This mix is a recording of the 'Move 95' show broadcast on Key 103 (Manchester) on Sunday 19th March 1995
In 1982 Stu Allan took up DJing.
In July 1986 he was given his own show on Piccadilly Radio. He was originally filling in for the regular DJ on a 6 week vacation, but the reaction was so great from listeners that he was signed on permanently. He began featuring Hip Hop and a new style of music called House. "Love Can't Turn Around" by Farley Jackmaster Funk was the first record Stu played on the radio. This track got the attention of the people in charge of the station and Allan was asked to explain why he was playing this "music". He said he believed this was what listeners really wanted to hear (having seen clubbers going wild to tunes like "Jack Your Body", "Jack The Groove" and many other underground Chicago label tunes at his gigs), and convinced them that his choice of music was right when the station's ratings improved massively.
