Junior Mac

Junior Mac’s passion for music was fuelled by his parents huge music collection, his father Mr Mac (as he’s known in the community) took his son everywhere hence the DJ name Junior Mac.

Junior first started Djing at just 13 years old, playing at neighbours parties and school disco’s; which eventually lead to him building his own little disco sound system with some cheap turntables and speakers, by 17 Junior had saved up enough money from Djing to invest in a pair of Technics 1200’s and a Phonic MRT60 Mixer and proceeded to hone his craft.

After a few years building his reputation, Brixton based radio station Faze One came knocking requesting his services. Junior’s natural ability to entertain saw him quickly move to the coveted Weekday Breakfast show where he assisted BBC Radio 1 DJ Fabio.

Since those early days Junior had worked for Switch FM, Rock 2 Rock, LWR and Prestige Radio until he eventually ended up at Lighting FM where he built a loyal following that not only attended his numerous events, but tuned in to his weekday drive time show in increasingly large numbers. In 2010 Junior won the CMA’s Best Breakfast Show Presenter & in 2011 Junior followed this with a further 2 CMA nominations for his Breakfast and Drive Time Show’s.

Earl Junior McDonald (Junior Mac) sadly passed away on the 11th December 2012 after losing his battle to cancer.
He will be sorely missed by his family, friends and army of fans.
