What radio experience did you have bfore you joined Solar?

Before I had the pleasure of joining the Solar Radio Family I was fronting a show every Tuesday for 2 years for ‘The Ground Radio’. I also did a few Southport Radio shows for Starpoint Radio in the mid 90’s.

What is/are your main criteria in choosing records for airplay?

First, and foremost it’s got to be good music – and what I know would uplift and make my listeners appreciate the vibe.

Why would you recommend Solar to a listener?

There is no other station like Solar Radio. It has established itself as the leading music station for all genres of beautiful soul music with many years of musical knowledge. Each DJ has a different perspective in their shows which creates a great mixture of musical diversity.

Which other DJs do you admire and why?

Greg Edwards
Robbie Vincent
Peter Young
Terry Jones

Their knowledge is second to none! I blame them for making me spend so much money on records!

What do you do to relax?

Enjoying quality time with my family, listening to music of course. And I’m a dap hand at cooking.
