ProgrammeSmooth Soul plus RnB and Reggae
BioRicardo has been a familiar name on the London airways for the past 26 years playing a mixture of Soul, Reggae and R&B. After starting out in 1986 as a reggae DJ, his change to becoming a soul DJ was influenced by the classic house parties with legendary sound systems like Mastermind and Rapattack.
Ricardo went on to establish himself as a well known and popular radio presenter on a number of community radio stations, before enjoying three successful years at WNK radio, London’s first black commercial radio station. Following the demise of WNK, Ricardo has remained a popular figure in community radio as well as DJ’ing at many established events such as The First Friday Club and St Lucia Jazz festival.
A classically-trained vocalist whose first musical instrument was the clarinet, Carolyn's tastes in music run the gamut from classical, to free jazz, to RnB and gospel.
