Drop Mike a line
Mike’s love affair with soul music started back in the 70’s, when as a teenager he decided try his hand as a DJ at a local youth club in Bromley, Kent. As he recalls “yeah, I wanted to give the locals a little something different than the regular pop stuff.”
Since returning to the UK after nearly 10 years abroad, Mike has preferred to operate behind the scenes. As he puts it “what really interest me is making a real difference to the soul music infrastructure”. He was an influential member of the BRBA which brought about the UK’s first official national Soul/R&B Chart and is a founding partner of the British Soul Renaissance, formed specifically to give British soul music a credible platform. In between all of that, he has been a professional footballer, national football coach, business coach and mentor, public speaker and TV pundit.
Mike will be presenting a new chat and music show on Saturdays called “Talking Soul” that will be light-hearted informative fun.
