Oct 06, 11:01 PM

“I’m just very, very raw, real and true, but sometimes a little bit too dark and a little bit too naughty for people. And I think that is a Mancunian thing.” Happy Mondays singer Rowetta Satchell, needs little introduction. Her voice is the synonymous sound of Manchester from the late 80’s right through to today.

“I’m just very, very raw, real and true, but sometimes a little bit too dark and a little bit too naughty for people. And I think that is a Mancunian thing.”

Happy Mondays singer Rowetta Satchell, needs little introduction.  Her voice is the synonymous sound of Manchester from the late 80’s right through to today.  

Born and raised in North Manchester, the spirit of the region runs through Rowetta’s veins -  from her love of Manc humour and cool weather - to the most bizarre chippy order ever!

Join Lisa Morton as she hears about the resilience that saw Rowetta leave a women’s aid refuge with two children, aged 21, to tour the world with the Happy Mondays. You’ll also hear about the women in Rowetta’s childhood, who supported and nurtured her talent for singing.

Your host, Lisa Morton, started PR company Roland Dransfield in 1996, one month after the fateful IRA bomb that tore apart the city centre.  From that point, the business, and its team members, have been involved in helping to support the creation of Modern Manchester – across regeneration, business, charity, leisure and hospitality, sport and culture.


To celebrate the 25 years that Roland Dransfield has spent creating these bonds, Lisa is gathering together some of her Greater Mancunian ‘family’ and will be exploring how they have created their own purposeful relationships with the best place in the world.
