He started life as a journalist although Robbie Vincent's broadcasting career began as one of the pioneers on BBC Radio London in early 1974 during the miners' strike and Three-day week hosting a new style of phone-in show called Late Night London playing "devils advocate" with the telephone callers. People would call in to the station with their problems or comments. The programme was broadcast late in the evening in the London area and was probably one of the first radio 'phone-ins' in the UK.
Later hosting a BBC Radio London soul show on Saturday lunchtimes playing artistes such as Evelyn 'Champagne' King & Crown Heights Affair. Robbie would invite guest DJs, such as Chris Hill, Tom Holland, Froggy, Sean French etc. to play their favourite three records that came in 'hot off the press' that week. The shows were considered essential listening to the Capital's soul music fans. He would also be a DJ at the infamous 'Caister Soul Weekender' events (the first event was called '1st National Soul Weekender' in April 1979) in the late 1970s/early 80s with the original DJ line up alongside Chris Hill, Greg Edwards (presenter of Soul Spectrum on Saturday afternoons on London's Capital Radio), Chris Brown, Jeff Young, Tom Holland and Froggy. He also presented a 'soul and disco' show on BBC Radio 1 briefly in 1977 between 5.30 and 6.30 pm on Saturday evenings.
In the early 80s, he was credited with launching the career of US jazz funk combo, Maze with Frankie Beverly, in the UK, and was one of the few radio presenters in the UK to have interviewed Marvin Gaye.
In 2006 he has occasionally been a guest presenter on Tony Monson's 10am to 1pm weekday show on Solar Radio in the UK. He has carried out joint presentations of the show on several occasions where he brought in all the music.
More recently he can be seen and heard at London's Clapham Grand soul nightclub. He DJ's there along with other top names such as Chris Hill and DJ Froggy.
Vincent will return to the airwaves on October 12 presenting a three hour show on Sundays for the relaunched Jazz FM service.
