Paul Wilson founded and launched Ubiquity Radio in 2015 however his love affair with radio was a journey that probably began in 1971, when at the age of 12 Paul discovered Radio Luxembourg and quickly realised that Luxembourg was the only radio station that regularly played black American soul music.
But it was to be another three years before Paul through his subscription to Blues & Soul magazine, heard about the Radio London Saturday morning soul show hosted by the now legendary Robbie Vincent. Paul became an avid listener to Robbie throughout the seventies and eighties which also saw the advent and growth of the so called illegal stations; JFM, Radio Invicta, Kiss, London Weekend Radio (LWR) and Horizon, all pirate radio stations dedicated to soul, funk, jazz, reggae. These stations provided a much needed service to the black community and indeed others as mainstream radio in the 80’s would often ignore black music unless it was deemed commercially acceptable e.g. ‘in the charts’. Ubiquity Radio is a fully licensed Internet radio station based in Johannesburg, South Africa.
We are currently in the process of developing our schedule of shows and to that end we are actively seeking DJ’s from around the world who are interested in producing shows for broadcast on Ubiquity, so if you are interested in helping to shape the content on Ubiquity drop us a line and we’ll be in contact.
