Andy Field – The Early Show
ANDY FIELD Andy could regularly be found dancing in the underground Jazz
Funk & soul clubs of the late 70’s early 80’s including Crackers, Horseshoe, Royalty and The Electric Ballroom. He went on to DJ at Flicks, Dartford (1986-1989 ),
and also Fantasy Radio. The attraction of pirate radio was outweighed by the
prospect of large fines, confiscation of records etc, so he decided to follow other
avenues into broadcasting.
Andy was at Jazz fm for nearly 4 years, presenting several shows and becoming
studio manager. In 1998 he joined BBC Television as Presentation Operator &
Transmission controller, part of a team responsible for the output on BBC 1, BBC
2, Choice and Knowledge. 1999 saw Andy at the launch of South East London station FLR 107.3 where he presented nightly shows and weekend breakfast playing
Soul, Dance, Motown and Jazz Funk. It was here he met Tony Monson who invited
him to take part in Solar Radio’s Broadcasts.
