Nothing But The Nineties does exactly what it says on the tin, except Mike isn't afraid to play those songs the other stations darn't touch, and most wouldn't admit they bought, but you did, didn't you? Otherwise they wouldn't have been in the charts in the first place!
Of course the show isn't all pop-tastic cheese, the show also plays a big mix of all the music crazes of the 1990s too, remember the heyday of Britpop, or were you more into your Speed Garage?
Whatever the genre, this show has it. Mike will also test your knowledge of the 90s with the odd fact or two about the tunes, a TV theme or two, and he'll even remind you about things you thought you'd forgotten about, remember Tamagotchis? Mike never had one of those, but he did have a Furby... which he not unlike everyone with their Tamagotchis he managed to kill!
Mike is from Yorkshire, but don't hold that against him, as he loves travelling the country and is more of a "where ever I lay my hat..." kinda guy. To be honest, your more likely to find him in Herefordshire sampling farmyard ciders then up in the North!
The rest of the time he's entertaining the masses with his encyclopedic knowledge of all things nineties. In fact, Mike has always been involved in entertaining folk in one way or another, as well as presenting on numerous local radio stations over the years, he's been a pub DJ, a club DJ, a quizmaster, an entertainments manager, and eventually a pub landlord, where of course he found time to do all of the above, as well as having time for a cheeky pint of scrumpy at the end of the bar!
During his time as a pub licensee, Mike used to live near Lichfield so he knows Tamworth well, well the pubs anyway as he'd often go on pub crawls to check out the competition. Today Mike is back doing what he loves best, playing music on the radio and reminding us about possibly the best decade for music, the 1990s.
