Using a pair of 1930’s HMV wind-up gramophones and a big box of 78rpm shellac discs, DJ78 provides atmosphere and entertainment in equal measure.

Playing an eclectic selection of popular music from the dancebands of the 20’s to the rock’n’roll pioneers of the 50’s he makes any social gathering that little bit classier. Looking dapper in his dinner suit and dicky bow, DJ78 can work completely independent of electricity, but has the facilities to be amplified when the circumstances necessitate.

Recently, DJ78 has appeared on BBC2’s ‘Working Lunch’ programme and on BBC Radio 1. He has performed at London Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, The Goodwood Revival, Bestival, Latitude, Llama Festival, Camp Bestival, Shepherds Bush Empire, Ulster Hall in Belfast, The Edinburgh TV Festival, Dublin Arts Festival and at more weddings than you can shake a stick at!

DJ78 also presents ‘The Shellac Shake’, a two hour radio show on the second Sunday of every month. It is broadcast at 0900-1100 live on Future Radio 107.8 fm in the Norwich area, or online at, where podcasts of previous shows can be found.
