The abbreviation, D.j., stands for the word DISC JOCKEY. Very little is known about it’s origin but from the research that I have gathered, the first known Disc Jockey was a dance hall owner in America in the 1930’s. Dancehall’s were places were single men used to pay women for a dance. The owner who used to play the records found it was a bother to stop the dances everytime he had to change from one record to another, because back then only a single record player was used. It was then that the owner came up with the idea to use two record players so that the music could be continuous and the dances would not be interrupted….and the rest is history… the Art of D.J.ing was born.
