MUSIC legend turned radio DJ Clint Boon dropped by a Bolton music store for a special broadcast of his popular show.

The former Inspiral Carpets guitarist has been hitting the road to host his XS Manchester Drivetime programme as part of the station's Manchester Music Tour.

Between September and November Clint and his team are stopping off at pubs and other venues for a pre-show pint before recording live. On Friday it was the turn of Booths Music in Churchgate.

During the show Clint was joined by notable guests including up and coming 24-year-old Manchester singer songwriter Ryan Jarvis, Bolton-born broadcaster Mark Radcliffe, and the stars of the musical Seagulls, currently enjoying a run at The Octagon Theatre.

There were also performances from Bolton bands and artists including singer songwriter James Holt, youngsters Conixi and acoustic folk five piece The Cider ‘ouse Entourage.

Colin Liptrot, from Booths Music said: “We’re all very pleased to welcome XS Manchester, Clint Boon and all the guests to our premises.

“Booths Music was chosen as the venue to host the broadcast due to our role in working with and promoting all areas of the local musical community and beyond, we have often been described as a “hub of the music scene”. It’s really great to play a part in giving local artists who we have worked with over the years, such as James Holt and Conixi, a platform to reach a wider audience.”

Over ten weeks the Music tour is visiting seminal venues in each of the Greater Manchester borough to look at music history and the local music scene.

So far locations have included Salford Lads’ Club, Wigan Casino Cafe, and The Met in Bury.

John Ryan, producer of the XS Manchester Music Tour said: “For our Bolton show, we were in Booths given its rich history as the centre for musicians in the town going back to 1832.

“Clint’s the perfect presenter given his own contribution to the Manchester music scene, his support of new artists and his mammoth stint as DJ at South in Manchester.

“It was great to feature Ryan Jarvis and James Holt, talk about the new musical play Seagulls at the Octagon/Library Theatre and also play an interview with Boltonian musician and broadcaster Mark Radcliffe about his memories of growing up in Bolton and the first gigs he went to.”
