Steve Aggasild Starpoint Radio

Steve Aggasild-back-to-love-weekender-events

Steve , born & raised in Aberdeen, Scotland, started djing at the tender age of around 16, but only started getting into soul music from around the mid 70’s but hearing the early Motown & Stax & Philly songs on radio, that’s what really got him hooked on soul music.

Travelling to the legendary all-dayers at The Highland Room at Blackpool Mecca & Manchester Ritz was, despite the incredibly long journey back in the mid 70’s, just increased the thirst to hear more soul music, despite the geographical disadvantage of the North East Of Scotland. Locally there was an abundance of great soul gigs which Steve got involved in, along with one fellow dj being the hugely well know & respected dj Billy Davidson, who of course went on to become one of the main stay dj’s at the legendary Southport Weekenders, alongside many other venues Billy was invited to play at. Djing for Steve led to a path in radio, firstly hospital broadcasting then when Aberdeen was awarded it’s own radio licence to broadcast in mid 1981, and knowing some of the presenters there, he started hassling them to get in front of the management.

A desire to play soul music on radio & much patience led to the first show on Northsound Radio in April 1982 where, through some station idents that were recorded for him, he quickly became known as The Soul Master, which still sticks to this day. Through full time overseas work commitments, Steve eventually had to leave Northsound in 2012, coinciding with his 30th anniversary with the station, a record which to this day is hard to beat. It was also at the legendary Southport Weekenders in the very early 90’s that Steve first came across Starpoint Radio who did the weekender radio & started doing shows for them at the bi-annual event. Since then, and juggling with continued overseas travel, Steve & Starpoint Radio have been connected one way or another for quite some time.

An 18 month stint on NYC’s Soul Cafe Radio until Dec 2019 presenting two weekend shows was also a highlight & his thirst for new music continues in 2020 along with playing music from the last 6 decades but for the time being, Steve presents the UK Soul Chart Breakers Show every Saturday Night between 7 & 8 pm on Starpoint Radio, playing all the pre-release & new release music he can find from the world of independent soul, soulful jazz & gospel artists from around the globe.
