I started on radio in 1994 with Wales first ever Urban Music station (Dock of the
Bay) which I co-founded with the one and only Kervin “Dr Feelgood” Julian. As the
majority of these programmes were on RSL’s most of those years have been spent on
Specialist Shows such as “The Love Machine” and “Cruising By”. I am Jamaican by birth
and I have traveled extensively and played around the world in cities like New York
and Kingston as I love meeting and interacting with different cultures.
Before getting into radio I was a singer and a DJ on the Pub circuit, where the name
Bobby Smooth originated from. I have worked at several jobs from duct fitting, mechanic,
coach driver, chef, travel document advisor and shelf stacking in Sainsbury.
Radio is the only job that I have never been paid for yet it is the one that I enjoy
most! I have had the pleasure of interaction with the Cardiff public over several
years and I believe that they deserve me!
When I'm not on the radio I'm fishing, playing in the clubs or gigging, I usually
go to watch my sons play rugby or just ‘veg’ out on the sofa as my partner usually
says. I also enjoy watching Discovery wildlife shows to the consternation of my children.
I am a chef and I am usually in the kitchen on the weekend. I used to be a boxer
but seem to have completely lost my motivation and drive as age seems to be catching
up with my wilder days. I was advised by my Doctor to shed a stone to prevent future
complications that I may or may not encounter but what the hell, I live for the moment!
I am in an eleven year relationship with my fiancée Rhian and I live with her along
with my daughters Romey and Mia and my son Levar. My oldest son Luis is in university
and his brothers Andre and Kamal with their other sisters Gabriella and Habbiba usually
come over on the weekend. I regularly embarrass Luis about his girlfriends on the
They say that “when you do good no one remembers, and when you do bad, no one forgets”
so I want the whole world to hate me. What a way to be remembered!!!
