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.
 

New! Boston deejay Val Bernasconi talks about drug use in 1970s gay clubs, the legendary Carol Mitro and her store, Vinyl Connection, his first reaction to It's Raining Men, and much more!
