    I really love DJ Surgeon's 60 minute Boiler Room mix! You can find it on Sound Cloud for free! They have tons of free music! I love that app!

    exactly, wanna-be's

    someone who is doing nothing more than fucking around with other peoples artistic work and playing it shouldn't be praised for anything.

    Chemical Brothers are probably my favorite Electronic Act I've ever seen live but they don't really DJ.

    There are several notable DJ's I could put but based on sound quality I was easily able to find and the fact I saw this guy when he was kinda coming up I'll post Subfocus.

    Because one is of a certain age may fave (or should it be FAB) D.J. go "Back to the day" of Pirate Radio - and where Musical knowledge and creative stimulation for the masses of youth listening - whereas the modern DJ seem to be more either musically involved or, those who may have a good radio voice but lack the finesse of actually knowing what they are talking about - which is the main reason why I tend to listen to Radio stations that are more streamed to a particular genre/theme or mood of the moment
    Those which I do recall with fondness being (and some still swing - albeit on local oldie stations):-
    John Peel, Johnnie Walker, Alan Freman, Emperor Rosko - along with Kenny Everett and a young Tony Blackburn - Roger Day, Paul Burnett - and an even younger David (kid) Jensen, Andy Peebles and Greg Edwards (= predominantly Radios, Caroline and Radio Luxembourg)
    - Whilst across the pond being Wolfman Jack, Casey Kasem ... Thanks for asking :)

    A lot of them make their own music. They are called "producers". But I get that to an older generation it's just "pressing a button" even if you are just remixing what has already been done it's skill. The DJ's that get 1,000 to come are not the wedding DJ who plays the chicken song. Guys like that do just man the radio.

    I gurentee you that it's a skilled instrument like drums or guitar. Not an instrument you probably like though and it's fine.

    I thought the tune was "God is a DJ".

    Any list of radio DJs has to include Dr. Demento.

    About the "are DJs musicians" issue. Well, do editors write books? Editors are necessary for the production of a book, but they aren't authors.

    Does a DJ have to be considered a musician for them to get respect? Or can one think of DJ and musician as different things, each deserving of respect.

    In my opinion, it does take talent to match beats and mix..It's not easy, and it takes both skill and timing....
