DJ for 50+ years this year. Started with equipment made in school woodwork classes with my school chum Colin Hood! Went and asked for a job at the Central R&B Club in Gillingham in 1972 (I saw nothing to lose) and got the job as the warm up jock to Satch Patterson & Dave 'Mungo' Parks... and never looked back. Worked many if not all of the Medway Nightclubs over the next 15 years. Got a reputation for playing good soul imports as soon as they were released. Joined EMI in 1975 and then RCA for 1 year in 1983 doing promotion work. Always kept the jocking up and worked through agencies right up until 2008. After a life changing few years resulting in the loss of my beautiful wife Jo to the big 'C', I was encouraged to come back to broadcasting by a good friend in May 2021, doing a regular Wednesday afternoon show SOUL CONNECTIONS, playing soul music from the past, present and future. I am loving discovering new soul music and artists and bringing their work to the ears of my listeners.
Music connects our souls and should brings joy to our hearts, that's why I have always loved it. That's what I want my listeners to feel.
