The nineties dance music DJ Stu Allan has died. A year ago, he was told he had cancer. On Thursday evening, the producer’s friends and family told the world that he had died.
On his official Twitter page, there was a sad message that said, “It is with great sadness that we let you know that Stu passed away today.”
“Soon, we’ll have a memorial event to honor Stu’s life, where we can all remember how great it was. Please tell us what you remember about Stu in the comments below.”
Stu may have worked in Manchester in the 1980s and 1990s for Piccadilly Radio, which later became Greatest Hits Radio, and Key 103, which is now Hits Radio.
In a tribute tonight, he was called a “90s music icon” and said to have been influential in the house music industry and other scenes of those decades.
The post about his death sparked a flood of tributes. For example, one person wrote: “Absolute legend. A huge loss for the worlds of music and raving.”
Someone else tweeted: “Very sad news indeed. Thanks to Stu, I had a lot of fun nights and memories at different clubs.” One person said, “I’ve been to many house raves while listening to his sets.”
In another homage, it said: “A caring and kind man who helped me and a lot of other DJs in Manchester get started. A broadcaster with natural talent. A first. I’ll miss you, Stu.”
Joel Ross, who works in radio and TV, said: “When I started working at Key 103 breakfast in 2000, Stu was our voice-over because he was cool and we weren’t. Rest in peace mate “.
Anton Powers of Kiss FM tweeted: “He was the reason I wanted to become a DJ. I always listened to his Key 103 shows. People say you should never meet your heroes, but that wasn’t true with Stu.”
Justin Robertson, another TV host, said: “He showed me so much great music that I can’t remember it all. I first heard the sounds of hip hop and house at his shows. Perfect choice and inspiration.”
Others remembered listening to Stu on the radio when they were younger. One fan said this evening, “His show was one of the few constants in my life as a teen raver.”
Another person wrote on Twitter, “I wasn’t old enough to go to raves, but I used to record your mixes on tape and play them over and over until the tape broke. Manchester legend.”
Another person said, “He’s a great DJ, but he’s a good person first and foremost.” They also said that the late radio host helped shape a lot of their favorite music.
