Rhode Island DJ Guest Music Expert on Frankie Valli and Four Seasons

It was fun being guest music expert on Phoenix community radio 1480 KPHX about The Jersey Boys film focusing on the music history of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. I grew-up with family legends related to Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.

Providence DJ Mystical Michael Featured on Bridal Guide

Aside

DJ Mystical Michael was featured yesterday on Bridal Guide Wedding Tip of the Day.

Tip of the Day: Looking forward to dancing the Hora, the Greek money dance or any other customary rites as a nod to your heritage? Hire wedding DJs that are familiar with your culture and background.

“Be clear in what you are requesting from your vendors — don’t automatically assume that they know what you mean,” says Michael Swerdloff, aka DJ Mystical Michael. This means providing examples of must-have songs as well as those you’d rather skip. Also, keep in mind that in order to be as inclusive as possible, you’ll want to have them play tunes that appeal to a broad audience, too.

Casey Kasem The Most Famous DJ EVER; Sadly in his Final Countdown

The most famous DJ ever, Casey Kasem, is about to finish this life. It is possible that today is his last day with us. For those who do not know who Casey Kasem is, I have included plenty of information and history below.

Casey Kasem The Most Famous DJ EVER - Rhode Island DJ - Providence DJ

Before I get to his public history, I would like to speak briefly about my personal history with Casey Kasem. When I was a child growing up, there was nothing more fun than listening to Casey Chasm and the American top 40. There were two radio voices that I remember as a child, one of them being Casey Kasem and any other being Cousin Brucie. The former was national and the latter was local to the New Jersey and New York City area. I can remember many road trips down to the Jersey shore every summer listening to Casey Kasem as if he was part of our family. I have to admit, a significant part of my knowledge base of music history comes from listening to Casey Kasem. Along with his kind and gentle voice, him and his team took the time and effort to research and share with listeners about the songs and artists on the top of the charts each week. We did not have Internet then, so listening to good radio DJs and reading the liner notes on albums was our primary source of information about the music industry. Casey Kasem was a leader in bringing knowledge of the music industry directly to the American pop music audience.

Casey Kasem The Most Famous DJ EVER - Rhode Island DJ - Providence DJ - casey kasum american top 40

As an adult I did not listen to Casey Kasem much. My music tastes changed as did the style of DJ on radio I appreciated. However, my respect and admiration for Casey Kasem never dissipated. Early in my career as a radio DJ, Casey Kasem was one of my role models. I am grateful for those rides to the Jersey shore listening to American top 40 with Casey Kasem.
