Jinksy / Presenter

Jinksy shows

My real name is John Drinkwater (aka Jinksy) and I’ve been entertaining people for decades.

My passion lies in Northern Soul and over the years I have 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.

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

I’m know as ‘The Madcat of Black Cat’ and I’ve been with Black Cat Radio since the early internet days. You’ll find me on our schedule every Sunday evening from 6pm until 9pm playing great soul classics.
