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 Millennium 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 Danny Lane
Soul music, in all its forms, has been a big part of my life since as far back as I can remember. I was very fortunate to grow up in a musical household and in an area of South East London where to hear Soul most days was the norm. I quickly developed a love for this music especially the funk, groove and boogie sounds of the ‘70s, ‘80s, and early ‘90s. I’ve always enjoyed sharing the music I love and I’m both very glad and grateful to be doing just that on Soul Central Radio! Thank you for listening!

DJ Simon Bassline Smith
Simon Bassline Smith (who was adopted the middle name of ‘Bassline’ after destroying his fair share of sound system speakers & blues parties in the early 1980’s) He fell in love with music as a 16 year old, visiting record stores every Saturday to buy Funk Soul Electro, jazz, Boogie & early House records. The Derby-born youngster would also spend his weekends travelling up and down the country with mates to attend ‘all dayer parties’ where they’d put their breakdancing skills on full display. It was during one of these ritualistic missions that Bassline got his Djing big-break, by getting the chance to take command of the dex at Nottingham’s Rock City club, from there he played The Power House Birmingham, Ritzys Leeds before his first London break
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.
I’ve been a music fan since I can remember but really got into Jazz Funk and Soul in 1982. One of my mates older Brothers was true Funkateer, he really stepped up interest in music. we used to listen to music in his car and watch him do his jazz dancing. We went to clubs in Southend and a group of us did the Soul Weekenders in Prestatyn. I started racing motorbikes in 91 and didn’t focus on the music as much. In 2014 I decided to get back into music and rekindled my love of a good tune. We visited many Soul nights out and are regulars on the SCR Soul train Cruises as-well as the odd trip to sunnier climbs for a Soul holiday.

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 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.

My love of soul music started in the 70’s. I’ve been behind the decks for over 40 years now, started DJing in 1982 at youth club discos, moving on to private parties and weddings. I got the opportunity to present on Soul Pirate Radios from 1985 onwards, and have been presenting live radio and playing the music I love in pubs, clubs , weekenders and soul nights ever since. The wedge haircut has long gone, however the love of Jazz, funk and soul runs through my veins and always will
I started to like Soul music in the late 70s and the emergence of London pirate soul stations fuelled my interest in becoming a DJ, so I bought the gear and became a bedroom and house DJ. I started helping behind the scenes at London Weekend Radio (a pirate station) and eventually presented the Night Flight show and filled in for absent presenters playing Jazz Funk and Soul. I continued to DJ at various venues and events across London and the Southeast for the remainder of the 80s, before hanging up my headphones due to career pressures.I seized the opportunity early in the COVID pandemic of presenting on a new mixed genre internet-based station. I then moved to Soul Central Radio to fulfil my long-time dream of presenting on a soul radio station, spinning the tunes I love, for an audience that truly appreciates them
DJ Paul Fawsitt
I’ve always loved music then in my early teens I got into Soul music and never looked back. I’ve always wanted to be on this radio station as I’ve been a listener for years but family commitments never gave me the time. But now I’ve got the time so here I am I also do a few Soul nights in bars & Pubs just for a bit of fun.
