DJ Fade™ (@djfade)
Radio mixshow DJ on 102.5 WIOG @WIOGmixmasters. Music Director for www.party989.com & www.rage989.com. Freelance music video DJ for various nightclubs & bars.
I was born & raised in Saginaw, MI. -(fast forward thru childhood, puberty, school, college, various jobs & relationships)- In 2002, WIOG's Mark Anderson, then Program Director, and Demas, then Morning Show Host, gave me my first break in radio. I will always be grateful!! I was recently the Mixshow Coordinator & Air Talent for 102.5 WIOG in Saginaw. True dance music, electronic music, was heard for the first time on The WIOG AfterParty from 2003 to 2004, featuring the best local DJ's from Mid-Michigan! I will always remember those listeners from the show. Thanks for making it great!! I moved to Northern Michigan in September of 2006 and met a lot of cool people and made a new best friend! I was the resident DJ at O zone Nightclub in Petoskey from 5/2007 to 1/2010, then at Ground Zero Nightclub in Traverse City from 1/2010 to 4/2011. I also worked part-time on the weekends on 106KHQ. Now, I live in Cincinnati, Ohio, mixing live on Channel 99.9-Dayton every Friday afternoon!
Nightclubs & Bars! Are you fed up with the so-called "DJ" you hired? Do you get complaints from patrons saying, "This DJ SUCKS!", "The DJ doesn't have the song I wanted", "The DJ talks to much", etc..???? Well, maybe you should consider a change for the better! With over 15 years of nightclub & bar experience, I can provide what those other DJ's can't AND MORE!
