Hear Gareth Brooks' playlist

About Gareth Brooks:
Gareth Brooks has been at Xfm for over six years. He started out at Xfm London, and after three successful years he was asked to be part of the opening team when the station opened its doors in Manchester in 2006. A complete music aficionado, Gareth is the weekend breakfast DJ for Xfm and his witty banter, distinctive voice and irreverent take on life has earned him a large and loyal fan base. He has also built a strong robust reputation DJ-ing at festivals and exclusive after show parties across the UK and Europe.

I'm into all sorts of music. Obviously I'm quite keen on indie, but I'm also very much into dance music and hip-hop.

Ian Browns 'Golden Gaze'. It was the last tune I played on Xfm London, before moving back to Manchester in 2006.
