John Drinkwater (aka Jinksy) has been entertaining people for decades.

His passion lies in Northern Soul and over the years he has played at weddings, parties and been involved in organising large events including six years with the Brampton Summer Fayre and the Huntingdon and St Ives carnivals.

He’s been a DJ in nightclubs, pubs and clubs since 1968 running a team of five DJs. In the 80s he was involved in a national talent-spotting project, auditioning acts across the UK. He recalls that as part of it he had to walk a lion around St.Ives.

Jinksy – or ‘The Madcat of Black Cat’ as he is known – has been with Black Cat Radio since the early internet days. He can be found on our schedule every Sunday evening from 6pm until 9pm playing great soul classics.
