. He also decided to come out of the studio to DJ in pubs and clubs hosting everything from student nights to specialist music events, most of this was done in flowery shirts! To cut a long story short, he became a pub landlord, but realised it wasn't for him as he had to dress smart, and so he's back behind the mic wearing what the hell he likes!
Nothing but the Nineties does what it says on the tin, but don't expect to hear the likes of Blur and Oasis over and over as Mike's on a mission to prove that the decade wasn't just about Britpop! In fact, he'll happily play some grunge, followed by a boy band, followed by some rave, and then something equally as bizarre!
This show really is a true representation of the 1990s, warts and all! Every week there's three tracks from one artist, an instrumental, a TV theme, an exclusive mash-up and plenty of other 90's nostalgia. So if you want to reminisce about the days when we still had saturday morning kids telly or just remember what music was like back then check out Nothing But The Nineties with Mike.
