Since 1961, Skippy White has made records his business. As a seller, producer, label owner, DJ and all around 'good guy', he has been the go to guy for soul and gospel music for as long as most remember. Located alternately in Central Square, Cambridge, South End, Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, Egleston Square and any inadvertent left-outs, the man has presided over the Boston Kingdom of Soul and maintained it through thick and thin for over 50 years. He's DJ'd on more radio stations than any other DJ in the area and always with his own musical agenda.

His most notable show may have been in the early days when he hosted a program at the now defunct WILD-AM. Junior Washington recorded a theme on WILD records that people still collect. Thanks to Popsike.com, Boston Magazine, and Mr. David Kruh for the photos.
