Sara Cox loves music and plays sets that reflect her 20 years in this crazy biz we call show. From her 80s radio show, through brit pop to big beat and on to todays melting pot of pop, R&B, hip hop and dance, she’ll play it all. From Whitney to Kanye to Cameo, from the Killers to Kim Wilde, to Prince, Madness and the Prodigy – she’s always guaranteed to make people dance and even jump about a bit.
Born in glorious Bolton, the jewel of the North West, Sara Cox, daughter of beef farmers, left behind her career in Manchester as an international supermodel/barmaid to head to London in search of fame and fortune in the heady days of Brit Pop, 1995. She presented various tv shows, from Channel 4’s “The Girlie Show” to “MTV Hot”, Channel 5’s “Exclusive” and Channel 4 music programmes “Album Chart Show” and “Born Sloppy.”
Sara Cox presented BBC Radio One’s Breakfast show for 3 and a half years, taking the show to various festivals and to the Balearics for the notoriously hedonistic “Radio One’s Ibiza Weekend” and hosted numerous slots including drivetime and across the weekend. During these years Sara became a mum to 3 gorgeous children and is happily married to a very lovely and patient man called Ben.
