Guy Garvey takes over Tram announcements for BBC Music Day

For the third year running BBC Music Day takes over the tram announcements in Manchester with another iconic artist from the city.

This year Manchester legend, Elbow lead singer and BBC Radio 6 Music presenter, Guy Garvey, lends his distinctive voice to entertain passengers on BBC Music Day on Thursday 26th September at 93 stops across Greater Manchester.

In 2017 Shaun Ryder twisted his melon for Manchester Metrolink and in 2018 the real thing Lisa Stansfield was in charge of the tannoy.

Guy’s announcements this year reflect some of his favourite places in a guide to the city and its famous musical connections and heritage.

Hear two of Guy's announcements on this site, and if you want to hear more make sure you head to a tram stop in Manchester from 7am on Thursday 26th September.
