a collection of interviews of many different djs, ranging from the 1940-present. it started with basic playing music for people in the 40s and ends with tiesto, very encompassing and quite interesting

If you DJ or are a music fan in any way, this book is essential. A timely continuation of ther modern history lesson begun by Mr Brewster in book one, this time straight from the main player's mouths.
If you call yourself a DJ, you've got to know this history.

A little too inside baseball for my liking, whereas the other book took your on a journey showing you the relationships between influences, people and genres this is (as described) a look at a series of people without the overarching narrative to bring it all together.

A decent book, well researched, but not as powerful as it's stablemate.

great info on dj's back in the day. Tony Smith and Robbie Leslie seem to be missing chapters on them. They both were big influences in our music.
