Radio Cardiff Music awards...are back

Soca DJ Stephen Johnson, who presents The Lime soca and calypso show on Radio Cardiff, with Gwen Dickey at the 2009 Radio cardiff Music awards
Hi there winers and limers right across the globe.
Let me introduce myself, my name is Stephen Johnson and I host a regular Sunday morning soca show on Radio Cardiff, here in South Wales, UK. It's the only soca show in Wales. The show, called the Lime, has been nominated in the World Music Show category of the Radio Cardiff Music Awards 2010...and like a typical snake oil politician I come seeking your vote. The difference being you can judge me on my record by either listening in live on a Sunday morning between 11am and midday or by going to www.mixcloud.com/socalime where I've uploaded a number of the shows.
To vote, just log on to www.radiocardiff.org and follow the award signposts to the world music section and click on The Lime.
With the help of soca warriors from around the world the show won this category last year. I'd like to keep the music in the public eye and win for a second year running.
I'm pictured below with Gwen Dickey after receiving the Best World Music Show award at last year's event. I apologise for the horrendous grin, I'd been so tense throughout the night that I was trying to take the tension out of my facial muscles and got caught looking like a idiot!
