WHERE DID IT ALL START Laser Fm back in the year of 1989 sometime in August. I was in America at the time when I decided I wanted to be a dj or radio presenter, so when I came back to the UK I contacted Chicken George, he offered me some late night shows well we call it the GRAVE YARD SHIFTS.
After a while Laser Fm ran into problems and was taken over. The station was then renamed to Power Fm. The same thing happened again Powe Fm was taken over by a CONSORTIUM OF BUSINESS PEOPLE after experience problem. The station was renamed again to POW WAH Fm where I was appointed as the manager, the job was stressful but I enjoyed it.
POW WAH Fm soon closed down due to foolishness. After it closed down I was out for a year studying a MANAGEMENT COURSE, and managed to secure myself degree. During that time I joined another station UNITY which was owned and ran by IRE RANKS, but my studies took more priority so I took some time out off radio work. (Funny though I was still playing out hard)
On the 5th May 1998 Sting Fm was created/born, I was offered Sunday’s 12pm-2pm (still got it now).
Then I was offered a spot on UNIQUE FM in London and took up the opportunity straight away. London has a LOT and I mean a LOT to offer
DAYS OF SOUND SYSTEM Lets back track, while with LASER FM I joined LUVINJECTION.COM (1990-1991). This was all down to KING ZUKIE, respect goes out to him. There I met BIG JOHN, KING ZUKIE, BEAVER MILLITANT, CORPORAL BILLY and the boss MEXICAN. Week in week out we were playing out and I still had a radio show to after every blues we played at. We used to finish blues at bout 7am off load sound in garage and I would go on radio, where did I get the energy from?
As time went on I was getting my own work so would miss playing with LUV INJECTION on some occasions, at that time they were getting BIGGER & BIGGER. Getting more involved in sound clashes. At my peak I was out from Thursdays night's right thru till Mondays and still had a full time job and other things going on. I have played with sounds like:
Stone love - Jamaican sounds, Body Guard, Bass Odyssey, Saxon - London Sounds, Asha World Movement, Taurus Sound, Now Generation Birmingham Sound, Gemini Don, Rockers Road Show, Jus I Roadshow, Live Wire.
The list can go on, can't forget LUV INJECTION SOUND SYSTEM.
LET'S TALK CLUB TALK TONY BING gave me my first break inside the club scene in BIRMINGHAM. The club was called back then PAGODA PARK for those who remember it, I use to warm up the club before the main act came on in those days it was the CHIQUE SQUAD-Gauntie, Crazy G & Kenny B.
That was it then from then on more work came in Thursday nights was COAST 2 COAST
FINAL WORDS I AM NOT JUST A DJ I WOULD CLASS MYSELF AS AN ENTERTAINER,WITH A LARGE FOLLOWING IF THE VENUE IS RIGHT.I AM AN HOUSEHOLD NAME SOME ONE IN YOUR HOUSE MUST KNOW OF ME.I ENJOY PLAYING OUT ESPICIALLY IF THE CROWD IS FUN.
I WOULD LIKE TO PLAY IN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES LIKE AMERICA, JAMAICA, AFRICA, CANADA ETC (HINT)
MOST RESPECT GOING OUT TO ALL WHO HAVE SUPPORTED ME FROM THE YEAR 1989 AND ALL THOSE WHO ARE STILL SUPPORTING ME.KEEP IT REAL AND KEEP IT STRONG
MAY GOD BE WITH YOU ALL. Remember 1 thing EDUCATION ONESELF IS THE WAY FORWARD
