DMC have brought out the next instalment from the 'History of DJ' series. If you've not visited the previous episodes, we'd recommend that you take a look at the first three parts of the fascinating documentary series that's presented by Tony Prince.
The forth part of the saga takes a look at American radio from the 1940s and 1950. It'll go through the revolution in music from those two decades and how teenagers played a part in the styles of music that broke through on the radio.
Synopsis of the he 'History Of DJ' Part 4: The 1940s radio style and the music of the big bands with singers like Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby were about to run into the world’s first teenage revolution.
DJs who like to look back through important events in the music, radio, television and production will enjoy watching a fascinating series of videos from DMC. The short documentaries have been put together and are presented by Tony Prince and they form a package of informative videos.
In our previous newsletters, we've highlighted the first two parts of the 'History of DJ' and we noticed that the next instalment (Part 3) is available to view. These documentaries are a great way of reminiscing about the sector of the Entertainment Industry that DJs work in.
On Tuesday 27th January 2015, the NADJ North East & Cumbria branch of the National Association of Disc Jockeys (NADJ) held their bi-monthly meeting that was also their AGM.
After several years at the helm of the branch, Chris Dye and Andrew Nesbit, left their roles on the branch committee. The duo were thanked for all of their efforts and hard work they both put in over the years. The appreciative DJs in attendance gave them a well deserved round of applause.
As the branch committee stood down (as they do every year), the new branch representatives were elected with no objections:
Branch Chairman: Gary Kenny
Branch Secretary: Jamie Daniels
Branch Treasurer: Mark Ambrose
Due to circumstances beyond the control of the branch, Chauvet DJ couldn't attend, but their representative, Rob Moore, passed on his sincere apologies and made a generous donation to the raffle. We hope to see rob and the Chauvet products on show at our branch meeting in the not too distant future.
