My name is Mike Hall and I was born in Thornaby Cleveland UK. I am the original mental vampire who is lost in music I started djing at the age of 15 playing music at the Thornaby Pavilion for children’s parties. I worked in the following night clubs as well The Kirk Tall Trees The Mall Peppermint Park Maddisons I have also featured as a dj on sky TV weddings show. I have worked as a mobile dj covering all of the Noth East since 1986 to present day. I have also managed at home and London local bands such as President and Charmed Life both have had singles out.. My main music interests are Ultravox magazine the big dish talk talk simple minds love and money all of these bands are from the 80s. So a Kick up the 80s is born from my halcyon days of my youth. I love music and I have often said its in my vains instead of blood… My quote for the show is What is life without music… Sit back turn it up and enjoy the musical ride that is called a kick up the 80s…ps I will be playing a bit from the late 70s lol but keep that to yourself… DO WE DREAM IN COLOUR YOU WILL AFTER THE SHOW..
