DJ MONDO-HOT 105.5 MIXER
Mon-Fri Lunch Mix
(On-Air Saturday 2pm-7pm)
DJ Mondo started messing around with the turntables when he was about 8 years old. It was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. His mom was cool with her young DJ because she knew his love for music and knew it would keep him OUT OF THE STREETS!!! DJ Mondo is from the “low end” of Chicago, Illinois and the streets were always calling. Spinning records is the instrument that the Most High God used to keep him safe and to further develop the creative faculties that He has given to all. Mondo started as a House Music DJ back in the day. With the rise of Hip Hop and R&B, he saw that his skills were universally useful as he simply broadened his range of music play and kept doing what he was always accustomed to doing, spinning records and moving the crowd. The DJs that influenced him coming up were Farley Jackmaster Funk, of the Hot Mix Five; his boy Steve Davis, DJ Pharris (the Heavy Hitter), and Bad Boy Bill. After graduating from high school, he took the tunes and style with him to the University of Central Arkansas and then to Illinois State University. At ISU, he began to gain On-Air radio experience at WZND (106.1 FM), hosting the “Afternoon Get Down” Djing in the clubs and spinning On-Air led to a mix show. Ya boy DJ Mondo is now currently a MIXSHOW DJ for HOT 105.5 FM (WCZQ). Come share in this musical experience and may all be blessed by the power God has place in music.
