Curly CJ - The Sunday Soul AffairI started deejaying about 15 years ago in the early nineties, when I was lucky enough to be asked to DJ alongside the legend that is Dr Bob Jones,at his Blues and Soul award winning weekly club night called The Surgery". I became a resident at the club, and had the pleasure of Deejaying not only with Bob,but with his many weekly guests who included Gilles Peterson,Patrick Forge,Mark Webster,Steve Hobbs,Kev Beadle,the list went on... great days!!After the Surgery healed it's last patient, I went on to play at the infamous "Blue Note" club in the now trendy Hoxton area of East London, where myself,Stevie Cee and Baby Browning were residents for 3 great years doing a weekly Sunday Afternoon gig called "The Sunday Soul Affair". Rare Groove,The Sunday Papers,West Indian Food, and of course the obligatory continental strength lager made the "Sunday Soul Affair" a gig that many people fondly remember,not least me! After the Blue Note closed down, I went on to another 3 year residency in Londons West End at Point 101. Nowadays I don't play out as much, but certainly enjoy doing the occaisional gig such as Chi-soul down in Chichester, and Monumental Soul in London. As for the radio, I have been on air now for about the same amount of time. Cutting my broadcasting teeth in the early nineties on one of East London's Soul Pirate radio stations called Groove FM. After Groove was eventually busted for the last time, I went on legal radio for the first time with Active FM,a soul radio station based in Romford.Graveyard shift radio in Romford, what a winner!! I eventually left Active FM to take a weekly show on Solar Radio for a few years, and then after misbehaving,was lucky enough to be asked to take my "Soul Affair" show to Starpoint Radio. This wasn't my first time on Starpoint, I did several RSL broadcasts, and had many memorable sessions up at the Southport Weekenders where Starpoint was the weekender radio station. So thats it, now you know a bit more about me, and how I have come DJ on Starpoint. I present a fortnightly show, that is broadcast live on a Tuesday evening between 19.00/21.00. The show is called the "Soul Affair". And I hope you enjoy listening ,as much as I enjoy doing it. Curly CJ...........not so much a man............as a set of initials.

Dj Dubz Dubtastic - Dubzy's Soul & Riddims ShowHello, Thank you for spending the time to read my biography i wish you a warm welcome from this Premier Radio Station "Starpoint Radio" and a special thank you for tuning in and making the whole experience a pleasurable one. My name is Peter but most call me Dubzy, I love my vinyl which consists of a wide range of genres of which I enjoy playing mostly uplifting Soul, Funk, R&B, House along with a passion for Lovers Riddims & Reggae, in general dance music intended to get you all up shaking your groove tings. Most of my vinyl ranges from the 1970's through and beyond 2000's it's still growing consisting mainly of 80's & 90's old skool, Imports, White Labels & Lovers Rock-Reggae Riddims. I remember back in the day carrying my mums (Shhhh) ghetto blaster around with friends listening to the next big track via pirate radio, spending my hard earned to buy them from our local record shops in London. I had the pleasure in my youth of listening to pirate radio stations like Radio Invicta, Horizon, Solar, LWR, Kiss FM, CruiseFM and of course Starpoint Radio with the likes of Robbie Vincent, Paul'Trouble' Anderson, Trevor Nelson, Greg Edwards, Scott James, Ian Dee, Jazzie B, Norman Jay, Richie Rich and Dave‘Roots' Rodigan were all big influences for me. Must say a huge shout to Carl, Steve, Mark and Ed for letting me be part of the team, I get such a buzz from playing my music here on Starpoint Radio.
Lawless aka Gayle Dumont - The Rum Shop SessionLawless aka Gayle Dumont hails from south west London where she grew up, one of 7 (middle child) surrounded by varying musical influences. One of her older brothers was into Studio One, heavy dub plates and sound systems, the other was into his disco 45's. Big sister was into punk and rock (bands like Bahaus & Southern Death Cult). Mum was listening to Dionne Warwick, Dolly Parton and Grover Washington Jnr. She was always grateful for this varied musical exposure and thinks that this in part, helped shape her first love of Hip Hop & Rare Groove and all things soulful with a dash of Elton John thrown in for good measure (guilty pleasure is "Daniel" by EJ).......but enough about that She always wanted to be a deejay, hatching up all sorts of hair brained schemes and plans (even had a stage name DJ Hyper G). Collected lots of vinyl (Blue Bird records was a second home in the late 80's). But marriage and raising a family put paid to those dreams (as well as Mum getting rid of her vinyl......a sore subject that I don't care to discuss......we are on speaking terms now). She listened to all the pirate radio stations, LWR, Horizon to name a few as well as Radio Jackie & Radio 1 (occasionally Radio Luxembourg on a Sunday afternoon) After a 10 year hiatus, Gayle was itching to re-enter the soul scene. It was through a soul weekender that her love for all things soulful was reignited and she has never looked back. She dj's on another well known online station and is a promoter/DJ for Rum Shop HQ where she runs a weekend alongside Hugh Haughton, Mac StLewis and Pete Precise called "Licks: Rhythm Assembly" now in it's sixth year. Has DJ'd at Bless The Funk, Hayling Island (radio room), Family Affair & Sunny Hunny, Clacton, Soul Sessions, Universal Soul, CampSoul, Rum Shop on Manoeuvres, All Souled Up, Grown & Sexy In Antigua, Soul In The Algarve and Soul Village, Lloret de Mar and she's about to debut at Sun & Soul in Paphos, Cyprus 2017.

Mark Collison - The Sunday Soul AffiarThe MK Show was born initially out of Kunle Olafare's idea to honour the anniversary of DJ Swing (Brian Daly) who passed away 22 March 2006, by holding a 24 hour radio show on the anniversary of his death to raise funds for the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust. The show has evolved with Risky Riscardo and Trevor "Soulflavas" Martin joining Kunle and Mark Collison, on rotation, every Saturday morning between 09:00 - 11:00. Kunle was the promoter at Bournemouth's popular "Confessions" club nights, mixing upfront RnB with a smattering of real soul. Mark made his name in the alternative (Soul/Funk) room in the 90's at the ‘Lollipop' club nights, where trendy London welcomed the concept of a two room club mixing House and Soul in separate rooms. At the time you would find him spinning at the Iceni, Jazz Juice and the Time Bar, educating the crowd with his love of real soul and jazz. Risky Riscardo is a professional clubber with a smile on his face - he knows his music! Trevor Martin has hosted TGR's Thursday night 'Soulflavas', spreading his knowledge to the more discerning listeners in SE London/NW Kent and those on line. He has also played at the "Back To Back Hat Sessions" at Islington's "Soul On Your Side" together with co-presenter Mark Collison. The show is ever evolving with regular guest spots, as well as the guys digging into real soul, jazz, funk, disco, and hip hop. Join the MK crew between 9am -11am every Saturday!

Markus Kater - MaxK - Groovefinder's MusicMarkus grew up musically whilst singing in the schools choir and learning to play trumpet.

Phil Levene - Eclectic JazzHaving been bitten by the record collecting bug during his early teens, Phil was persuaded to DJ at local youth clubs and parties. His first major gig was for the launch of a new record label and eventually found himself moving on to the 'Goldmine Club' in Essex, where the small back bar became a regular Jazz room. In turn this lead to his making respected and regular contributions to various gigs across the South East of England. Djing residencies included Southend's 'Back to the tracks' (7 years). 'Monday Nights' at Wag, London's Jazz Cafe (one of the resident DJ's for over 8 years) Point 101 (4 years) and the 'Hi-hat' at the Blue Note and the Jazz Cafe (10 years). Guest spots have included the now legendary Sunday session 'Talkin' loud' at Dingwalls, The 'Jazz rooms' in Brighton and 'Southport Weekender'. Groove Sanctuary at Madame JoJo's and upstairs at Ronnie Scotts. Plus countless one off events across Europe and the UK including the Cork Jazz Festival (Ireland), The Latin Beats Festival, (Holland) and the Montreaux Jazz festival, (Switzerland). Phil joined the now defunct but influential Soul 24/7 internet radio station on the day it launched and continued with his weekly show until it's untimely closure 5 years later. Presenting 'Eclectic Jazz' for Starpoint Radio has provided a much welcomed opportunity for Phil to explore and pull together the threads of the various styles of music that have been inspired and influenced by the genre of jazz. Phil's passion for music has resulted in an ever expanding collection of Soul, Funk, Jazz, Latin, Brazilian, Disco, Afro Beat, Broken Beats, Nu-jazz and music that defies being pigeon-holed. Pulling this rich mixture of joyful sounds together is both a challenge and a pleasure for Phil. www.eclecticjazz.com
Ray Ali - Underground RepairsRay, simply loves Boogie and US Garage. This is reflected in his show which he calls, 'Underground Repairs', which as the name suggests encapsulates the purism ,ingenuity and rawness in dance music. His inspiration stems from the likes of Phil Allen, Dezzi D and Steve Devonne on the Boogie Tip. He basically sees US Garage as the natural progression of disco and the early 80s sound. He keenly acknowledges the inspiration of the New York sound from the 90s and although the second hour of his shows is predominantly upfront , tribute is still paid to the tunes that spanned that era. So expect lots of diversity in the mix where Ray is accompanied with Mo Silvase, his long time House Buddy.

Steve King - Soulful Sounds with Steve KingSteve King started in radio with his Nyte Flyte show for IBC Manchester (The Illegal Broadcasting Company). The show ran from 1987 till 1990, and concentrated on Steve's first and last love in music, soul. In 1991 Steve started a new show for IBC called, We're Only Here For The Beer, which he co-presented with Quantice (Liam Fitton). Two guys, who's passion for great music was matched with banter that had the audience eating out of their hands. The show fast gained itself a cult following in and around the Manchester area, for its wacky style of presenting, along with playing classic cuts from electro, hip hop, soul and funk. This brought Steve to the attention of Duncan Smith, who at the time had his own show with Steve Quirk (The Dream Team) along with being the program controller at Sunset Radio. In 1993, Duncan offered Steve a Sunday morning slot at Sunset. The shows focus was on the best of days producers / songwriter in black music.
