We Are Fam with Sarah-Jane Brooks

Hi I’m Sarah-Jane I’m show every Wednesday 10 till 11, I was very lucky growing up as my dad played music in our house constantly. I heard John Peels radio show when I was fourteen and he helped me discover a whole new underground music scene.

My first album was Bob Marley Exodus given to me by cousins, this led to my love of reggae, two tone and ska.
Being sixteen in Manchester in 1988 was a great time with so many bands, gigs and DJs playing in the city and obviously it was the heyday of the Hacienda.

My love of music has stayed with me and I still attend various music events from the Bridgewater Hall to independent jungle nights in the city centre.
