Not to be confused with the late Sean Rowley from the band, Cause And Effect.

Sean Rowley is a disc jockey on BBC London 94.9 and BBC Radio Kent.[1][2]

Rowley devised the Guilty Pleasures concept as a slot on his BBC London radio show,[3] to attempt to 'reclaim' songs that are viewed as "slightly shameful to love". His club Guilty Pleasures takes place at KOKO in Camden Town,[4] and has spawned two compilation albums, a Sunday afternoon radio show on BBC London 94.9, and a television show on ITV1 hosted by Fearne Cotton on which established performers will perform cover versions of Guilty Pleasures favourites.[5]

He is the man on the cover of the Oasis album (What's the Story) Morning Glory?.[4]
