DJ Dave Onetone
I first started DJ’ing around 1979. In 1982 I bought my first Technics Sl1200 Mk2 turntable playing all things funky. By 1989 I moved to the Canaries playing just about any dance music known to man and by 1994 I was back in the United Kingdom playing classic JazzFunk, Soul and Disco music, later turning my hand to recording my own tracks, At the start of the Millenium I had taken a break from DJ’ing only to return about Fifteen years later. It seems I have now picked up from where I started by playing Jazz Funk and Soul. I'am also a regular on the London Soul Train Cruise playing the Anthems.
DJ Warren Jay
I've been a DJ off and on for the last 20 years, but I must say the last 4 years have been the most exciting for me. I've played gigs up and down the country from Preston to London and with a host of great DJs and artists including Kenny Thomas, Mica Paris, and Natasha Watts. My show is The Lunch Club and is a mix of Old Skool to Neo Soul from the early eighties right up to the independent artists of today. So join me every Saturday for the Lunch Club from midday and if you miss it you can catch the repeat On Mixcloud.com
DJ Darron Brown
My Brother was a massive influence on my musical taste being 4 years older than me and heavily into the early Soul and Funk scene of the late 70’s and early 80’s. When I reached 17 and got my license then it was my turn. Following legends such as Chris Hill, Robbie Vincent & Froggy among many more and the pirate stations of the day such as JFM and Horizon. Like all good funksters you follow this music all your life and even within this genre everyone has a different taste. I am relatively new to the ‘DJ’ scene presenting on a local community station for last 2 years
DJ Robbie J
I have been a soul boy and DJ since the early 80s, playing in wine bars and pubs around Essex, my friends both called Steve were instrumental in getting me into the soul scene and becoming a DJ, both are sadly no longer with us. My early influences were the Brit Funk scene and the jazz funk coming out of America ,and most weekends I would be trawling the records shops for new vinyl My love for all things Soul Music has only grown over the years and I am now lucky enough to be playing the music I love on the airwaves, I like to blend the classics, with rare groove, b-sides and album tracks as there are so many great choons out there , that get no or little airplay and of course the new soul which is still being produced, you can catch me on a Friday with the Drive Time show 4-6pm and Saturdays Soul Motion 2-4pm and join my Facebook group Soul Motion Radio Show for details of Soul Nites I run in Essex/Herts,

DJ Ian B
I first started DJing around the age of 12 at my local community centre, fell in love with soul music and never turned back. I started collecting vinyl and moved onto dancing and DJing in clubs and bars around the East Midlands up to my early twenties. I then took a break to focus on raising a family whilst always adding to my collection. Ten years ago, after converting all my vinyl to digital. I started djing in my local pub, moving onto weddings and parties. In the last couple of years I have put together a new sound system and am fully enjoying my DJing again. Soul & funk music is my passion and I am blessed to have grown up DJing in the 80s, the best era of soul & funk music.
DJ Simon Robertson

I feel privileged to be presenting on a station such as Soul Central Radio and sharing my passion playing great music to its listeners.
DJ Andy B
My love for Soul music started back in 1977 and the first 12" I bought was Shame by Evelyn Champagne King. As my collection grew blowing nearly all my wages each week on records. Started DJ'ing around 1982 and in 85 I met the legendary Froggy who was doing weekly slots at my local nightspot and he kindly taught me how to mix vinyl. Over the years I've played to packed venues all over Luton and Dunstable entertaining the masses with my style of music. Started doing presenting on radio in 2018 and have been with Soul Central Radio for over 2 years and loving it. DJ Andy B
DJ John Salisbury
A soul boy since the early eighties (stay press trousers, piped jeans, Pringle Jumper, and the rest), my soulful journey started off listening to the likes of George Benson, Earth Wind and Fire and the mighty Maze. Back in the days when you were paid on a Friday, my wages were spent by Monday, all on good old vinyl. Growing up in Stevenage, and after reading a copy of my mates, brothers, Blues and Soul magazine, my eyes started to open. the bug as they say had truly bit. my roots started firmly with 80’s soul, along with Brit and Jazz Funk. The aim is just to play good music, stuff I would set up on a playlist if I were at home in sunny Cambridgeshire, enjoying a glass or two of red on a Sunday evening. As it is a privilege to be able to play the music I love, to a radio audience.”
DJ Eric Owenson
It all began in 1978 when I first met the late great Tom Wilson. Tom took me under his wing and showed me how to become a competent DJ. Whilst training as an electrician, every bit of spare time was filled working with Sweet Inspiration mobile discos where I learned how to do a range of gigs from weddings, engagement parties, working pubs and clubs etc. I was also given the opportunity to assist Tom to run Oscars Soul Club in Edinburgh. I also did a couple of shows on Pirate Radio.
I worked as a DJ until 1991 but my passion and love of jazz, funk soul and disco never dwindled during this time and I continually added to my vast vinyl collection.
The highlight of my musical career was meeting Rick James in Los Angeles in 1981 whilst staying at the same hotel. A totally unforgettable experience.
It's a great opportunity to be given a chance to share my love and knowledge of music with a radio audience.
