Tommy J / Presenter

Soul For The Weekend – Monday’s 8 – 10pm, repeated Tuesday 1 – 3am

Tommy says “I was born in Blackpool, Lancashire in the 60s where I still live, married with 4 children (what happened there?!) I started listening to music on vinyl from a young age and was given some records by my uncle to play on my first record player, a close and play sort of toy but it played 45’s when you closed the lid. In the 70’s and 80’s, I used to listen to all different kind of stations on the radio including what was left of the pirates (Radio Caroline) and Luxembourg 208 am (fading in and out). Since the late 70s I have worked at numerous venues from nightclub residencies, pubs and hotels to Mobile Disco work (which I still do occasionally) starting off on good old vinyl progressing to CD and then mp3. Out of all the formats I prefer vinyl but as technology has moved on I don’t mind which platform. My preferred genre of music is Northern Soul.”
