Back in 1965 my first record player spun the sounds of Motown. I grew up the small town of Asheboro NC home of Archie’s Record Store, WGWR AM Radio Station and WZOO AM. WGWR hosted one of my favorite nightly radio programs “The Platter Party” spun by Asheboro High School students. During my ECU college years, I started seriously collecting records. ECU was a hotbed for college beach clubs like Chapter 10, The Elbo Room, Louie’s Lounge, Papa Kats, The Buccaneer, and Peaches Beach Club. In 1981 I happened to DJ at Peaches Beach Club, the next night I was was working 3 nights a week spinning tunes! 1982 I moved to Cary NC, from there I built my first DJ rig and 40 years later I’m still spinning tunes. Red’s Beach Club was my first break into Raleigh, Cary, Durham and Eastern NC Beach clubs which lead to Shag Social club parties. Dj’d my first SOS in 1990. The Capital Area Shag Club (Raleigh) invited me to DJ one of the best SOS parties for 5 and half years the Tilghman Pool Party! 1991 Gary Bass gave me my first shot playing at Harold’s Across The Street on Ocean Blvd.
