    Waveney Valley Radio Listen Live with Waveney Valley Radio


David Southway

David J Southway started a broadcasting career as one of the first ‘Disc Jockey’ voices to be heard on BBC Radio  . Bristol, on a Saturday morning in September 1970. (my producer advised me the others were ‘radio  presenters’). I spent approx. 4 years at the BBC, presenting different programmes as well as current  affairs producer. I have also  worked for GWR radio, Classic Gold, WFM, Star Radio and Pulse Radio. Most of these were at the  time very successful stations across the UK South East, South Coast and South West. As most radio presenters did at the time. I started out as a club DJ when the Soul Music genre was  very powerful, with a growing following. It is encouraging to know that even after the time that has  passed there is still as much interest in this genre as there was in those early days. The idea for Soul  Vaults show was brought about after discussion with many people who were intrigued by the origins  of ‘Old Soul’ and more importantly the lack of information about what is after all a key part of our  musical heritage. I saw this as an opportunity to couple my love of the music genre together with my  passion for radio. The show not only plays the songs but provides the background to the songs and  the artists.
