Martin talks of his career and his journey to Auckey Show 2021.


My Disc Jockey career, that started way bock in 1976 in my home town of Rugby in the Midlands. Like many, I started with a mobile disco and worked in The Crown pub and Emmeline's nightclub until I was asked if I would like to travel to Skegness for the summer season of 1980 and work as a Butlin's Redcoat and resident DJ entertaining the many thousands of holiday makers flocking to the East coast. After the summer season, I wanted to spread my wings and after talking to a DJ at ''The Mardi Gras Club" in Skegness, that we Reds frequented on our one day off, he gave me a business card for a entertainments agency that offered work in Europe and Scandinavia and I was invited to take a six month tour of Norway, working in prestigious hotels and nightclub venues around the country and even taking me north above the arctic circle to The Lofoten Islands and further north to Tromso (called Paris of the north).

Martin Kaye 1s

In the mid 60's, vinyl records were being used less and less and CD's were taking over the market, Iembraced this as they were a lot lighter to carry around on the road than my record collection,even though the vinyl sound could never be repeated. Having my vinyl collection from the late 50’s to the late 80’s, these were my work tools that always needed to be kept up to date. As a profesional Disc Jockey one of my philosophies has always been to keep my customers satisfied by playing the requests they asked for.

While working in the city of Trondheim in 1985, I was asked to work on a local radio station broadcasting a lunchtime show twice weekly, this was where I caught the bug for radio. After a period of 16 years, living on The Lofoten Islands I moved back down to Trondheim in 2009, where I worked in hotels and corporate venues and again on Radio Trondheim having a daily lunchtime 12 till 2 pm show.

In 2017, I chose to return to good old blighty, to my roots in Rugby. I had through the years kept in touch with a good friend from Auckley and visited on several occasions. While searching for property the area of Doncaster was recommended and at the beginning of 2016 a house in Auckley became available which I purchased. Through recommendations from another friend from Hull I was put in touch with ELITE Sound based in Leeds, who had venues within South Yorkshire, so I was back on the road again driving most weekends to and from wedding venues, family celebrations, Christmas and New Year parties, pub quiz nights or corporate events. This all came to a halt in March 2020 due to Covid 19 lockdown rules within the hospitality industry.

But, when one door closes then may open . In the brief days of the summer of 2020, when traditional recognition and remembrance of VE Day & VJ Day, I had the urge like many to be outdoors, so I set up my sound system in my front garden on Spey Drive and entertained my lovely neighbours with nostalgic music from the 1940's & 50's. My friend from Hull and fellow DJ who was now living in Switzerland and also broadcasting for multiple radio stations called me and asked if I was interested in joining one of the radio stations he was broadcasting on. In August 2020, I was back on air with the first of my radio shows in a while, on Friday nights 6 - 10 pm "Funky Friday" in "The Comfort Zone" on Total Radio UK which is also broadcast by a Dutch radio station based in Amsterdam.

I now also broadcast Monday 6 - 8 pm and simulcast to Hollands Palet radio station in The Hague and Total Radio UK, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 12 noon until 2 pm on Total Radio UK, with a format of 60' s 70' s 80’s and 90's music, we broadcast via the world wide web, Tune In App and your smart speaker such as Amazon Alexa.

I look forward to being a part of The Auckley Show 2021, as in the previous three years I have lived here, I have been unable to attend due to professional engagements in Leeds.

Best regards

Martin Kaye
