Join the WORLDWIDE FM crew in Manchester as the radio station travels North to broadcast live from the newly reopened venue, Band on the Wall on Thursday 31st March from 12pm until 7pm.

Providing the soundtrack to your afternoon are some of the stations’ esteemed Manchester based residents who’ve invited some special guests to their shows.

Kicking off the afternoon will be the legendary Mr Scruff who is no stranger to Band on the Wall as he’s been hosting his night there for over 20 years. Manchester icon and queen of the party, DJ Paulette will no doubt be showing us some stellar selections right after a Band on The Wall takeover of the WORLDWIDE airwaves.

Followed by the Murmurs crew who’ve been making waves with their slant on dancefloor shakers from across the globe. Finally, the renowned DJ and label head Pete On The Corner will take us to far flung corners of the world for a celebration of the global underground.
