Graeme Park to have Mom’s Spaghetti for breakfast

DJ Graeme Park will next month join the wonderfully named radio station Mom’s Spaghetti, which broadcasts on the DAB network in Manchester and is also available online.

The Eminem lyric honouring station first launched late last year as a non-stop music service, set up by Oldham-based media company Credible Media after it sold its former FM station, Revolution 96.2, to Bauer Media (who, needless to say, switched that FM frequency over to its Greatest Hits Radio network).

DJ are now slowly appearing in the Mom’s Spaghetti output, in among the classic hip hop and R&B tracks that the station plays. Former Hacienda resident DJ Park will be the highest profile of the outfit’s presenters when he starts hosting a breakfast show on 26 Jul. One time Hits Radio presenter John Isherwood is also presenting shows and will ultimately take over the Mom’s Spaghetti drive time slot.

Talking about his new radio gig, Park told Radio Today: “It’s a proposition that I’ve not heard on UK radio. A mix of forgotten hip hop classics of the 80s and 90s alongside pioneers like Eric B & Rakim, Grandmaster Flash, and Ice T. But there’s plenty to reflect the changing landscape of the 90s, with iconic tracks from the likes of Snoop, Jay-Z, The Beastie Boys, and Outkast”.
