Martin – DJ in a garden in Neath Abbey


Martin Thompson

He has appeared on local and national television, including Multi-coloured Swap Shop (BBC 1) and Pobol y Cwm (S4C). He is a member of Equity.

He started with discos in the late 1970s and developed a successful children’s show travelling as far as the Isle of Wight.

The mid-1980s to the 1990s saw the launch of the outdoor roadshow. The show toured most of South and Mid Wales. It even travelled as far as London.

In the 00s until 2017, he volunteered at Radio Freeway, in Morriston Hospital.  The ’Dr Ted’ project used magic, balloon modelling and music to help the child and teenage patients on to the road to recovery. 

Martin now teaches science in schools.


Mascot, the robot dog, has been a constant companion. To keep up with technology, Martin visited a Robot Wars touring show. The result is an original new creation – an Eight-Foot-Robot-Cat! Mascot II is still the main robot as he is the most predictable.

Corey Perrett

Hi, I’m Corey. I like a lot of Electronic Dance Music and House but will play all types to keep everyone happy.

I’m enjoying my time with the DJ activities and the interaction with the public and hope to see you soon.

How did Diamond Dust start?

My DJ career began around 1974 with School discos at Amman Valley Comprehensive School during the dinner hour on rainy days, usually on a Thursday! The stage and footlights were the only lighting effects we had. The sound equipment was a mixer amplifier with two vinyl turntables borrowed from the Form 6 lecture theatre.

Technology has moved on, and we have developed the children’s show, the mobile disco and also the outdoor show with the needs of our customers. We have replaced tungsten projectors with LED lighting, vinyl with CD’s and laptops, and a mono valve amplifier with a flight-cased Bose P.A. system. More recently we have added  Yamaha powered speakers. The theme throughout has always been value-for-money and care for our customers.

Best Wishes,

Martin
