As far as the UK Garage music scene, and radio DJing goes, there haven’t been many iconic figures as successful as DJ Spoony. After getting his first break on pirate station London Underground in 1997, Spoony went on to have spells on Galaxy Radio, Kiss FM and Radio One, where he presented a Sunday morning show, and the 606 football phone in on Radio Five Live for seven years.
Not only that, he’s DJ’d at nightclubs and venues all over the UK and the world. I spoke to the man himself about his career, his work with Timmi Magic and Mikey B in the iconic ‘Dreem Teem’ and his love for football and golf. The interview started with him telling me how it all kicked off 14 years ago.
