Dj Dubz Dubtastic - Dubzy's Soul & Riddims ShowHello, Thank you for spending the time to read my biography i wish you a warm welcome from this Premier Radio Station "Starpoint Radio" and a special thank you for tuning in and making the whole experience a pleasurable one. My name is Peter but most call me Dubzy, I love my vinyl which consists of a wide range of genres of which I enjoy playing mostly uplifting Soul, Funk, R&B, House along with a passion for Lovers Riddims & Reggae, in general dance music intended to get you all up shaking your groove tings. Most of my vinyl ranges from the 1970's through and beyond 2000's it's still growing consisting mainly of 80's & 90's old skool, Imports, White Labels & Lovers Rock-Reggae Riddims. I remember back in the day carrying my mums (Shhhh) ghetto blaster around with friends listening to the next big track via pirate radio, spending my hard earned to buy them from our local record shops in London. I had the pleasure in my youth of listening to pirate radio stations like Radio Invicta, Horizon, Solar, LWR, Kiss FM, CruiseFM and of course Starpoint Radio with the likes of Robbie Vincent, Paul'Trouble' Anderson, Trevor Nelson, Greg Edwards, Scott James, Ian Dee, Jazzie B, Norman Jay, Richie Rich and Dave‘Roots' Rodigan were all big influences for me. Must say a huge shout to Carl, Steve, Mark and Ed for letting me be part of the team, I get such a buzz from playing my music here on Starpoint Radio.
Elle P - The Starpoint Vinyl Centric ShowElle was never really interested in the kudos of being a DJ and she doesn't take herself too seriously - she just loves music and vinyl….and she's genuinely interested in other people who have the same passion for music as her, whatever genre and what makes them tick, which is why she thinks, ended up persueing and loving the interviewing element within her radio shows ………. She says "looking back, I've always had a love for music. I used to drive my mum nuts in my early teens blasting out old Motown, Soul, Funk…….. She could never understand it - she hardly ever played music and not at my type of volume!" From there she moved on to loving hip-hop at some stage in the mid to late 80's and totally loved the scene. The cutting and scratching fascinated her- and still does. But going to a rave somewhere in London early in 1990 was the catalyst. Finding herself in some disused building with dance music playing at a very loud volume with loads of other sweaty people - She LOVED IT!!!! Infact couldn't get enough of it! She loved it so much, she managed to get a guy she knew to teach her how to mix. As it turned out- she was quite good at it. She has various collections of house, funk, disco, soul, hip-hop, old rave, DnB and now jazz too and plenty of other random stuff. All on vinyl. She loves to go digging for tunes - and sometimes, in some very dusty places. When she plays out, she loves to do sets that are really eclectic, that take you on a musical journey. She loves playing on vinyl. But admits that the new technology with virtual vinyl obviously has its plus points, especially if you are going on a plane to do the gigs! "I have moved over to the dark side and brought a controller recently - its actually been great" - She never thought she'd say that…. She trained to be a sound engineer and worked as one for years all over the country with various professional bands. She has DJ'd at numerous venues around Bournemouth & Southampton, loads of different festivals and she did a few Notting Hill Carnivals back in the day. She is employed to teach media and audio production at an FE college in the South of England and freelances with www.bass2face.net. Elle has been involved with- and produced a number of different radio shows both on line and FM over the past 10 years and interviewed a plethora of household musical names- and now she comes to Starpoint- for an exclusive Starpoint edition of her new weekly show Vinyl Centric.
Gary Van den Bussche - Gold Soul ShowGary Van den Bussche makes a return to radio with Starpoint radio.

Kevin O'Brien Presenter - The Morning SoulcialI'm a true Essex boy now living in Scotland just over the English border, I was 13 years old when I first heard Otis Redding sing "Love Man", from that moment on I was hooked. I would lie in bed at night with my transistor radio listening to people like Otis, James Brown, Diana Ross & the Supremes, The Four Tops on stations like Radio Luxemburg. I also listened to pirate stations like Radio Caroline, Invicta, DBC, Kiss FM, In fact any station that played good soul music. My DJ career began at 16 when my mother (bless her) moved me from Essex to where I thought was the middle of nowhere "Somerset" I decided then I needed a mobile disco, I bought it in pieces to save purchase tax, from DJ Electronics in Southend. "I was the first mobile DJ in Somerset". I booked my own halls and charged on the door, that was 1972. After a couple of years I started working in clubs around the country. My influence in DJ'ing came from Chris Hill who had a residency at The Gold Mine on Canvey Island. At that time there really wasn't many DJ's playing soul music and working the audience like he did. Over the years I have worked with many Radio 1 DJs from the 70's & 80's. Noel Edmonds, Emperor Rosko, Steve Wright, Dave Lee Travis, Kid Jensen, Peter Powell, Mike Read & Simon Bates, the list goes on. I have also been blessed to have compared and worked with artists like Candi Staton, The Real Thing, Carl Douglas, Edwin Starr, The Foundations, The Stylistics, The Three Degrees, Dorothy Moore, Melba Moore, Tina Charles, Randi Crawford, Heatwave and many more. I decided to close my record boxes in the mid 90's. But in 2012 my appetite was re-generated by a DJ friend from the south of England who came to visit me here in Scotland, we spent the weekend getting very drunk, talking music & playing all the classics. He also introduced me to a lot of new material he brought with him. This made me realise I should be working in radio. Since then I have presented for various radio stations including Radio Northumberland. Castle FM (Edinburgh), Jazz and Bossa Radio in (Puerto Rico) & Soul Central Radio (London) I'm now honoured to be able to broadcast here on Starpoint Radio Tues - Weds - Thursday's mornings from 9 - 11am on The Morning Soulcial. Check in and say hello, I'm convinced you will like it.
Laura Jackson - Don't stop the MusicSorry, no DJ Profile has been made for this particular DJ. Check back again later.
Mark Chappel - The A To Zee of SoulMark's real interest in music began in 1975 (aged 14) when one night it was announced that no music would be played in his youth club's music room, due to the regular guys being on holiday. An avid table tennis player for his county at the time, ‘ping pong' was all he ever thought about, until that fateful night… Young Mark offered his help by going home to retrieve a few personal tunes & upon return proceeded to ‘find' himself. A little older & wiser, local nightclub Sweeneys took him on board as a warm up & as he saw, was a master stroke, technically under age (over 18's night) he maintained the position for 4 years gaining valuable experience & when the regular DJ left because of work commitments, he was asked to carry the night forward. While @ Sweeneys he decided with the help of his mentor (Steve Scott aka Quasimodo) to become a mobile DJ. The year now was 1979 & soon radio came his way via local community station Radio Basildon on which he helped produce a few shows. Stints on hospital radio soon followed along with a guest spot on the now defunct Essex Radio & a show on pirate radio. Mark has played 'em all.. clubs, pubs, bars, weekenders, radio & he's done more private functions than he cares to remember. But he's loved every minute of it "it's the greatest feeling in the world to see people on a dance floor making shapes to something your playing." 40 years behind the decks & still spinning the good grooves, including his popular A To Zee of Soul radio show & podcast, now at its new home here at Starpoint Radio.
Nigel Fox - Late Night SoulNigel Fox started back in 1984 as a mobile DJ with his Nightlife Roadshow covering Surrey , Sussex, and London playing at a number of large venues for private clients and corporate functions.

Phil B - Saturday @ 10I started my first ever internet radio show in 2004 broadcasting live from Croydon, Surrey. Old skool flavors that take you back as well as R&B and the slow jamz that will always be remembered. also spend every other month weekend in Amsterdam, Milkweg for the exclusive R&B nights they have out there with special guests DJ'S and artists also. i love Old Skool and as i'm from the era, now the kids of today are listening to what we did 20 odd years ago. so why not join me every Saturday from 10-12pm on StarPoint Radio
Phil Levene - Eclectic JazzHaving been bitten by the record collecting bug during his early teens, Phil was persuaded to DJ at local youth clubs and parties. His first major gig was for the launch of a new record label and eventually found himself moving on to the 'Goldmine Club' in Essex, where the small back bar became a regular Jazz room. In turn this lead to his making respected and regular contributions to various gigs across the South East of England. Djing residencies included Southend's 'Back to the tracks' (7 years). 'Monday Nights' at Wag, London's Jazz Cafe (one of the resident DJ's for over 8 years) Point 101 (4 years) and the 'Hi-hat' at the Blue Note and the Jazz Cafe (10 years). Guest spots have included the now legendary Sunday session 'Talkin' loud' at Dingwalls, The 'Jazz rooms' in Brighton and 'Southport Weekender'. Groove Sanctuary at Madame JoJo's and upstairs at Ronnie Scotts. Plus countless one off events across Europe and the UK including the Cork Jazz Festival (Ireland), The Latin Beats Festival, (Holland) and the Montreaux Jazz festival, (Switzerland). Phil joined the now defunct but influential Soul 24/7 internet radio station on the day it launched and continued with his weekly show until it's untimely closure 5 years later. Presenting 'Eclectic Jazz' for Starpoint Radio has provided a much welcomed opportunity for Phil to explore and pull together the threads of the various styles of music that have been inspired and influenced by the genre of jazz. Phil's passion for music has resulted in an ever expanding collection of Soul, Funk, Jazz, Latin, Brazilian, Disco, Afro Beat, Broken Beats, Nu-jazz and music that defies being pigeon-holed. Pulling this rich mixture of joyful sounds together is both a challenge and a pleasure for Phil. www.eclecticjazz.com
Ray Ali - Underground RepairsRay, simply loves Boogie and US Garage. This is reflected in his show which he calls, 'Underground Repairs', which as the name suggests encapsulates the purism ,ingenuity and rawness in dance music. His inspiration stems from the likes of Phil Allen, Dezzi D and Steve Devonne on the Boogie Tip. He basically sees US Garage as the natural progression of disco and the early 80s sound. He keenly acknowledges the inspiration of the New York sound from the 90s and although the second hour of his shows is predominantly upfront , tribute is still paid to the tunes that spanned that era. So expect lots of diversity in the mix where Ray is accompanied with Mo Silvase, his long time House Buddy.
Steve Collins - Steve Collins in the AfternoonSteve's passion for Soul Music started at a very young age. Whilst still at school, Steve was frequently visiting venues like the Hammersmith Odeon, to see such artists as Frankie Beverley & Maze, Alexander O'Neil and Pieces of a Dream...His Radio career began during the late 1980's. Presenting his Soulful sounds on the popular London Pirate Radio Stations, Joy Radio and Radio Chicago. Steve has very recently returned to his home town of London, after spending ten years living and working in Spain. Never far away from his love of Soul music and Radio, he was a regular on the Costa Blanca's Mercury FM & Big FM. You can catch now catch Steve here on Starpoint Radio, every Saturday afternoon between 1-3pm .
Steve King - Soulful Sounds with Steve KingSteve King started in radio with his Nyte Flyte show for IBC Manchester (The Illegal Broadcasting Company). The show ran from 1987 till 1990, and concentrated on Steve's first and last love in music, soul. In 1991 Steve started a new show for IBC called, We're Only Here For The Beer, which he co-presented with Quantice (Liam Fitton). Two guys, who's passion for great music was matched with banter that had the audience eating out of their hands. The show fast gained itself a cult following in and around the Manchester area, for its wacky style of presenting, along with playing classic cuts from electro, hip hop, soul and funk. This brought Steve to the attention of Duncan Smith, who at the time had his own show with Steve Quirk (The Dream Team) along with being the program controller at Sunset Radio. In 1993, Duncan offered Steve a Sunday morning slot at Sunset. The shows focus was on the best of days producers / songwriter in black music. Today Steve has a show on Internet Stations based in Manchester, England and Saltlake City, USA. Soulful Sounds combines the great sounds from the 80s & 90s including Steve's very own slowjam mixes and interviews.

Curly CJ - The Sunday Soul AffairI started deejaying about 15 years ago in the early nineties, when I was lucky enough to be asked to DJ alongside the legend that is Dr Bob Jones,at his Blues and Soul award winning weekly club night called The Surgery". I became a resident at the club, and had the pleasure of Deejaying not only with Bob,but with his many weekly guests who included Gilles Peterson,Patrick Forge,Mark Webster,Steve Hobbs,Kev Beadle,the list went on... great days!!After the Surgery healed it's last patient, I went on to play at the infamous "Blue Note" club in the now trendy Hoxton area of East London, where myself,Stevie Cee and Baby Browning were residents for 3 great years doing a weekly Sunday Afternoon gig called "The Sunday Soul Affair". Rare Groove,The Sunday Papers,West Indian Food, and of course the obligatory continental strength lager made the "Sunday Soul Affair" a gig that many people fondly remember,not least me! After the Blue Note closed down, I went on to another 3 year residency in Londons West End at Point 101. Nowadays I don't play out as much, but certainly enjoy doing the occaisional gig such as Chi-soul down in Chichester, and Monumental Soul in London. As for the radio, I have been on air now for about the same amount of time. Cutting my broadcasting teeth in the early nineties on one of East London's Soul Pirate radio stations called Groove FM. After Groove was eventually busted for the last time, I went on legal radio for the first time with Active FM,a soul radio station based in Romford.Graveyard shift radio in Romford, what a winner!! I eventually left Active FM to take a weekly show on Solar Radio for a few years, and then after misbehaving,was lucky enough to be asked to take my "Soul Affair" show to Starpoint Radio. This wasn't my first time on Starpoint, I did several RSL broadcasts, and had many memorable sessions up at the Southport Weekenders where Starpoint was the weekender radio station. So thats it, now you know a bit more about me, and how I have come DJ on Starpoint. I present a fortnightly show, that is broadcast live on a Tuesday evening between 19.00/21.00. The show is called the "Soul Affair". And I hope you enjoy listening ,as much as I enjoy doing it. Curly CJ...........not so much a man............as a set of initials.
Chris ”The Shirt” Elliott - The Reggae Vybe ShowChris "The Shirt" Elliott was brought up in SE London on a diet of Reggae,Soul and Jim Reeves (blame his Jamaican dad for that one). He started playing on internet radio a few years back on the original Sunrisefm and since then his stations have included the now defunct Vinyl Morpher Radio, Platinum Grooves Radio of which he was part owner, and of late CruiseFM. He has been known to hit the floors on various dance floors at Soul Nights and of course the infamous Caister Soul Weekenders but as his got older its more of a crawl rather than a spring. Shirtys dress sense (loud shirts) and choice of football teams (Millwall) have had people questioning his sanity, but his choonz are good so we let him in lol. Look out for "Shirtys" Reggae Vybe Show which will consist of anything from Lovers Rock,Dancehall,Ska or even Roots Reggae here on Starpoint Radio and hope you enjoy them.

Gary Hawk - The Soul CollectionMy interest in jazz funk and soul music stems back to the very late seventies and early eighties venturing to clubs, the likes of Flicks in Dartford and Stage 3 on the isle of Sheppey Flicks by the early 80s was one of the most popular clubs in the country, I remember the queues to get in were always a mile long Only recently over the last couple of years i decided to take my interest further after listening to various soul internet radio stations, in April 2014 i had the opportunity of becoming an internet radio presenter myself, on Soul legends Radio where i started a weekly show on a Wednesday evening the Wednesday Soul Collections, then towards the end of the year changing it to the Monday Soul Collections on a Monday evening and still going up to date The year 2015 has seen me progress into playing out at live venues which I hope to expand on in the future It's a pleasure to be part of the Starpoint Radio Team and my intention is to share my passion in the music I play, with you the listeners.
Lawless aka Gayle Dumont - The Rum Shop SessionLawless aka Gayle Dumont hails from south west London where she grew up, one of 7 (middle child) surrounded by varying musical influences. One of her older brothers was into Studio One, heavy dub plates and sound systems, the other was into his disco 45's. Big sister was into punk and rock (bands like Bahaus & Southern Death Cult). Mum was listening to Dionne Warwick, Dolly Parton and Grover Washington Jnr. She was always grateful for this varied musical exposure and thinks that this in part, helped shape her first love of Hip Hop & Rare Groove and all things soulful with a dash of Elton John thrown in for good measure (guilty pleasure is "Daniel" by EJ).......but enough about that She always wanted to be a deejay, hatching up all sorts of hair brained schemes and plans (even had a stage name DJ Hyper G). Collected lots of vinyl (Blue Bird records was a second home in the late 80's). But marriage and raising a family put paid to those dreams (as well as Mum getting rid of her vinyl......a sore subject that I don't care to discuss......we are on speaking terms now). She listened to all the pirate radio stations, LWR, Horizon to name a few as well as Radio Jackie & Radio 1 (occasionally Radio Luxembourg on a Sunday afternoon) After a 10 year hiatus, Gayle was itching to re-enter the soul scene. It was through a soul weekender that her love for all things soulful was reignited and she has never looked back. She dj's on another well known online station and is a promoter/DJ for Rum Shop HQ where she runs a weekend alongside Hugh Haughton, Mac StLewis and Pete Precise called "Licks: Rhythm Assembly" now in it's sixth year. Has DJ'd at Bless The Funk, Hayling Island (radio room), Family Affair & Sunny Hunny, Clacton, Soul Sessions, Universal Soul, CampSoul, Rum Shop on Manoeuvres, All Souled Up, Grown & Sexy In Antigua, Soul In The Algarve and Soul Village, Lloret de Mar and she's about to debut at Sun & Soul in Paphos, Cyprus 2017.

The show has evolved with Risky Riscardo and Trevor "Soulflavas" Martin joining Kunle and Mark Collison, on rotation, every Saturday morning between 09:00 - 11:00. Kunle was the promoter at Bournemouth's popular "Confessions" club nights, mixing upfront RnB with a smattering of real soul. Mark made his name in the alternative (Soul/Funk) room in the 90's at the ‘Lollipop' club nights, where trendy London welcomed the concept of a two room club mixing House and Soul in separate rooms. At the time you would find him spinning at the Iceni, Jazz Juice and the Time Bar, educating the crowd with his love of real soul and jazz. Risky Riscardo is a professional clubber with a smile on his face - he knows his music! Trevor Martin has hosted TGR's Thursday night 'Soulflavas', spreading his knowledge to the more discerning listeners in SE London/NW Kent and those on line.

After more than two years at GMR as it became known, Mike left the BBC in 1989 to set up Sunset Radio and take up the post of Managing Director and Programme Controller. The station was aimed at the ethnic minorities in Manchester, playing soul and dance music during the day and featuring specialist ethnic programming through the evenings. Mike had been planning such a station for a number of years and the success of the station was amply demonstrated when Sunset Radio achieved a 10% reach in it's first JICRAR. The station's programming was generally accepted as one of the most exciting on radio in the North West and according to local listings publication City Life:- "Sunset Radio is still by far the most interesting station in the city". Mike Shaft left Sunset in 1990 following a fundamental disagreement with some members of the Board about the direction that the station was taking. Mike then worked at a number of stations in the North West and North East. These included Marcher Sound, Piccadilly Gold, Piccadilly Key 103 and Wear FM. During this time, Mike also co-presented a television series for Central Television, Birmingham called ‘One World'. In 1993 Mike was approached by Julian Allitt to join the Bay in Lancaster as a Presenter and Head of Promotions. Mike was part of the management team that achieved one of the most successful launches in Independent Radio history. After some months on air, Mike then became Head of External Affairs.
