Paul Phillips love of soul music began in 1978 with the discovery of radio shows such as Greg Edwards and Mike Allen (Capital Radio), Robbie Vincent (Radio London) and the original soul pirate Radio Invicta.

During the early 80s more and more pirate stations started to appear on London’s airwaves playing soul funk and jazz, including JFM and Horizon while DJs such Phil Allen continued Capital Radio.


It was at this point that Paul started to take his record collecting more seriously. In 1982 he decided to start his own pirate radio station combining his two interests of soul music and electronics, and although only small it attracted a cult following around some parts of south east London. By 1986 even more pirate stations had taken to the airwaves of London including Starpoint Fm. One day on hearing a request for new presenters Paul made contact with station manager Carl Lewis and within a few weeks was doing regular shows plus assisting with engineering, using the experience he had gained through running his own station.


Between 1986 and 1991, when Starpoint FM finally ceased broadcasting, Paul presented many shows playing the best of the new releases of the day alongside 70s and 80s tracks.


After life as a pirate Starpoint Fm went on to broadcast under various RSL’s during the 90’s at Windsor and at the Southport soul weekenders and he continued to be involved in all of these until joining Solar in October 1998.Over the years Paul has taken a keen interest in all aspects of soul music as well as traveling around the UK and USA trying to hunt down some of those obscure 70s and 80s soul records to play along side the classics.
