808 on sunset

Was a regular listener to 808 on Sunset.

Might be able to help with any track info if you can provide a description or clip.

Sunset was a community radio station for Manchester that ran for a few years from 89 to the early 90's but then fizzled out. Darren & Andrew of 808 had a show on Tuesday nights that was spot-on (and was also smart when they had other commitments and The Mix Factory covered for them).

There was also a decent Hip Hop show, with Leaky Fresh & Owen D, who were big in the Manc Hip Hop scene.

the mix factory had a show on sunset 102 on sunday nights (i used to do shouts on there as a 14 yr old scally!!). mike lewis (now known as dj kuta) then took over the show and started playing n-trance and stuff!
sami b's show on a saturday was also cool. the 808 show rocked though...made me late for school every wednesday morning!!!

Dance Energy, was the very first CD that I bought, a cool theme tune and it also had Cubik on there, which I was dead chuffed with.

Also remember Mama says knock you out, another class beat.
