      try DJ Derek…

      “Derek was born & raised in Bristol, & during the late 50′s & early 60′s fell in love with the music & culture of the West Indian immigrants moving to Britain. He picked up the lingo by hanging around in barber shops & listening, & picked up the groove by buying & selling reggae records around the country.

      Now in his late 60′s Derek tours the country armed only with a backpack full of killer tunes, his bus pass & an unquenchable thirst for real ale.”
