Written by Zak - CEO LWR Radio
Elayne Smith, better known to us as DJ Elayne, is a beautiful and talented individual who deserves a lot of credit for her dedication to media, entertainment and music.
She is a female who defied all the stereotypes and with her energy and exuberance, catapulted herself into the forefront of radio in the 1980’s.
Recollecting how her radio career began can only be described as whirlwind. Having been talent spotted by Daddy Ernie, by then a distinguished Reggae man on LWR, he recommended her to the station and within a few days via a demo-tape found herself launched as the first female daytime presenter, at least in London.
She commanded the breakfast show which afforded her a massive audience which numbered around 2 million listeners.
This was the beginning of an illustrious career that subsequently took her to presenting her own talent search show, ‘291 Club’ which aired on both ITV and Channel 4.
Further success followed with an A&R Manager appointment at EMI records, giving her the distinction of being the first woman to hold that position in the UK.
The story does not end there, as Elayne went on to present Top of the Pops and join B Sky B for some of their landmark shows including “Rage,” “Global Jukebox,” and the “Chart Show.”
She was headhunted by Choice FM for their 9pm till 11pm Show.
Latterly she spent 10 years presenting various shows on Colourful Radio and more recently, she presented on Grenada's TSOG and West London based Beat London Radio 103.6FM.
Elayne’s career does not end there, as it is an accomplished fact that she is a fine hostess and very good deejay in the more prestigious events. Elayne has honed her talents and stands above all her peers as a true trailblazer and gamechanger.
Over thirty years in the entertainment industry and Elayne is still loving it
With its Original members to present the show; DJ Elayne Smith, Miles Crawford, and Tony Gully.
We have been working hard to produce a show that will not only be entertaining but will help launch a few careers in the entertainment industry.
291 Club Variety Show and Talent Competition is a cross between a show at the London Palladium and the New York Apollo, the 291 Club is a raucous show where the audience picks the best act.
