My interest in music began at an early age. Growing up in Raleigh, NC, we were lucky to have stations such as WKIX and WYNA. They flooded the airwaves with soul and local music. I used to go to Arlens and buy a grab bag of records for 5 bucks. I think you would get 10 45’s. That was around 1965. Since then I have collected almost continuously. My favorite music being Jump Blues from the 50’s and 60’s Northern Soul. I have been a club DJ for 31 years, having spent the majority of those at DUCK’s in Ocean Drive, SC. I am one of 13 founding members of the Association of Beach and Shag Club DJ’s. I have served as President 8 times and I have served as a board member the other years. I was inducted into the Beach DJ Hall of Fame in 1995. I have Co-Chaired DJ Throwdown, held every year at Ducks Beach Club and received a CMBA award in 2013 for promoting local beach music. I hope you enjoy both of my shows. Cat Scratchin’ which emphasizes Jump Blues , both single artists as well as Group Vocal and The Northern Side of Soul which chisels out the popcorn side of Northern Soul.
