Preview: Canvas Allstars: David Rodigan MBE

After almost six decades in the business, superstar DJ David Rodigan has finally received the ultimate industry accolate – a MBE. So all hail the reggae and dancehall sensation as he takes to the decks at Canvas next Friday to celebrate a career dedicated to music.

He’s spun for Radio London, Capital 95.8, Kiss 100, BBC Radio 1Xtra, BBC Radio 2 and BFBS Radio. He’s broken new acts and broken boundaries in clubland. And since his MBE seven years ago, he has not hung up his decks. He is still an active and enthusiastic member of the community, constantly striving to find the perfect floor-filling sounds. He’s even off to Japan this year to introduce the next generation to his finest Jamrock jams.

He’s also part of the Sony Radio Academy Hall Of Fame, as well as winning three highly coveted Sony Radio Academy Gold Awards; The Music Broadcaster Of The Year. (Kiss 100 – 2004), The Specialist Music Broadcaster Of The Year (Kiss 100 – 2009) and The Specialist Music Broadcaster Of The Year (BBC Radio 2 – 2012).
