“It’s National Disc Jockey Day, originally designed to commemorate legendary radio DJ Alan Freed who coined the term ‘Rock n’ Roll’. Today, we celebrate DJs of every variety … radio DJs, club DJs, producer DJs and of course, wedding DJs.
I’m proud to be a DJ and I feel blessed to have had an opportunity to take part in so many different styles of DJing. From my 20 amazing years as a radio DJ (most of which were at 101.1 WRIF in Detroit), to spinning in clubs; not to mention the thousands of weddings I’ve been privileged to DJ, there are very few things that compare to the joy that a DJ feels as we watch a huge crowd of people having an absolute blast as a result of what we do.
So, today, I salute all the DJs that put the music in people’s lives. From the hard working club DJs who master turntables, to detailed-crazed Wedding DJs who keep the party going, to the Radio DJs that keep us company while playing our favorite tunes. Thank you for making our lives more fun!” – Mike Staff, President & CEO Mike Staff Productions
