Soul Steppin’

Tuesday 6 – 8PM

Like many I  started DJ’ing   in 1975, working on Mobile Disco’s. From 1975 to 1983  I learnt the trade the hard way DJ’ing at  Social Clubs, Weddings, Parties, and soon became one of Luton’s well known  Mobile DJ’s . In 1983 I  earned a break into the Nightclub Scene and became the Resident DJ of Shades Nightclub in Luton, after Shades, I joined  Reflections Nightclub / Hitchin, This led to a 6 year residency in which time, Reflections was acknowledged many times in Blues + Soul magazine, as one of the best Small Soul nightclubs outside of London ! In 1989 I  moved on from Relections and became the resident DJ in a Bedford Club called ( Winkles )  there a 3 year Residency followed, I became well known for playing upfront Soul + Funk. In latter years I held a residency at  Envy Nightclub in Luton, at this time I was also working with Chlitern Radio’s  Louie Martin , Myself + Louie ran a successful Soul Night in Luton for 5 years called Soul Academy! In November 2013 I Joined Secklow Sounds Radio 105.5 FM  in Milton Keynes, and began to host my show ( Soul Steppin )  this show has gained in popularity, with some 6,000 plus listens to the show over 3 Years, and listeners from the UK / America and South Africa ! At the end of 2016 I left Secklow 105.5 FM, and Joined Delite Radio in London, where I again presented my Soul Steppin show for nearly 2 years.

With a wealth of  some 40 years Knowledge in the Soul Music scene, I still enjoys playing out and feature at many Soul Events, Like Summer Soulstice,  and enjoy my Radio shows especially interacting with his ever growing group of followers !
