As long as there’s music, I’m happy!
I’ve been a DJ specialising in reggae, soca and dancehall music for over 35 years.
I ran Flex FM – a pirate radio station – for eight years, because Ipswich never had a station representing our community. For seven years, I worked with Suffolk Radio on the Caribbean magazine show, Ebony Eye, covering anything from cooking to racism.
As a Black person you need to create your own space in Suffolk, and make the most of any opportunities.
I’m do some journalism – I’ve made documentaries and interview with artists from around the world, such as 50 Cent. You can find some of them on my YouTube channel (daddyturbo1).
I was part of the original Sony Music Street Team – one of a few DJs from around the country – promoting artists such as The Fugees and Maxwell.
Home is what you make it – there’s never a dull moment. I’ve got three children and a two-year-old granddaughter but I’m not slowing down.
This year, I’m a guest DJ at the Sunrise Coast Weekender, and I have a show on Ipswich Community Radio every Sunday, 8pm-10pm.
Life is for living – do what you can before you depart from this planet.
