Badger Kelley

Tulsa, United States

I'm a DJ/producer/remixer from Oklahoma - the owner of Awesome! Retro DJ Service (awesomeretrodj.com) and DJ for the almost-definitely-weekly Radio SRO/Groovy Train live stream (radiosro.net, 7 PM central on most Fridays).

I started in the mobile DJ industry in 1988, then moved on to radio work, club DJing, and even a regular remix review column in a nationally-published magazine. It's been a very interesting journey.

I don't DJ from a laptop or MIDI controller, sticking with real vinyl and CDs. Even though I know that playing from a hard drive would be more convenient, I love being an old-school vinyl jock. No auto-sync here.

Dance/club tracks of the mid-1980s through the mid-1990s are my specialty. I also have a special fondness for downtempo/trip-hop, and I collect rare DJ remix service issues.

Finally, it's worth noting that I'm a Depeche Mode FREAK, a necktie enthusiast, and a collector of Atari 2600 games. To learn more, please visit djbadger.com.
