DJ Profile Biography

I bought my first 7″ single (Archie Bell and the Drells – Soul City Walk) in 1974 and have been digging the crates both in the UK and across USA for the black stuff ever since.

My early DJing influences were Chris D Smth (lived in Leg End!) and Chris Brown, whilst attending The Rio, Belvedere, Royalty and Caister etc events. My 1st gig was in Newbury in 1980 and I continue to run the regular Redhousesoul event (which is now in its 17th year) in the local area.

My Sunday evening ‘Vinyl Preservation Society’ Radio Show (8 -10pm) on Soulpower Radio is now well into its 3rd year where I play Soul, Jazz and a bit of Latin.

Top Artists include David Ruffin, Lou Rawls, The Crusaders, Mario Biondi, Bobbi Humphreys, Johnny Taylor, John Klemmer, Poncho Sanchez, The Dells and Richie Coles.

A regular on Rio Reunion Gigs, this will be my 3rd year playing at Campsoul, where, when not on the decks, you will find me “Hailing the Ale” or somewhere on site on a tiny talced up dance floor!
