Catch Alan 9:00 to 12:00 Wednesday Mornings


Hi from me Alan Champs aged funkateer. I have always loved soul / funk / disco and Jazz Fusion.

I started DJing at the age of 20 as a mobile DJ in south east Kent and fortunately I soon had a residency in Ramsgate, Kent, at a venue called the Dixieland Showbar [ 1974 ] oh no, you are now getting an idea of how old I am [ Jurassic Park ] .

The Dixieland Showbar is now the largest Wetherspoons UK, so I am proud to have played this venue back in the day .

I gave up the DJing to concentrate on married life and bringing up a family ( I have two daughters ), whist having a ear to the radio and taking an interest in the music we love.

Forty years later my wife develops a terminal brain illness and passes away .

To cut a long story short, two years ago I asked if I can spin for the Soul by the sea crew in Herne Bay,Kent. The boys like what I do and it’s good to be included on the roster now .

Since then I've done warm ups for some serious DJs and had a grounding in radio with SoulBeat’s Jell Shore and I believe that life is about learning and we are never too old to learn .

I look forward to working at this wonderful station ,This is where I am at today and where I want to be, thank you for reading, cheers Alan
