Alfasound

Very sad news last night about the passing of Denise Johnson. She sang on quite a few Alfa packages and actually lived very close to St. Martin's. A true Manchester music legend, an infectious smile and what a voice! Your voice will always be truly appreciated & you will be missed Denise x

  • Saw the general news story, but didn't know she had done work for Alfasound.

    Any particular package examples of her work?

  • I posted the same question on Facebook but never got an answer, but can’t recall her on any of the Alfa jingles

    Saddened by the news of Denise Johnson last night. We'd worked with Denise on a number of projects and she was always such a lovely person to work with! An amazing voice and a Manchester legend with stories to match. She actually lived close to our studios in Sale. Thinking of all her friends and family. You'll be missed Denise x"

  • Sorry to hear about Denise's passing. Which Alfasound packages was she featured on? Maybe even the stuff produced for Radio in Ireland at the start of the 90's.
    I do remember the very excellent sheila gott who I always loved on ILR id's. I recall in particular her work on Viking..Stereo 102.7...viking gold, the 60s etc. I understand Sheila was also a performer on stage too? Anyone advise me of Sheila nowadays? Thanks Guys.
