Steve Hart shows
Steve Hart hosts the Cool Nights Jazz & Soul show every week; playing the latest smooth jazz releases, a spoonful of soul, and a pinch of 80s club classics. Listeners enjoy Steve’s take on the week’s news, there’s the Cool Cut of the Week, listener requests, and a quiz.
Before training to become a journalist, and working in the newsrooms of both Essex FM and BBC Essex, Steve was a professional club DJ during the 80s and early 90s working across Essex, London and Kent.
Residencies included Zero 6, Zhivago’s, Electric Blue, and High Society in Southend. Kent clubs included the iconic Nero’s 2000 (Ramsgate), Oceans 11 (Hythe), and Woody’s (Sheerness). London gigs included regular appearances at the Hilton Hotel’s function suite.
In tandem with his club work he spent more than three years as a presenter at Radio Top Shop hosting shows almost every day to mid-1986. He hosted shows as a volunteer at Southend Hospital Radio, and did breakfast at Radio Basildon.
Steve works as a freelance writer, voice over artist, and podcast producer. He has written three books; the most recent of which are Podcasting Made Easy and a science fiction title called Mayan and The Legion of Alice.
