Peter Young has, for a long time, been a favourite deejay of mine.
At Jazz FM he was one of the few people who played 'Northern Soul' on London's airwaves.
Prior to PY's tenure at Jazz FM, Peter was part of the team at Capital Radio in London during the Seventies and Eighties.
Capital Radio circa 1976:
l to r: Adrian Love, David Briggs, Maggie Norden, Tony Myatt, Graham Dene, Ian Davidson, Promotion Woman, Roger Scott, Bryan Wolfe, Jane Walmsley and Peter Young
Following his first stay at Jazz FM, Peter moved to BBC LDN 94.9 FM.
After his move to the Beeb, Jazz FM called Peter 'out of the blue' and asked him to return to the station for a resumption of his show that contains the now legendary 'Soul Cellar'.
The first show commenced at 1p.m. on Sunday 26th January 2003 (later moving to 2p.m. on the 7th of March 2004).
By October of 2003, he was asked to extend the Soul Cellar an additional half an hour by the stations management.
In May 2005, PY played his last Soul Cellar at Jazz FM, before moving to 'Smooth FM' in June 2005, which is the same station, but ran under a different banner.
By 2007, the station changed ownership, PY was asked if he would continue the legendary Soul Cellar, which he agreed to.
In 2008, the Cellar was discontinued for a short while.
The shows, at that point, were broadcast every Saturday between 5 and 8 p.m.
The Cellar will continue......currently on Jazz FM.
