My love and passion for soul music started in my late teens, listening to Horizon Radio and Radio London. I got my opportunity to become a DJ in the early 80’s, mainly doing friends parties and charity events for the local Fire Station.
I finally got my big break when I was asked to become a resident Thursday night DJ in a local wine bar and was lucky enough to DJ on a night when several Sun newspaper page 3 girls came in.
I spent many hours trawling through vinyl at my local record shop, Trumps and many weekends in London going through new music in Groove records. I was lucky enough to meet the late great Steve Walsh at a nightclub in North London one Sunday, he invited me into the DJ booth and was more than happy to share his knowledge and advice.
I continued to DJ well into the 90’s, before taking a break whilst living in Bristol at the time music was drastically changing. However, my love for all things soul music has never wandered.
In the early 2000’s I became one of the resident DJ’s in a nightspot in Epping, where I was asked if I was interested in joining the Caister Soul Weekend line-up!
I am now lucky enough to be playing the music I love on the airwaves, where I like to blend the classics with rare groove besides and album tracks, there are so many great choons out there, that get little or no airplay.
Join me on my ‘Soul Motion’ show on Thursday’s from 14.00hrs to 16.00hrs UK time.
