Okaysjon's History (written by himself).
This story is about my adventure as a DJ together with some friends which i started back ik 1984.
It started as a joke because we wanted a Disco on the sportsclub but they had nobody who could do this, so i said that i would do it with a friend of mine. They said that we may give it a try and so was it that i became a "DJ"at 15 years of age. My friend (Robert) and i (Sjon) started collecting the Disco equipment and 15 september 1984 was the day that we had our first Disco.
On the way that we were collecting the equipment 2 other guys wanted to join our fresh drive-in and so we became a Disco quartet (Robert(16), David(16),Hugo(18) and Sjon(15)). As i said 15 September was the first Disco and with the Philips MFB speakers and an amplifiŽr from Roberts father, 1 turntable & a tapedeck from my dad and another turntable & a 4 channels audio mixer from Hugo, we were ready to play....yeah right to play what?. we had a big collection of top 40 tapes and some records from Hugo & the dads of Robert, David and me and with that we started our first Disco, And yes it was an amazing succes.
All the kids from 6 till 16 danced their asses of and Disco White Horse was born (The name we took from the Laid back hit White Horse which was in the top 40 in august of 1984. there by comes that Robert had an wooden horse which was made with a figure saw and that horse did become our logo and name of our Drive-in.Later on we also did play the records for the older people from the club and also thema party's like Salsa, Italian and even a Country and western party.
In 1986 we played on a school for the first time.After a few times of playing the records with all the borrowed stuff from our dads we started to buy our own equipment and thats why i now still have my SL 1200 MKII turntable and my 8 channels phonic audio mixer, and about 500 12"es, 300 7"es,250 LP's, 300 CD12"es and 700 CD's (i just can't stop buying).
