Stu Allan will be responsible for more cassette usage by our ‘more mature’ listeners than any other DJ we’d be willing to bet. Hours were spent every week in front of the cassette deck with a fresh D90 on Pause/Record waiting for Stu Allan to drop bombs. And for that, we salute him!
We were really chuffed when Stu agreed to give us a Top 10 EVER. Stu is an extremely active DJ and has a cult following in both Hip Hop and club fields, a feat not many DJs can pull off well. The selection was tough, but Stu selected tracks which meant a lot to him over his career… whether it’s a track which was massive in the clubs, or one which meant a lot to him personally.
