BBC Radio Sheffield launches a new Monday evening show tonight with local DJs TDX Campbell, DJ-LS and Guzzy.

The Sauce will bring an urban flavour to BBC Radio Sheffield, with guests and fresh sounds from the streets of the Steel City. The first edition sees Sheffield musician Harry Brown and vocalist Nicole Marie join the trio of DJs to talk music and hitting a million streams on Spotify.

The Sauce was developed when producer Jenny Eells met TDX Campbell, DJ-LS and Guzzy at a debate about the rise of gun and knife crime in the city.

She said: “I am so excited and proud to be producing The Sauce. The trio wanted to connect with BME communities in Sheffield and open the door to a whole new audience.

“The show is delivered in a unique style which is like eavesdropping from the barbershop chair. Think pirate radio – with more punch, polish and panache!”      

Katrina Bunker, Managing Editor at BBC Radio Sheffield, added “The Sauce is a really exciting addition to our new local evening schedule.

“I’m really proud that we’re able to help different communities have a bigger voice in our area, it’s such an important part of what we do in BBC local radio. BBC Radio Sheffield very much belongs to local audiences and it’s great to be giving new and exciting talent the chance to showcase what they can do.”
