Steve Bowles

Steve Bowles, AKA Stevie B, or Bowlesy to his friends, discovered music on the 25th December 1963 at 8:30am in his Grand parents lounge.  They had just given him his first Beatles LP and it lite up his life. Ten years later, he set up a successful mobile disco with his best mate Paul, together they went to DJ at the legendary Pantiles nightclub in Bagshot and other clubs around the area.  In August 88 Steve was in Ibiza, House music found him and blew his socks off. That new sound led to gigs in London, across Europe, the rave scene, and more local clubs over the years that followed. 

Today, Steve brings his DJ skills and musical passions to Radio Woking.
