HiResProfessionalPicDJ GAY JIM
DJ “Gay Jim” is well known from his many years on Kiss 108. After years of failed careers… three years in pharmacology school, a sad attempt at lion taming which led to his partner Roy being mauled by a white tiger, and eleven different inventions being turned down by the US Patent office (damn invisible panty hose!) he has agreed to push buttons for a living at a small outpost built on a land compost in Medford. He pushes button every 240 seconds or else 800,000 people will lose contact with the outside world while driving to work in the morning and will be unable to hum along with the philosophical musings of Kelly Clarkson and the Pussycat Dolls.

Dena has been spinning for 16 years. In that time, she has gained an incredible reputation as one of the very best. Her mixing is seamless. Whomever the audience, she consistently creates intense energy. Her talents are astounding! Dena also produces her own music.


DJ Triana comes to us from her native Chile and by way of South beach. She brings with her an international flair of beats: eclectic sets mixing Reggaton, Samba, Candombe and Bachata with your favorite top 90’s Hip Hop hits, the best throw backs and even some European Hip Hop.


Long time resident DJ and event partner of Dyke Night, Kris Kono, died May 2011. We will forever be grateful for her loving-kindness and moving our souls through music.
