Big thanks to JM for the 164th "Straight From The Play Box" mix.
JM bought his first 45 in 1975 as a youngster and has been hooked ever since. At school he used to supply mixtapes to his friends so becoming a DJ was a natural progression. His first love is radio and began broadcasting on the UKs first student radio station soon followed by joining pirates Solar Radio and Kiss FM in the late 80’s. It was at this time he adopted the ‘Connoisseurs’ moniker not only on air but as a journalist he wrote the ‘Connoisseurs’ page for Kiss owned Free Magazine. In the 90’s he helped set up Touch Magazine where he continued the page focusing on the collectors sounds popular in London. Although he did a number of special soul collectors shows on Kiss 100 FM his main focus became DJing in the clubs during this period. -- Continued in comments--
