Davey’s sister Annie MacManus has just landed her very own Radio 1 show on Thursday nights. A poster on The Crimea’s message board let slip that The Sun had a load of stuff about her in Saturdays edition, so I had a quick look around the web and found this…

Radio 1 champions new music with changes to its specialist line-up – 21.05.2004
Annie MacManus
Thursday nights will now have a distinctive clubbing feel.
Annie is a brand new DJ coming straight from The Zane Lowe show.
She is going to present a snapshot of everything that is new and exciting in the dance world.

From UTV:
Dubliner lands Radio 1 show – 21/05/2004

A 25-year-old near unknown has landed her own show on Radio 1 as part of the station’s shake-up of its evening schedule.
Annie MacManus was working as a broadcast assistant on Zane Lowe`s show when she was asked to do a pilot.
Radio 1 bosses were so impressed with the result that they offered her the chance to showcase new dance music on her own show.
The Dubliner has been handed the Thursday 9-11pm slot as a result of the overhaul, which sees Dave Pearce lose his two-hour drivetime slot.
A Radio 1 spokesman said: “Annie lives the life of our audience but she also showed us that she has the potential to become a great broadcaster.
“This makes her an ideal choice for the show.“
Annie MacManusThe new DJ said: “I couldn`t have asked for a better show that defines me and what I stand for.
“I am over the moon and can`t wait to get started.“

So being a dance show there’ll be no sign of The Crimea on the playlist I guess. Ah well. Check the pic of Davey in drag to the right. Oh, no, it’s Annie. Easy mistake?

EDIT: Some more stuff from the BBC, an Annie Mac Bio…

“Annie was born and bred in Dublin as part of a large, very musical family…
Within a year, she had moved to London, into a house of four smelly rockers (her brother’s band) and got her first job in the music industry…”

And this is from “unamazing disgrace” via the Crimea board. The clip outa the Sun. Thanks :o )
