Hello I’m John Leech The Soulman, you can call me Leechy. As a young boy I was always fascinated by the mystery of radio and the friendly sound of a voice coming through a little speaker from nowhere ! I was hooked at a young age. Radio has been my professional career for nearly 40 years. I started out at Capital Radio in the record library, when records were used on air, in 1979. I learnt so much working with many of greatest presenters in the country. I went on, to present early shows on Capital and I also worked at their infamous Best Disco In Town and on the Capital Cruiser every weekend. In 1986 I joined Essex Radio to present a daily soul programme. Over 15 years, I attained a very big following of soul music fans with those programmes. My radio shows have won 13 World Awards, including 4 Gold Medals at the New York Festival and a Sony award. These days I’m on the BBC and I’m here at the great Time 107.5 presenting The Interactive Drive, Monday to Friday 4-7pm and I play Soul after 7pm. Come and be part of it. I invite you to choose much of the music we play on your way home from work, in my Through The Gears. Dance Decades at 7pm is where we play the soul, old and new, it’s quality guaranteed.
