DeeJay Mac - Denver Hot Wax / Bio

I'm a veterano radio DJ, having worked in country, Top-40 and album rock formats. Thirty-some years ago I was on the air at KBCO and sister station KADE Radio 12 out of Boulder. As the afternoon host on KADE, I got to do a weekly oldies show called "The Friday Afternoon Club." Subsequent gigs included stints at a couple of top-rated Denver stations, KOAQ (Q103) and KRXY (Y108), during the 1980's. I was also the DJ providing taped music for the Texas-based Chili's restaurant chain during the mid-'80s. Formerly resident DJ for Honky Tonk Tuesday at One Eyed Jack's (the Continental Club) at 5th and Santa Fe in Denver. And some Saturday night honky-tonkin at the Santa Fe Tavern at 13th & Santa Fe.

This IS your daddy's country music... and rock 'n roll, and vintage R&B. That's right, those Oldies but Goodies. Classics and obscurities. Straight country and early rock 'n roll. Typically, a high percentage of the music I spin is from the original vinyl records.

In many ways, my DJ work now is a tribute to some of the legendary AM radio DJs: Alan Freed, Dewey Phillips, Dick Biondi, Wolfman Jack, Art Laboe, and Bill Mack.

I'm available for private parties and corporate events, and will be happy to provide a rundown of the various music genres in my library spanning over six decades. I love putting together well-crafted and curated set lists to create just the right atmosphere and get folks dancing. I also love the interactive aspect of working with a crowd, and responding to requests.

Listener-Member: KGNU Community radio. Tune in to "Honky Tonk Heroes" Saturdays 6 to 9 am. 88.5 FM and 1390 AM.
