John Osborne

John presents Funky Sensation on Saturday night at 6pm, plus can be heard sitting in for your favourite presenters when they are on holiday...

Your Saturday night's are in John's hands as he plays 4 hours of the greatest jazz funky and soul on Funky Sensation.

John’s a true radio pro having presented on national stations including Virgin, Absolute and Gold and hosting festival stages at V and The Isle of White plus major London venues from The Hippodrome to Wembley Arena. He still loves to play to a live crowd and is a main-line DJ at the famous Caister Jazz/Funk & Soul Weekenders.

Ever since buying a 12” single of Lonnie Liston Smiths ‘Expansions’ as a kid that lead him to explore the likes of John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, Gil Scott Heron, Bobby Womack and many more he’s had a burning desire to play the music he loves, so now on Jazz FM it’s a kind of personal musical dream come true.
