Conversations with Norman Jay MBE – Mister Good Times
Fane Productions are very proud to present legendary DJ Norman Jay MBE as you’ve never quite seen him before: away from his iconic decks and in conversation exploring his enthralling life story, as captured in his much-anticipated new memoir Mister Good Times, published by Dialogue on October 3rd.
Interviewed live on stage by some very special guest interviewers (to be announced) expect tales of his adventures interspersed with carefully selected tracks that defined each chapter of his personal history. From growing up as a black kid in a (largely white) working class world; of vivid, often violent, experiences on the football terraces; of Northern Soul nights, warehouse parties and illegal raves; of sound systems, the good and bad times of the Notting Hill carnival, the heady days of pirate radio, Rare Groove and the burgeoning British dance music scene; of how Jay became a central, formative figure within this colourful and vibrant milieu as it evolved from a tight-knit underground community to the global, hugely successful industry it is today.
With discussions on race, class, ambition and glamorous success, all set against the backdrop of a great social change, join us as we celebrate Norman Jay MBE, a man who has lived his life on his own terms and helped define a new British culture.
