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 stacker at Sainsbury.
