June is National DJ Month. According to the National Day Calendar:
During National DJ Month in June, Radio & TV stations, owners, show hosts, business retailers and music lovers alike celebrate the DJ (Disc Jockey).
DJs, masters at their craft with technical skill, keep the nightclubs dancing, fitness studios sweating and music festivals feeling the rhythm. Whether broadcasting to listeners on the radio, engaging TV audiences, or setting a mood for a special occasion the DJ is an essential part of our culture.
Celebrate the artistry, mastery, and skill of DJs everywhere during National DJ Month in June!
In my many years on the radio, I’ve had the honor of working with some of the best DJ’s and radio personalities in the business. In the over 4 years I have been writing this blog, there have been many entries that were radio/DJ related. I thought it might be fun to create a blog that combines many of those blogs together in one place.
If you are a new follower to my blog, here are some early entries you may not have seen. For regular followers and followers from the beginning, please enjoy them again.
