I've been collecting soul records since I was a kid, always looking for something a little different. My tastes range from today's brand new releases right back to the 1960s. Fast, slow, funky, new, old, sweet, tough, crossover - if it's a good record I like it.
Today I have a monthly show of my own on Solar - "Sunday Morning Soul" that goes out at 10 a.m on the first Sunday of every month. For five years I hosted a weekly show on Soul 24-7. and I have been a regular guest on the "Soul People" show on Solar Radio.
My passion for music means that I also DJ in clubs, throughout the UK and Europe, and write articles about soul music. Some of the old articles I have written about soul music can be found at www.toodarnsoulful.com
I remain first and foremost a collector of music..... And with soul music there is literally no end to it! There is always something new out there to discover.
You'll also find on my mixcloud page some old interviews I did with classic soul singers.
