Former fashion linchpin and all-round legend; Ming, delivers the latest sound instalment for Stan Radio, with his 5pm mix.
Ming has been a friend of Stan for many years, from back in the days when he used to run arguably Birmingham’s best menswear store ‘Atoo’. For people in the midlands and beyond who liked clothes, the good stuff, it was THE place to go. Many friendships and communities were formed because of that store.
Fast forward to today and Atoo is no more, they sadly closed the doors for the last time in 2014. It’s not all bad news though, as following the closure of the store Ming changed industries completely and after subsequent residencies, street food pop ups and a lot of labour, he opened Eat Vietnam; An incredible restaurant in Birmingham’s Stirchley area , offering noodles, curry & stir-fry, plus shared plates & other Vietnamese fare.
Alongside his culinary explorations Ming has always been a huge fan of good music, both listening and playing, so it only made sense that we ask him to give us a little taster of what he’s digging at the moment.
So here we have it, a 1 hour mix of obscure gems and low key bangers and as he says ‘Music you can listen to whatever the hour of the day or night”.
Thank you Ming.
