Clayton started his DJ career with Jimmy Rainbow’s Rainbow Heart Discotheque in the clubs and pubs all over Scotland back in the mid 70’s.
He moved to Newcastle to the famous Tuxedo Junction on Market Street where he performed his unique style of presenting to a jazz-funk and R&B audience.
He left Newcastle in the 80’s to seek his fortune in the States where he eventually worked part time as a radio presenter on a radio station in Annapolis, Maryland playing music on a Saturday night.
Arriving back later to the UK he thought he had left the music scene behind him only to meet up with Jimmy Rainbow again years later, and be invited to join a local Edinburgh community station in 2009. He had a regular feature slot called Soul Stream, and left there in 2014.
He later joined another community radio station based in Haddington and carried on his weekly Saturday night show ‘Soul Stream’, playing the very best in Soul, Reggae and Jazz Funk. With such artists as George Benson to Blackstreet, from Black Coffee to Black Eyed Peas, and from Bob Marley to Hil St Soul.
He took a short break from broadcasting but is now back on the scene with Soul Stream on 107.8 Black Diamond FM broadcasting on a Monday evening between 8–10pm
