'Soulman' Ady

Wednesdays 7 - 9PM

I started out DJing hobby / interest as a teenager, listening to and taping the Top 40 on Radio 1 on a Sunday afternoon. Then, as a teenager in the late 70s, The Mod & Skinhead music was in full revival, and I was into Two Tone music as a rude boy, wearing a black Harrington, black Sta-Prest trousers, white Fred Perry, white socks & black loafers, with a grade-2 crew cut hair with tram lines (now got a truck tyre track on my head, lol).
I had friends that were mods, so listen to 60’s Mod music: The Who, Small faces,The Kinks, etc; Motown, Jazz, R&B  and Mod Revival music, The Jam, Secret Affair, The Lambrettas,The Squires, etc. My Skinhead friends listened to Two Tone, Bluebeat, Trojan & Reggae. 

I then started collecting records, and acquired my taste in music, before practising DJing on my 60s-style Philips record player in my bedroom. Then, in the early 80s, I got into Hip-Hop, Techno & breakdancing. I think that’s where I lost my hair on top, while spinning on my head. I then started DJing in the late 90s and 00s, back in the ‘scooter scene when getting myself a ‘scooter. 

I got into the Northern Soul scene, then, by going along to Anne & Gary Todd’s Soul Shoes event, where I fell in love with the music & the dancing. Since then I have been DJing vinyl at Mod & Northern Soul events around the country and abroad. In the daytime I am one cool guy, working as an Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Engineer for a south coast company. 

My show is on Wednesday evenings, from 7pm - 9PM, where I go under the name Ady ‘Soulman / Hitman’ Hunt, playing 60s Mod, R&B, Ska, Reggae, Northern & Modern Soul music from my own record collection, and occasionally where LouLou & I also broadcast a show together as Lady P & Mod Parka! Hope you can listen in then… KTF
