DJ Profile Image

Greg Edwards is without doubt one of UK radio’s true pioneers of soul music.

greg-edwards-sqHis ‘Soul Spectrum’ show went out each & every Saturday on London’s Capital Radio & put him into the public spotlight during the mid-1970’s & well into the 1980’s. After an initial spot on Radio 1, which started when he filled in for the DJ Emperor Rosko, Greg’s Soul Spectrum show on the newly launched Capital, went on to run for 14 years, getting legendary status among it’s listeners in the process.

greg-edwards-pr-pic-capital-radioGreg has been a key part of the burgeoning black music scene in the UK over the years & has worked at several radio stations since Capital, including Jazz FM, & has opened doors for many acts & stations helping them capitalise on the growing popularity of soul music. Greg now resides on Mi-Soul bringing his wealth of musical knowledge & broadcast experience to the recently launched station.

Grenadian born & NYC raised, the ‘buck eyed buddy & refugee from across the sea’ has been resident in the UK since 1971 when he came to London to assist in the running of the then newly formed Philadelphia International record label, founded by writer-producers Gamble & Huff. As well as his radio duties, Greg has DJ’ed at the Caister Weekender, The Lyceum’s ‘Best Disco In Town’ & more recently the Happy Days Festival, plus many more venues in & around the UK.

mi-soul-logo-thumbWe are extremely honoured to have had Greg join us at our tenth event in June 2016 when he took the main stage to great applause, despite some of the testing weather conditions for the crowd & he supplied plenty of sunshine in his main stage set!

Soul Spectrum is every Sunday, 1pm-3pm on Mi-Soul Radio.
