DJ Islandstone is a guest DJ on 102.3 FM The Beat Chicago. Tonight, we feature him on our Friday Night Jams, part of our Retro Dance Classics Weekend.
The weekend is brought to you by Digital Saviors Chicago, transferring 8mm film, all audio tapes (including mixtapes), all videotapes (VHS, Beta, Hi8 and more), photos, vinyl, negatives, we colorize black and white pictures too! Camcorder video, video, and pictures from old smart devices, slides, video presentations for special events such as anniversaries, birthdays, etc. and more.
Keeping the tradition alive started by our sister network WBMX back in 1981, the Beat Chicago is bringing old school back to the radio, online and in our app!
Back in the day, people used to record the mixes on the radio so they wouldn’t miss them. People around the world have huge collections of those mixes from back in the day.
Today, we do all the work for you by uploading each week’s mix show to our website on Tuesdays. Once uploaded, you can listen to those mixes and all the past mixes, on-demand, here on the website, and in our app.
Each DJ mix show page includes the on-demand player, the tracklist (when available) as well as information and links to the DJ.
You can find all of these great old school mixes on-demand in our app and in our DJ MIXES section.
Tracklist due later this week
DJ:Islandstone comes to us from Norway. Originally from Sweden, he started DJ’ing on vinyl back in 1977. Spinning on everything from 12-inch singles to 45’s, this DJ has done it all.
Today, he’s a carpenter in Norway but still spins from time to time for private parties as a form of entertainment for himself and those he graces with his ability to mix all styles of music from all eras.[/su_tab][/su_tabs]
