“Music is magic and it’s brought magic to most of my life!”

Sharing that magic with his debut show on Ujima Radio,  Malcolm Haynes aka Baby Malc provides the perfect soundtrack for Christmas Day between 2-4pm.

Ujima’s newest DJ has certainly earned his stripes.  Having travelled the world for work and pleasure, Malcolm has curated for some of the world’s most prestigious events, clubs and festivals for over 4 decades from Glastonbury to St Paul’s Carnival to Dismaland to name just a few and these all are reflected in Malcolm’s eclectic, beautiful and bountiful knowledge of music. Malcolm is now the landlord at Bristol’s iconic Star & Garter in Montpelier, Bristol.

Join Malcolm at 2pm on Christmas Day for a playlist that includes the beautiful vocals of Selah Sue the Belgian singer and songwriter to some of his all time favourite songs ever, including Fat Back Band to Japanese composer Jun Miyake.

Plus it wouldnt be Christmas without slipping in some classic festive classics from the likes of Diana Krall and Tony Bennett.

But enough spoilers, for the full and fabulous playlist make sure you tune in to Christmas Day 2-4pm for the debut show by Malcolm Haynes aka Baby Malc!

Asher Thaxter Tribute show hosted by DJ Style – Code of The Streets

On Saturday 11th November 2023 DJ Style dedicated his whole show in in tribute to our Brother Michael “Asher” Thaxter.

Listen back to Part 1 here:

Listen back to Part 2 here:

Asher was the very epitome of what Ujima stands for, “collective responisbility”.
Ujima Radio was honoured and privileged to be able to share your messages and tributes and the community came together to share their love for this incredible man.
We are all in a state of shock at the unexpected passing of our beloved presenter Ras Asher, who has given many years of service to the station. This sudden loss has left us devastated and in deep shock. Ras Asher was a true humble lion with a versatile music portfolio, from roots reggae to jazz and rare grooves.
Our thoughts are with his children, family, and all those who share our sense of loss.
Further details on how we as a station will continue to honour him will be announced in due course.
May he be received well on his journey to the next Realm. Asé
