Chris Philips Jazz FM

profile-container copy-2

Chris Philips has been ever present on the London radio networks for 30 years. A real musicologist with a deep knowledge and understanding of Black music, raised on soul and funk in the 70s, hip hop and house in the 80s with an ever present passionate love of jazz and latin.

Chris’s first ever radio show was in the summer of 1984 on a small ‘pirate’ station called Activity before he conceived and ran weekend soul station Starpoint Radio (which is till running today on the internet!) and joined up with Gilles Peterson and Jez Nelson to run the much lamented K-Jazz, the UKs first ever dedicated jazz radio station.

Latterly Chris was an inaugural on air personality at London’s Jazz FM 102.2 in 1990 before joining London’s Kiss 100 in late 1991 where he remained for 15 years presenting play-listed day-time radio. Eventually, this took it’s toll on his soul and Chris decided to get back to music, his first love, joining Choice FM in 2006 to present a weekly soulful house show on Sunday evenings and latterly a broader approach to soulful music on his acclaimed ‘Global Soul’ show. After a parallel spell at the the now defunct national station The Jazz Chris rejoined the new re-launched digital radio station Jazz FM heard throughout the greater London region and online.

Chris currently presents the following radio shows:

Jazz FM (UK DAB) – Morning show host 9am – 1pm daily.

Presents The Blueprint on Jazz FM Saturday nights at midnight. 3 hours of new jazz heat with special guests.

Presents Instant Vintage every Sunday afternoon on www.mi-soul.com playing classic soul, neo-soul and more.

Presents Inventions & Dimensions on www.soulandjazz.com playing new and classic groove jazz.
