Steve James suddenly surfaced in Hong Kong, like a monster from the deep, in the
year "dot" and was promptly nicknamed "Spot." Forget I said that! Nobody really knows
how old he is, but he seems very, very young - just a boy, really.
Steve started off his career in Hong Kong with Robert Chua Productions but was stolen
away by International Hotel Music (IHM), a company run by Vaughan Savidge and Warwick
Evans which provided customised radio programmes for hotel rooms back in the late
1970s. Strangely enough, Barry Bakker also worked there, along with Ralph Pixton,
John Culkin and Ashton Farley. "Spot" was in charge of all the recording and technical
side of the operation. He also voiced the odd commercial - the first being for the
Pink Giraffe restaurant on the top floor of the Sheraton Hotel. When IHM collapsed
under its own weight (a bit like a pregnant buffalo), Steve joined Commercial Radio
where he became a highly successful breakfast radio host. He then did the same thing
with even more success and fame with Metro Radio. Believe it or not, he was actually
the morning show host for The Metro Zoo on AM1044, following a long stint with 104
FM Select. He was also production director. My God! Where did the rest of us go wrong?
And to top it all, he is now a famous radio DJ with RTHK and regularly terrorises
Warwick Evans by attacking him in the newsroom. He’s completely out of control and
has taken over the internet.
He's now a dad, with a wonderful daughter.
He also has extensive bullshitting experience. We taught him everything he knows.
May God forgive us!
He is available (at a price) to voice TV commercials and documentaries.
