Caribbean Pepper Pot Radio Newtwork with the Bushman Nevil Bush
(Saturdays 3 to 6 pm / Sunday 4 to 6 pm & 8 to 10pm)
Neville Bushell, has come to be known as a loveable, sincere, talented and accomplished Barbadian!
Mr. Bushell, a true son of the soil, was born in Carrington’s Village and brought up at Chapel Place, Culloden Rd, St Michael, Barbados.Well educated, Neville graduated from ‘Modern High School’, and later migrated to New York, USA, to join his Mother, Ms Eileen Bushell-Neblett and family in 1964. Being an avid music lover, after working in various types of businesses, he pursued broadcasting studies at ‘Announcing Training Studio’/ATS, graduating in 1973.As an aggressive promoter of his Country of birth, the respected, charismatic and exemplary individual,
almost single-handedly began promoting the Culture of Barbados through the ‘Art-form’ of its music, beginning with the genre of ‘spouge’ and ‘Calypso’.The ‘Spouge’ beat wasn’t known to the New York & Tri-State communities, and therefore its presence wasn’t easily accepted, not even to his Caribbean family. However, with Neville’s determination, perseverance and assistance from a few Caribbean radio Stations, he managed to anchor ‘radio programming ‘to promote the music to the listening public, especially ‘Bajans’, who in those early days of the 70’s were extremely starved for music of their own. In addition he secured major interest in establishing promotional advancement of record sales through retail community ‘Music Outlets’.
As a distinguished ‘Community Award Winning’ radio-personality, Neville still actively promotes Barbados, it’s ‘Music, and Culture’, and also assist the many ‘Alumni & Cultural Associations’ with promotion of their philanthropic and community events. As a well-known, respected ‘Media veteran’, The Bush Man, as he is affectionately called, worked with major Caribbean Radio Stations, WHBI 105.9 FM (later WNWK), WBLS 105.7FM, & WLIB 1190AM, both as ‘Radio Personality’ and a distinguished ‘Account Executive’ for more than thirty (30) years. This he considers being his University in Broadcasting!
Neville Bushell still effectively promotes his loving Country of Barbados, via its various genres of music through his daily ‘On-Air’ live radio programming.In summation, and recognition of his contribution to his Country of birth, we personally believe that full consideration should be given to Mr. Neville Bushell as a ‘Community Awardee’.

DJ Steve Reggae Shoutout Show (Saturday 9pm to 11pm)
Coming from the U.K DjaySteve has a similar profile to David Rodigan, in that he is just 10 months
older than David, was first smitten by reggae upon hearing Millie Small’s “My Boy Lollipop,”
when the record hit #2 in the U.K charts in 1964.
Then in May 1973, DjaySteve was also present at the same time as David when the Wailers, as they
were then, appeared in one their first London gigs at The Greyhound in London’s Fulham Palace
Rd.There the similarity ends as David has enjoyed a richly deserved career as the U.K’s top
ambassador for the genre.
DjaySteve was part of the 60’s U.K youth movement that embraced Jamaican music in general and
the Trojan label in particular.From there his love of the music endured for the rest of his life.
He was a DJ in Croydon, South London, during the early ’80s but spent most of his life devoting his
time to his family whilst steadily adding to his record collection.For DjaySteve like most other DJ’s on internet radio stations, the internet was a game-changer,making it possible for anyone with a mic and the right software to broadcast from home.
DjaySteve started broadcasting his KarmaReggaeShow on GalaxyGold Radio in 2012 and has been
credited by a number of artists through the popularity of his shows with giving them a lift in their
careers they otherwise might not have had.DjaySteve then had his show syndicated to OneHarmonyRadio London and the now-defunct ReggaeVibes.co.uk which he part-owned.
In 2013, DjaySteve became the manager of German reggae artist, Roots Queen, but despite having
guided her record “Feeling Free,” to chart success in New York and Florida in the U.S as well as
the U.K, management for him was not a happy experience and he subsequently quit the business for
a number of years returning in 2019 with a new show on several other stations.
But no sooner had he returned than ill-health struck him down and he was again absent for the rest
of that year, returning once again in early 2020 with his website www.reggaeshoutout.com which
also houses his current show once it has been broadcast on the host stations.
During those short periods of recent broadcasting many more artists have enjoyed more exposure
from his promotion of their music on his shows, through his top 10 hit list, and he says that this
response more than anything else gives him the utmost pleasure to be in the music.
