by Paul 'Trouble' Anderson
CATCH-UP: Paul 'Trouble' Anderson (1959 to 2018) was an English disc jockey, with 'Kiss FM'. Paul Anderson was born on September 28th 1959 in London, England. A music fan early on, he came to favour the 'reggae', American 'soul' and 'funk records he heard in the youth clubs of the early Seventies, and his interest in music and records was encouraged by an uncle who ran a 'reggae' sound system and provided him with his first exposure to the art of "deejaying". His middle nickname came from the Trouble Funk soundsystem he ran, and as a DJ he was known for playing 'soul', 'disco', 'funk' and 'house' music, also being notable for his long-running 'Kiss FM' radio show. Although he had progressed to become a radio disc jockey Anderson still worked in the clubs, all the way from 1979 right up until his death, producing a number of mix albums during those years and also remixing records made by other artists. He helped found 'Kiss FM' (the UK's first legal 'dance music' radio franchise) alongside fellow DJ and entrepreneur Gordon Mac in 1985, and from 1990 to 1998 hosted a prime time Saturday show on the station from 9pm to 11pm. In London during that decade, the show was a very popular start to any "night out happening" in the capital at that time, and was widely-regarded as a pre-clubbing ritual for a whole generation of Nineties Londoners. He then followed Mac on his next venture, moving to his London 'Mi-Soul' digital station in 2012 and staying with that broadcaster for the rest of his life. Paul 'Trouble' Anderson died after a long battle with cancer in London on December 2nd 2018, aged 59. He leaves one daughter and two sons.

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
