Watch clips from interviews in
the Boston Deejay Project
 
We're collecting oral histories from deejays in LGBT clubs in the Boston area, past and present. We put the full interviews into our archives and present parts of them on YouTube. If you are or were a DJ in Boston's gay clubs - at any point in time - and would like to sit down with The History Project, please email Tony.


Caril Mitro - a Boston deejay (1270, Chaps) and long-time proprietor of the
Vinyl Connection record store - talks with Brian Halligan about her legendary career.
