The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Gumbo FM is an online radio station, set up by music lovers for music lovers.

Broadcasting from its Meersbrook studio – or, at the moment, remotely from bedrooms or cupboards – Gumbo's DJs play everything from reggae to disco, northern soul to drum and bass, house to new wave. The current DJ roster includes the legendary Winston Hazel presenting his Kabal Party show on Saturday evenings; and DJ STAV, a pioneer of Sheffield's much-missed drum and bass night NY Sushi. There's the 601 Crew bringing the best in soul and Motown, and Ann D with the techno, dub, breaks, beats, and anything in between. Amongst these longstanding and familiar names and faces from the Sheffield music scene is the radio station's youngest DJ, at 15 years old. Get to know the current lineup of presenters.

When they're not broadcasting, the Gumbo DJs fundraise for the local community and regularly take to the decks at the White Lion in Heeley, Hagglers Corner, Record Junkee (with the night Easy Skanking and The Originators), and DINA.
