DJ PAULETTE presents TOGETHER is about bringing all the DJs and the Manchester community together – waking up and gently moving out of the lockdown to celebrate as one at our mini festival in the sunshine. There’s food, there’s drink, it’s family AND dog friendly, it’s fully socially distanced fun, it’s enjoying music with real people IN REAL LIFE and best of all – it’s FREE. It’s on from May 31 – August 13, 2021. Read on.
ANTON STEVENS – DIRECTOR OF HIDDEN CLUB (MANCHESTER) is next in my line of men you should know about. He’s a music loving Mancunian born and bred, a Leeds University graduate, a techno dj, an events organiser and promoter, a club director, a blindfold-level nappy changer and a grafter who eats hard work for breakfast. He is the Director of Hidden Club in Manchester aka Anton Fitz (DJ) with a 360 understanding of clubbing from artist to promotion, marketing and events and he gives a deep insight into where his natural affinity to the job comes from and the behind the scenes graft required to take him from being a 13 year old schoolboy handing flyers out for his birthday party to maturing into a keen business man who can keep one of Manchester’s finest underground clubs running like clockwork even during the pandemic.
Welcome to Press Play! – A new concept for Twitch, where DJs share their genre-non conforming knowledge, beats and basslines. It’s a game of 90 minutes that nearly didn’t make it to air thanks to my Anker Hub exploding and my not having a back up (a lesson learned, back up bought and thank you full moon). But after half an hour of nerve wracking, technical jiggery pokery – the lovely (and very patient) Dave Brown Face Timed me – and my WFH set up – right back on air … and for that I owe him a great debt of gratitude. Enjoy.
Next stop on the HEAR HEAR journey around the world for International Women’s month (because a day is nowhere near enough time to show all the women who influence and inspire us some love) is Manchester. In Episode 4 I celebrate the Divine Feminine version 188.8.131.52 with a true Manchester legend, celebrity, singer, Manchester United fan, dog lover and my HEAR HEAR INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S MONTH ICON – ROWETTA (MCR, UK). She’s a Proper Mancunian with a heart of gold and I’m honoured to have gained an audience with this absolute Queen.
In celebration of the Divine Feminine and for International Women’s Month version 184.108.40.206. I’ve crossed the Atlantic landing in NYC for a Zoom audience with all round powerhouse, artist, producer, remixer, dj, fearless activist and cat whisperer LAUREN FLAX. She’s a New Yorker from Detroit and she has a lot of tea to spill.
Welcome to accaliberation, my monthly celebration of the voice in all its guises and glory. This month I’m serving a post-St Valentine’s antidote of r n b, blues and soul, disco and house killer slings and Cupid’s arrows .

On air Saturday 27th of February from 21.00 – 23.00 GMT. Come through.
Happy New Year and Welcome to the first Accaliberation of 2021. Since National Lockdown has been recommissioned for series 3, this month’s story time focuses on the theme of ’Never Alone’. I call on some soulful sages and wise wordsmiths from Soulclap, The Beatles, James Brown, Fame Gospel Choir, Marco Faraone, Bobbi Humphrey, Patrice Rushen, Brainstorm, Blaze and many more to channel a message of how we can make our way through this lockdown and the pandemic with dignity, a smile and a sweaty body. It’s a soul, funk, disco, house genre-hopper and tells an isolation story like only music and lyrics can.
