Masters of the Airwaves is a book about the rise and rise of UK urban underground music radio.

It was compiled by original Kiss FM DJs/Broadcasters Lindsay Wesker and Dave VJ and features a vast array of contributors including Jazzie B OBE, David Rodigan MBE, Trevor Nelson MBE and Norman Jay MBE,


‘This book is like a musical memoir. It gives a glimpse of the players, innovators, tastemakers and most importantly black music radio fans, who, in the formative years of the industry were crucial to its existence today.’
