On the road again! – North Lancs Soul Festival 2017

Hi Gang,

It’s almost time to saddle up and get ready for the weekend! And what a weekend? Bucket & Spade at the ready, and a trunk full of tunes!  We are off to the seaside town of Morecambe, in Lancashire.  For the 11th North Lancs Soul Festival, it’s a festival I have talked about since my last visit, in 2016.

I am always humbled when asked to return to an event, and this year the festival organisers have not only invited me, but also Boogie Bunker Radio.  So for me it is extra special, to not only be at the heart of the festival, radio will give the opportunity for those around the world to enjoy the fun, of a UK Soul Festival, Live as it happens.  Apart from the likes of Glastonbury, and the like, Such festivals get little coverage, although well attended each year.  Festival goers, as well as the organisers, will help to bring this years festivities to a wider audience!

Boogie Bunker Radio will broadcast LIVE from this years festival *(See Below), as well as record the whole festival for future broadcast.  Set times for the festival’s LIVE show’s will be announced on Thursday 18th May 2017 1-4pm(GMT) on Boogie Bunker Radio, in the Weekly Link-Up Show.  Although there are still some weekend/day passes available, when the venues reach capacity there will be no tickets available on the door, so don’t miss out.

This years festival will also see some other first’s! Apart from Boogie Bunker Radio Broadcasting, Some of this event will be live-streamed on Boogie Bunker Radio’s YouTube LIVE channel, and via Facebook live, Broadcast times will vary, therefore Subscribe to our YouTube channel, via the website or subscribe to our newsletter.


What can you expect from my Festival set’s? I will play 4×1 hour sets, across the weekend.  In two of the main rooms, all I will say is, you will get a combination of my radio show’s, and we will take a step back in time, to my early day’s…. I shall say no more! There will be a bunch of surprises, from me, and the Boogie Bunker Radio team. I look forward to seeing you all there, come and say hi!!

There’s More!

On our return from Morecambe! We take the Link-up show on the road, as we meet The New Jersey Connection & Guests.

Saturday 10th June 2017, We’re Back….. Diver’s Arms, Herne Bay, KENT... For Soul by the Sea…

The usual party madness, with Tom Edgar, Tommy Boy, Pete Hayes, Alan Champs, and from Boogie Bunker Radio… Yours truly, JJ Williams! Starts at 8pm-1am, Free entry, Live on Boogie Bunker Radio from 9pm(GMT).


It is always nice to get good feedback from the public for what you do, and I have to be honest, for various reasons, I have not always been the flavour of the month? And like a good wine, I can be an acquired taste.  Over the last few years, my loyalty, honestly, and reliability, have all been called into question, I might add, that sometimes this has been from competitors, or those with an axe to grind for whatever reason.  In life, I learned that people in general are fickle, and sometimes easily led, by others.  Rumours tend to have very little substance, however the reality, will always be far less interesting.  We Live, We Love, We Die!

My point is this!  We have one life, and it’s for living to its fullest extent.  This Weekend, I shall take the wife to Morecambe (Yeah, she’s still alive), and I will give the crowd a show to remember, and I will share a weekend of fun, with great people, and great music.  I won’t be worrying about what anyone thinks, or any gossip, or anyone else’s business, which doesn’t concern me.

Have a great Weekend, and if you’re in Morecambe, come and say hi, and meet the team.


You know what to do?
