On the 13th of July 2017 all roads led to the Chesford Grange Hotel, Warwickshire for the TPAS National Finals 2017. This very special night would see our special 10th Anniversary celebrations. It has been my great pleasure to host every TPAS Awards Ceremony over the past 10 years. I would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to everyone who has worked over the past decade to ensure the success of this wonderful event.


Coming soon! Yes it's true, yours truly Mike Shaft is out and about for a very special Old Skool Soul night. Hear tunes from some of the North West's great soul nights of years gone by. You'll want to be there.

For almost all the years that I have been broadcasting online, I have used the same broadcast company - 'Radio.Co'. Recently, they launched their own DAB radio station in the Manchester area - 'MCR Live'.


Saturday the 8th of July saw the wonderful Sparkle take place in Manchester. It was a joy to behold. I had the great pleasure of hosting the Awards and the Gala Ball as well. It was truly a weekend to remember.


‘Peace and Unity: Our Manchester – Our Communities’ will take place in and around Manchester Cathedral from 1.00pm-4.00pm on Sunday the 23rd of July 2017. This event is a follow-up to the hugely successful ‘Peace and Unity: One Community’ event which took place in July 2016 at Manchester Town Hall.
