Right On!           

Texas Ranger

Texas Ranger grew up immersed in the sounds of jazz, soul, r&b, calypso, mento, ska, rocksteady and reggae — be it from the radio or hearing her dad and older brothers playing records. It was not long before she started collect­ing records herself. As a child there were times when she would use her school dinner money to buy records, and go without her school meals; she says they were not that nice anyway! Those were the days when you could find vinyl records every­where; even Boots the chemist had a record department.

Since then, Texas has collected and inherited a vast number of records. She has never tried to count them all, as it would take her far too long! She is highly respect­ed as both a collector and selector, spec­ial­ising in soulful vintage sounds from 50s rhythm & blues through to 70s roots reggae and rare grooves. She has had various club residencies in London over the past 15 years. She co-promoted Trojan Explosion with Mark Professor at Market Place and is currently a resident DJ at The Vybz Bar in Harles­den.

Well known as a radio presenter, Texas Ranger has hosted shows on community stations for many years.
