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

Records that have a balance of “VIBES” and Feel Good, that
jump out at me, over the days in advance of the show.
I walk in my record storage and rediscover the moments
of the past, my musical journey, these are the moments, ultimately
i want the listener to share.

Why would you recommend Solar to a listener?

Because it has a good variation of music under the soul
banner and good presenters.

Which other DJs do you admire and why?

Robbie Vincent
Jeff Young
(Robbie & Jeff have a great deal of knowledge of the music industry,
both a similar in their presentation. Not surprising as Jeff is Robbie’s

Giles Petersen
(Giles on the other hand is a very progressive DJ always looking ahead of the curve
of new music)

How would you like to be remembered by a listener?

Fun, musically interesting! and a good sense of humour!

Playing vinyl in my living room!!!
