About your host

Dr J is of Sierra Leonean and Liberian heritage who, as a result of his love of music, became an accidental DJ since his school days in Freetown hosting parties, discos, and as DJ backup to live acts.

He continued his craft since arriving in Bristol in the late 1980s covering classical and contemporary music from around the world – Pop, Soul, R&B, Funk, Jazz, Hip-hop, Reggae, Dancehall, Soca, UK
Garage, Latin, etc. and including all African Beats & Rhythms on the continent and diaspora – hosting African Nights in the clubs, pubs, and community centres in Bristol and South West England.

Having worked at a range of radio stations, Dr J’s heart landed here at Ujima Radio! Starting out as a life-long Ujima Radio 98 FM volunteer since its formative days and as a presenter starting with World Anthems and currently African Anthems – both shows featuring worldwide Afrocentric music.
