DJ since the age of fourteen, Mike’s love of all things Jazz, Funk and Soul began in the early ’80s when he moved to Magalluf to work at Tokio Joes. The lure of playing records in the sunshine and all the trappings that went with it was too tempting an opportunity for an 18-year-old to turn down so he left his native North Wales and his emersion into music began in earnest.
Mike Vitti’s radio career began in 1987 hosting the first ever dance show on Lancashire’s Red Rose Radio (now Rock FM), and since then he has presented programmes on Saturdays non-stop, playing a Funky mix of House, Jazz, Funk, Soul and Boogie.
Following a very successful five year stint as the programme director at Jazz FM where he curated the Funky Sensation brand to include a Saturday night radio show, live events at London’s prestigious Ronnie Scott’s and a series of hugely popular CDs, Mike left to develop the brand further and joined Gordon Mac at London’s Mi-Soul Radio, where the now Funky Nation is even bigger, better and funkier. The club night at Ronnie Scott’s (which has just celebrated its 9th anniversary) is even stronger and more popular than ever, and you can witness that for yourselves every Saturday night.
