Celebrity DJ Gok Wan to join Gaydio for new special shows

‘I am super excited to bring my music to the station in the company of some of the greatest DJs out there’ says Gok

Manchester’s LGBTQ+ radio station, Gaydio, has announced that celebrity fashion consultant and DJ Gok Wan is to join the station this month for an exclusive series of guest mix shows.

Known for his fashion design, styling and best-selling books as well as being a beloved presenter and television personality, Gok is also a DJ and producer. 

During lockdown he used his Isolation Nation online stream to showcase his love and affection for house and dance music, with all the energy and flair the nation has come to expect from him.

The station, which broadcasts on DAB Digital Radio across Manchester, Greater London, Brighton, Birmingham, Glasgow and Portsmouth, reaches 535,000+ listeners per week across the UK, making it one of the biggest media platforms for an LGBTQ+ audience in the country.

They’re now welcoming special guest Gok to further expand their line-up of LGBTQ+ talent, with his first show launching this evening.

“I’m so happy that Gok Wan will be showcasing some of his favourite music In The Mix throughout September for us,” said Kriss Herbert-Noble, Content Manager for Gaydio.

“At a time when many festivals and Pride events aren’t going ahead, Gaydio is a home for LGBTQ+ people to connect around a shared love of music.”

Fashion consultant, author, television presenter, actor and DJ Gok Wan is delighted to be joining the station, which also broadcasts online and through mobile apps and smart speakers.

“I have always been a huge fan of Gaydio, even before I was on the decks myself, and I am super excited to bring my music to the station in the company of some of the greatest DJs out there,” he said.

“Let’s party!!”

Gok Wan’s show will start from Friday 3rd September 2021 for a limited time on LGBTQ+ radio station Gaydio, broadcasting between 6pm and 7pm. Listen on 88.4FM, DAB Radio or ask your smart speaker to ‘play Gaydio Manchester’.
