Marc Collins & Andy Mason

Radio Show and Podcast

in association with





Marc Collins & Andy Mason have been working in soul radio and as soul club DJ’s for many years (although it really doesn’t show!). They started presenting soul radio shows together back in 1998 on Active FM 107.5 (Later to become Soul City 107.5), a brief spell apart and soul radio shows individually on soul stations Solar Radio and Stomp FM, reforming (gettin’ the band back together!), in 2010 with a very popular soul radio show on back2backFM and subsequently Likwid.London. The boys have now been welcomed into the Solar Radio family from September 2017. Solar Radio is possibly “THE” most listened to Soul Music Radio Station in the world and is globally available on the web at, Sky Chanel 0129 and DAB in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Norwich & Brighton. Their soul radio show, now branded Chat n Choonz (does what it says on the tin), and is still backed up on a weekly soul music podcast available at just in case you miss it? 
What you gonna hear? From classic soul and jazz music, to the very latest Jazz, Funk, Soul and RnB grooves! …… a bit of gossip and a giggle along the way.
