PAUL LEWIS - ‘The Ultimate Collection’ Fridays @ 4pm - 6pm
I have been DJ’ing since I was 13 and have always loved Jazz Funk & Soul having been influenced massively by my Dad (modern Jazz) and Mum (Soul).
During my 20’s I was the resident DJ in the Amphitheatre at the Brunel Rooms in Swindon which was a fantastic venue and people would travel from across the country, to boogie down and dance to Jazz Funk & Soul alongside some of the finest dancers in the UK.The nights were regularly mentioned in Blues & Soul Magazine and it is also featured in the book ‘The History of the UK Jazz Dance Scene’ written by Mark ‘Snowboy’ Cotgrove.
I appeared at various 80’s Soul Weekenders and DJ’d at various venues across the UK and was fortunate to work alongside some of the legends such as Pete Tong, Tim Westwood and Colin Curtis together with some of the finest local DJ’s in the South West.
In recent years I have DJ’d at various Jazz Funk & Soul nights and recently appeared on the ‘Soul Train Show’ on Swindon 105.5 Radio which really made me want to have my own radio show.
Being invited to become a DJ/Presenter with the JFSR family is a great privilege and so I hope you enjoy listening to my shows which will feature a collection of the ultimate in soul, funk, jazz funk and ‘real’ jazz
